Enjoying the warm weather with kids.
2. ChalkThe things you can do with chalk are endless! Draw pictures, draw a target to throw things at or and obstacle course to follow, draw around yourself, or your child or get them to draw around a sibling or an object. If your child will play with cars for hours like mine, draw a road outside, let them bring their cars to the garden, and sit back and enjoy the sun whilst they play their favourite game!
3. WaterIf the sun is out and the temperature is hot, then you can't go wrong with water play in the garden. It will keep them cool and busy. Washing up bowls and bubbles is a popular one in this house and if I'm lucky they often offer to actually wash up which is one less job for me! Watering cans is another good one, and potentially one less job for you to do! Depending on how much space you have, as well as resources, just simple pouring jugs and boats are fun, or if you don't have anything to put them in, buy a cheap spray bottle and fill it with water. My 4 year old spent hours last summer just squirting things with water or running through the mist he had just made!
4. Bubbles.Such an easy one and CHEAP! Kids love bubbles it's a fact, they also love not looking what they are doing, pouring the bubbles on the floor and then crying, but they really enjoy themselves before that!
