Strawberry is a very active toddler. And she loves going outside. So as summer begins, I’m on the hunt for activities that will help her get her energy out all the while maybe … possibly … learning something.
I’ve found some awesome kid bloggers to share some ideas with you. Here is a roundup of 12 awesome outdoor activities for active toddlers like Strawberry. I hope some of them help you in keeping sane this summer too!
- Strawberry can hop on color circles to practice color recognition. She really does not know colors yet at all! (from Learn. Play. Imagine.)
- We can paint a huge, oversized painting together. She will love this! (from Happiness is Homemade)
- Or maybe we’ll simply paint with water. Strawberry will probably love this too and it’s less messy. (From Hands On We Grow)
- We might run our own car wash! (from No Time for Flash Cards)
- We can play with hula hoops (other than actually hula-ing, that is). (From Learn. Play. Imagine.)
- We will make bubbles and enjoy chasing them. (from Our Little House in the Country)
- We might try learning some letters with a fun alphabet jogging game. (from Toddler Approved)
- Strawberry loves balls so we might play with balls a lot this summer.
- Strawberry can run around the yard with homemade twirling ribbon sticks. So simple and yet she’ll feel like a princess as she tears through the yard. (from Happy Hooligans)
- As I mentioned yesterday, we will be spending lots of time at playgrounds this summer!
- Best of all, make a booklet all about your adventures this summer. Strawberry will love reading her book with pictures of things that she has done! (From TwoDaloo)
