Outdoor Activities That Are Anything But Boring

Posted on 05-10-2016

As the grass dries out and the weather gets warmer, take your children outside to run around, play, and soak up the sunshine. There are many options for outdoor activities – but some of them take a little bit more planning and creativity. Here are a few outdoor activities that require very minimal planning and preparation.

Whatever you choose to do with your children, remember that quality time spent with them is more important than the activity that you actually end up doing!

Plan a scavenger hunt.

Before you go out to your favorite park or nature area, make a list of items for your child to find or do when you get there. It can be as easy as “Find a tree with flowers on it,” “Find a dandelion,” or “Do 10 jumping jacks!” The goal is to keep your child occupied and active! If you want to encourage some healthy competition, set a timer and reward the child who gets done with the scavenger hunt first!

Pitch a tent and have a “camp out” in the backyard.

If you have a backyard, take your kids outside for a “camp out.” Pitch a tent, bring out some sandwiches and lemonade, and pretend you’re in the middle of a forest. When it gets dark, look for shooting stars, and maybe even tell spooky stories!
