Outdoor Inspriration

Recommended Posts

Hi

One afternoon every week I plan to have an outdoor session where all chidlren are outside for the whole time, taking part in adult led activities. These groups will rotate every week, so that my 4 activities will last 4 weeks and then the 5th week will be free play with these activities. I am going to start with:

Paint splattering on large paper attached to fences

Tyre rolling with soapy water and paint

gardening

Trays of icky sticky stuff for children to walk in bare foot and make footprints.

 

Other ideas I have so far are:

Throwing at targets

Washing and pegging clothes

Walking in and out of cones on stilts

large chalking patterns

sawing and nailing wood

Pumpuing up balloons and chasing them

Flying kites

 

Does anyone have anymore ideas to help build up my repertoire?

love your signature rufus :(

 

Can I come and play, sounds like your planning lots of fun. :wacko:

other ideas;

 

Parachute

Carwash ( childrens wheeled toys) or if the owners let them, real car washing, :o ) p.s will need to go through a 'real' car wash once the children have finished with it! :(

pipes and waterfalls

sandpits

rain pictures (put powder paint on sugar paper, watch the rain drops see the patterns)

adult maypole dancing ( I used plastic ribbon cut from a door curtain foun in a hardware store xD )

Fish (the faces in the pics says it all really :( )
