- construction big and small, indoors and out ? Lots of positional/comparative language

- getting to know some of the great words to do with castles, like dungeon, portcullis, battlements, trapdoor, crenellations, oubliet, drawbridge, motte and bailey - they can biuld a lot of these in the sand - boxes, buried make good dungeons as long as theyre strong.(make sure you have a prisoner or two to sling in and some treasure) I usually find there are some that love this kind of language in the same way they love long dino names!

- those long foam noodles/woggles (floats for the pool) make good lances or can be cut short for swords - we've had them as general outdoor toys for a long time and they have been well used in a host of ways - and pretty much harmless.

 

all can come up with off top of head but sure will be more ideas along ...sounds like a lot of fun :)
