Happy Spring friends!
This is such an exciting time in the year. If you are a stay at home mama or papa, preschool teacher, or even a nanny and you are looking for fun outdoor activities for little ones this is the blog post for you!
Tripp and I LOVE being outside and I love being able to incorporate learning through play. I think its important to get your kids outside and moving. Why have them watch kids on TV playing when they can have fun outdoors themselves.
Today Tripp I went to the park and had a picnic under the trees. I along with plenty of snacks, I brought a ball, books, stickers, and crayons to keep him busy before heading to the playground area.
I record a quick vlog showing y’all our set up at the park. Check out my vlog and continue to read, to find a list of more outdoor activities that you can do with your toddler(s).
Budget Friendly Toddler Activities:
Bring toys from home such as a ball or bubbles to play with in an open field. Remember to pack plenty of water and snacks!
2.) Kiddie Pool
I got my pool that Tripp uses for really cheap at Walmart. I even seen the blow up kind at the dollar store if you don’t have the space to store the hard plastic kind.
3.) Backyard Camping
Our backyard is super small and is not suited for this. However if you have a larger backyard you could eat dinner outside like you are camping. You don’t have to sleep outside all night but wouldn’t it fun to show your little one the stars and let them explore their surroundings with a flashlight?
4.) Fly a Kite
It’s such an easy art activity and its inexpensive to make your own kite. This is a fun activity that could be made and played with outside.
Its strawberry 🍓 picking seasoning and what toddler wouldn’t love picking their own snack to eat. There are other fruits that y’all can pick together at the farm too as well. This it s a great opportunity for them to see how food grow. Not only can you pick your own food but you can look at all the fun farm animals that live at the farm.
6.) Side Walk Chalk
There are so many things you can do with chalk out side, you can draw shapes and talk about colors. I’ve seen people create a life size board game using chalk for the whole family to enjoy. You can create a car track for his/ cars.
Chalk is super easy for your little ones to hold in their fingers. I like to let Tripp get use to making strokes on the ground. This is also great fine motor skills and eye hand condition practice.
I hope you enjoyed my blog post and consider coming back again. I enjoy spending extra time with my little guy and hope you find this blog post helpful. I’ll see y’all here again soon!
