I always seem to be looking for creative ideas to get my kids outside. My collection of ideas is growing, but I’d love to hear what you do with your kids… a bike wash station, nature hunt, mud pie factory in our front yard, rope swing… those are some of our favorites right now. My boys are not quite old enough to play outside unsupervised. Trey (almost 2) needs much more hands on attention than Owen (4).
Anyway, Owen has seen me painting a lot more lately and he has been begging me to let him paint.
So I rolled out a big piece of butcher paper on the driveway and gave them some finger paints*, an old tooth brush, cotton swabs and anything else we could find that would be a good paint brush.
