Last year we began 2016 by moving to a house that’s on 12 acres. We did so mostly because we wanted our boy to grow with freedom to roam and learn outside. Even, if we didn’t have all this land we would still be outside players because we love fresh air so much! Here are a few ideas if you’re looking for some fun outside play.
Digging for bones. Paleontology has been the preferred learning topic over here for about a month. To play grab a shovel or a spoon and be armed with a little info about dinosaurs and you’re good to go!
Expedition. We’ve been to Antarctica, South America, China all from our yard. Just be armed with a few facts like native animals. (Tip, this game pairs very well with Little Passport’s)
History Explorer. Go back into ancient times with a walk around your yard. Look, you can see the pyramid from here!
What lives here? Look for bird’s nest or an animal habitat and ask, “What lives here?”
All of this is free and easy. Trust me that your child won’t forget these lessons. We make sure it’s child led too. I don’t control were we go on Expedition, I just suggest the game. He usually likes Antarctica.
Comment with your favorite outside games! I would love to hear feedback.
