If it’s a nice sunny day out, why would you want the kids to be locked up inside (and give them the opportunity to want to be on their phones)? With dozens and dozens of outdoor activities for the kids to do outside – some costing, others free – you can provide sufficient entertainment for your wee ones regardless of their ages.
If your kids are under the age of 5, it’s time for you to put your thinking cap on and come up with something for them to do. If they’re over the age of 5, it’s encouraged that you get their input. Involving them in the decision making allows them to get their thinking caps on and use their own creativity.
Outdoor activity ideas
Playground – what kids don’t love to swing on the monkey bars and go spiraling down the slide? The playground is one of the most common and popular outdoor activities for kids of all ages. Keep in mind that the younger ones will definitely require some sort of adult supervision. Take a look at local playgrounds in your area to see which is the closest to you.
Swimming pool/water park – depending on where you live, you can take advantage of a local swimming pool or water park in your area. This kind of activity can provide entertainment for an entire day, and it keeps the kids active and busy. Check out these top 6 water parks in Melbourne.
Sports – there are so many sports that your kids can play, that are absolutely free – all you need is the right environmental and sporting equipment. Ask the kids what their favourite sport to play is – cricket? Netball? Basketball? Soccer? If you live near a local park, there is an endless list of sports you can play there. If you need the equipment to get started, take a look at this sports equipment supply website.
