With the new school year right around the corner, your preschooler may be feeling restless at home and eager to get back into a routine. If you’re looking for a few activities to turn the last few weeks of summer into a month of fun, we’ve got you covered. Check out these boredom-busting ideas:
This activity is sure to keep you cool in the midst of the summer heat. With a long plastic tarp, garden stakes, and baby shampoo (or baby oil), you can transform your backyard into a water park featuring a slip ‘n’ slide! Don’t forget to apply sunscreen!
Sidewalk Chalk Pictionary
This twist on Pictionary is tons of fun. All you need is a bucket of sidewalk chalk and your imagination! Get the family together and head to the driveway to play an exciting game of Pictionary. Each player gets a turn drawing the picture of his choice (without telling the other players what he’s creating). Whoever can guess what is being drawn the fastest is the big winner!
Water Hose Limbo
Water hose limbo is the perfect way to cool down on a hot summer day while having a blast! Simply place your thumb over the hose spout or use a hose nozzle to get a stream going. Each child must try to pass under the stream of water while leaning back. If they get wet, they are eliminated! Lower the hose little by little every time someone passes successfully. The final winner is the player who passes successfully under the lowest stream without getting wet.
Take full advantage of the last few weeks of fun by trying one of these summertime games. Your little one may be feeling antsy at home, but once you try one of these fun activities, they won’t want summer to end!
