The temperature’s rising, school’s out, and all your kids want to do is sit inside and play. Make the next warm summer day more fun than ever with games, toys, and activities they can’t really do indoors. From activities to get their bodies moving to those that will cool kiddos off with splashes of water, we’ve come up with some activities that will have them begging to head outside this summer.
Play Car Wash
A car wash is probably one of the few chores that can be turned into playtime. Get out the buckets, rags, and bubbles, and let them have fun with it. Reward them for their hard work with a few bucks or a trip to the candy store!
Make a Sundae Bar
Kick the kids’ sweet tooth into high gear with an ice cream sundae bar. Make a few flavors of ice cream with the KitchenAid 2-Quart Ice Cream Maker Stand Mixer Attachment. Then let them add their favorite toppings, like cookies, gummy bears, and sprinkles of course!
Create an Outdoor Science Lab
Science is fun but messy. So bring the lab outside in the summer and let kids mix and spill to their hearts’ content! Create an outdoor science lab with everything kids need to start experimenting complete with telescopes, microscopes, beakers, test tubes, food coloring, and a ground ready to soak up the spills!
Make a Giant Outdoor Kerplunk Game
Who doesn’t love a game of Kerplunk? Head outside and make a giant version of the game out of tomato cages. Better yet, fill it with water balloons for some fun play.
Have a Campfire
Some of the best summer memories can be made around a campfire. Let the kids roast everything from veggies to s’mores around your Firepit. After everyone is fed and full, tell stories and share in some good laughs.
Set Up an Obstacle Course
Get the kids into a competitive spirit with an obstacle course. Use objects you already own like ropes, tubes, and beams. You can create a backyard course that tests their agility and will keep them entertained for hours.
Create a Riding Obstacle Course
Set up orange cones for the kids to practice their Razor Scooter skills. Award them points for accuracy, not speed.
Summer Dance Party
This is easy to put together because the kids make their own fun! Simply hook up your Sony Portable Wireless Bluetooth Speaker from Buydig.com and they’ll be dancing it up in the backyard!
With this list, you will be able to get your kids out from in front of the TV and outdoors this summer.
