You should really check out this site, www.andycamper.com it has tones of great activities and ideas to get kids outside. Great site.
RELAY RACES! Come up with your own obstacles! egg race, water balloon fights. I saw one on t.v. years ago where they took a cheap kids pool and filled it with ice and the kids sit around the outside of it bare footed and each had there own bucket they had to fill (just using there feet) set a time limit and see who can get the most ice in there bucket!
I need messy stuff, I know what you are thinking, She's probably wierd, but i LOVE crazy and messy!
Yes i have had the same problem. In the past i have found that jewelry making with beads and clay model making have been practical in an outdoor setting. Painting and cutting and pasting can be a bit tragic when you have no access to water or the weather turns windy. But still worth doing occasionally. Making collage pictures with fabric would work as the wind would not blow the material away as easily as paper.
Hi. Go to www.familyfun.com They have TONS of craft ideas. You can just do a search for outdoor crafts or maybe try messy crafts, etc. They have some really cute ideas!
How about collecting rocks and painting different things on them like animals, flowers, strawberries, etc. Also collecting wildflowers and doing flower pounding to make cards, pictures on t-shirts or to frame.
