KIDS IN THE BACKYARD:


Check this Pinterest Link for some Kids in the Backyard Games to make outdoor time fun!


SIDEWALK CHALK GAMES:


SIMON SAYS:


With chalk draw out a circle with coloured sections (We had seven colours of chalk so that's what we drew).


Player one stands in the center of the "game board".  Someone else is the caller who shouts out a colour.   Player one jumps to that colour and then back to the center.  The caller says the first colour and adds another ("red, yellow").  Player One now jumps to the first color (red), then the next color (yellow) and then back to the center.  Keep adding one color until you have 6-8 in the sequence.The round ends when Player One completes the entire sequence, can no longer remember the pattern, or misses a colour block.  Then it's someone else's turn to jump.




FAMILY WALK:


A short walk aorund the neighbourhood or on a little nature hike will get your legs moving and fill your lungs with fresh air. Make a scavenger hunt out of it to keep kids occupied. 


If the paths are full though, don't go! Social Distancing is the key!


I will try to make a printable soon to post it here!


BACKYARD FUN:


If you have a backyard dig out a ball or two and play catch or kick it to each other.  What other backyard games might you have? Frisbee? Bean bag toss? Or make up your own like kick the can in the front yard, or knock the cans over with a baseball.

Create an obstacle course for your kids and time them to see how long it takes to complete.  Then you time then again to see if they can beat their time!

FAMILY BIKE RIDE:


There is still too much snow where we live but if you are in warmer climes a bike ride keeps you well away from others as you exercise, get fresh air and see the beauty of nature around you.  Review Bike Safety with the family before you head out.
