Take a 2 liter soda bottle, poke holes in it. Attach to a garden hose. Toss over a tree branch and let hang for a kids water sprinkler. You can loop it over a tree branch and let kids bat it around for more watery fun!
When children play outside, we need to understand that they are actually learning. They observe, plan and nurture, giving play a scientific touch. Play is really the best work of childhood. Getting dirty benefits thier heart, skin and immune system.
Outdoor tic tac toe using stone tiles and rocks. I would make a small garden for the kids and have this in it. Cute decor when the kids aren't playing with it. Great for when the mom is at work and the kids want to play
