Outdoor Games for Preschoolers

This spring, the boys and I have been spending a lot of time playing in our driveway. The weather has been great and I am happy to be soaking it all up before it becomes too hot to play! Now that Andrew is 3 he is beginning to enjoy structured games, as long as they move quickly and aren't too complicated! Most of the outdoor games we enjoy involve sidewalk chalk or bubbles, so when he lost interest in the ones we had been playing I did a quick Pinterest search and found some fun new games to try!

One activity I've been excited to try for a long time is Sidewalk Painting. Jessica from Prairie Girl to Southern Belle shared her recipe for Sidewalk Paint a few weeks ago and it looks quite simple (I think I'll have more fun with it than Andrew)!

I was happy to find some great Sidewalk Chalk Activities that help with the recognition of letters, numbers and colours...

I think Andrew, and some other neighbourhood kids, will have a ton of fun with these outdoor games this summer. What games do you and your little ones play in the driveway??

  4. I consider you’ve created some genuinely exciting points. Not too most people would in reality consider about this the way you simply did. I’m really impressed that there’s a lot about this topic that’s been uncovered and you also did it so tremendously, with a lot class.
