Go Out and Play | Imagine ToysSaturday, August 30, 2014
We received a KaBOOM! Go Out and Play Essentials Pack for Review.
All silly faces and high fives are completely our own!
Early this month as everyone was preparing to return to school we got a little reminder to spend some time outdoors! This month has been super hot, but a few minutes here and there of outside play times does a world of good for the little ones! Have I ever mentioned how excited Jonah gets when a package comes in the mail? Whether it's toys, clothes or a box of diapers he loves to see what's inside. The day our back pack arrived we happened to have a second two year old in the house who thought the package was equally cool and had a blast trying out what was inside!
Each new thing they pulled out was equally exciting! I really enjoyed looking through the Go Out and Play book. It is jammed backed full of outdoor games. Some I was familiar with, some not, and some I'd forgotten about and wouldn't have remembered the exact rules/how you play. This is so great for a group of kiddos or even just for play at home.
We played with each toy then I decided to modify one of the games for the age of these two little miniature back to pre-pre-schoolers.
They sat in the grass side by side and I sat infront of them. I explained that the rules were simple. I'd through the ball to one of them and when they caught they had to shout out a color then throw the ball back to me and I'd throw it to the other one. Simple, just a few instructions to remember and kept them going for quite a while (even though we got some repeat colors). We stayed out until the setting sun and mosquitoes ran us back in!
What games do you play with your kids outdoors?
