As promised, here is another list of things you can do, outside; even with all the restrictions we have going on right now.
BONUS: one more FREE scavenger hunt for the kiddos.
HIKING SCAVENGER HUNT – last week I mentioned going for a hike. Here is a list the kids can use to keep them busy while enjoying some much needed fresh air.
NEIGHBORHOOD WALKS – this is a really nice and easy way to get out of the house. But also for the kids to run into some of their classmates. Even with all of the online resources available, they really love to say hi to their friends in person. They miss them so much. Their moods change with a simple wave. Don’t underestimate the power this has on your kids and you.
FISHING – this may not be for everyone but it could be a new hobby for a some. Drive around and find a pond with catch and release options and try something new. I grew up with 2 sisters and we loved going fishing with my dad when we were kids. We rarely ever did any fishing on our own but the time we spent together, the talks and fun we had when he actually did catch a fish, will last us a lifetime. Hopefully we can do the same thing for our kids.
DECORATE A SIDEWALK – you would be surprised how much work it takes to decorate one sidewalk or driveway. WOW my legs still hurt! Get the family together and write some positive messages for everyone that walks by. Make a game out of it and watch your neighbors play hopscotch or follow your maze when they pass by. It’s actually very rewarding and fun. It gets you out of the house and makes someone else smile too.
That’s it for today. I will try to come up with a few more things for us to do next weekend. Plus more scavenger hunts. Let me know what you want to see next.
