BACK YARD activities, to be OUTDOOR brings FUN!

With the spring the sun shines brighter, birds sing louder, flowers blossom, life seems to be more energetic and you want to sing from all of this. Karolina is so happy when we are outside. Apart from the time which she spends on her favourite trampoline, or when she gives water to the flowers, she comes to me with question: "Mama, what will we play today?" And she waits for my "Well..."
So, when I am still powerful, we can play with her a football. You know, womens football with our womens rules is FUN-). A tree is kinda gates...You can kick the ball or hit with your hand-)))
She loves "Hide-and-Sick". And it doesnt matter if the mum sees her standing by the next tree. Mum must look for her for about 5 minutes pretending she cannot find Karolina, although Karolina gives mum signals abt herself like an owl or cuckoo,lol.
We paint with colourful chalks, or I teach her to a hopscotch. Thats a good training for big motor skills as well.
We have several hoops of different colours. So, we play "Where is...a red hoop" game. She must close her eyes, and I must hide all hoops after what she is looking for them. The most interesting is when Karolina  must hide the hoops...she does it in the same places like me-))) But I'm trying to find them of course everywhere in the garden...
A racket-ball game takes a place from time to time in our entertainment. The thing is that mostly my task is to catch the ball in order it doesnt fly to our neighbours-)
ABC search (First letter- word match game) makes Karolina very excited too. We have wooden puzzle letters, and I hide some letters which we learn with my girl at the moment and put them on the objects the names of which start from this or that very letter. "W"-water: the letter W was laying over the pipe/tun where we take water for plants. Or "G" for "grass",etc. The funniest was "P" on papa's shoe, who had to stand still till Karolina sees the letter,lol. Thank you, papa, for your patience-)
Outdoor activities include a great teaching element. Thats not just the time for hanging around, which is also good by the way-)))Childhood is the time of having fun and at the same time learning from all what a child does. That's why we hope this summer will be enough warm and sunny that we could spend all days outside and do our "hanging around/learning" stuff-)
And what is your favourite outdoor acitivity? Will be very glad to read about it-)
