PAINTING THE DECK OR DRIVEWAY:
Need: sponge paint brush
pail with a handle
Fill the pail with water and show your child how water paints the deck, chair, or tree. Talk about how some things change color and some do not. You can also put colored construction paper taped down on a cookie sheet with a lip if you want to do the same thing inside on a rainy day without any mess.
Need: foam pool noodles
beach ball or other light weight ball
Put a few simple obstacles out or just use flower beds or pots as obstacles. Have your child hit the ball with the noodle around the obstacle or just hit it to the other side of the yard. If the noodle is too long for the child just cut it in half. This is one you can do with your 2 or 3 year old as well as your older children.
Enjoy fun with those babies while they still want you to. As a mom of young adults, believe me when I say THAT time comes much too soon! You may have regrets in life, but spending fun time with them when they're little won't be one of them.
