Western Party Games

Posted by Cristina Valencia on

  I've been working on the railroad A large grassy or carpeted area is needed. Divide children into two teams. They must build a railroad connection to the "gold mine" in the middle of the area, starting from their side of the room. The children become the tracks. One child lies down with feet and arms extended and together. The next child crawls over the first and with the first child holding his feet, extends the tracks further, etc. However each railroad must have two "curves", a "trestle" (child on elbows and knees), and a "switch back" (three children forming...

Picnic with a Twist Who says you have to have the same type of outdoor BB-Q or picnic. I’ve got a new twist to the old fashioned picnic; this will bring a fun and unique way to your outdoor picnics.   Fix a nice lunch that is healthy yet fun such as a peanut butter sandwich, Jell-O cups, a piece of fruit, some carrot sticks and place them in a brown paper bag.

Getting bored and tired of the same old summer outdoor activities? Well I have two suggestions to one of the oldest games around; “THE RELAY RACE”.

Make sure you have two of each. Gather your crew together and break up in two teams. Set all the items in a basket, box, recycling bin whatever is easiest and available down at...

Educational Summer Activities for Toddlers

Posted by Cristina Valencia on

Summer is the best season to let your toddlers explore their environment. Make the most out of the nice weather: go outside and introduce your little lad to the world outdoors he has yet to discover.   Toddlers are very active and I’m sure going outside will be the best part of the day. Just be sure to always watch over them because these little fellows love to discover things. They tend to run over places without looking around, and they pick things that might be dangerous for them like insects or sharp objects, or small things that they might...
