SSS SUMMER – SLIP, SLOP, SLAP!
SLIP on a shirt, SLOP on some sunscreen, SLAP on a hat!
The sun is good for flowers and trees
But too much sun
Is not good for me!
Beat the Heat Summer Ideas…
-Freeze small toys or objects (their own or purchased) in blocks of ice and let children melt/break open to find a surprise inside.
-Catch water from the sprinkler in a cup….try to fill up your cup
-Play wet ‘sponge toss’
-Ball toss into a bucket of water–splish, splash!
-Wash the car
-Wash the dog
-Wash the fence
-Spray bottles for watering plants and all other items in the yard
-‘Paint’ with water on the sidewalk
-Play ‘hose jump’ and ‘hose limbo’
-Eat your meals outside in the shade….no kitchen mess!
-Make mini-kites or pinwheels and fly them in the airstream of a fan
-‘Bob’ for apples or other summer fruit (not just for Halloween)
-Freeze fruit and eat as a fruitsicle
-Build outdoor forts with sheets and the clothesline or…..
-Stack and build with ice cubes and salt
-Use nerf balls as ‘easy to fill water balloons’
-Again, spray bottles
-Enjoy your neighbors
-Make ice cream
And on and on…….it takes great energy and creativity to play all day with sticks, boards, dirt and water. Children can do this VERY well!
