Now that Summer is fully upon us!!!! Let’s have some fun with our Toddlers!! Make sure to check out your local groups and Facebook pages to see what fun summer events your city is holding!! Ours has these fun Picnic Outdoor Movie Nights where they play Disney movies every Friday night! Barnes && Noble has Story Time for littles on Saturday mornings!! Just ask around!! However, these are all fun ideas I’ve found on Pinterest to do at home with your Toddlers this summer!! (Click on the photos to be taken to the direct link!! I’m all about giving credit where it’s due!! Supporting other Mama’s with great ideas!!! I’m just putting them all in one place for you!!) None of this includes Technology!! Win-Win!!
Blow Up Balloons! All different sizes! Let them run wild with them!!! Show them how to bounce them, kick them or even play balloon tennis! Try putting a Pool Noodle between two chairs and play Balloon Volleyball! I put Penelope in her crib and filled it with balloons and she laughed so hard throwing them out of the crib and just playing with them! They are so light that they can’t break much! 😉 (Supervise them so they don’t bite, pop, and possibly inhale the balloon!!!!!)
Have a Color Scavenger Hunt!! They can find anything in the house or yard that matches the colors you provide!
Or have a Regular Scavenger Hunt!
Muddy Trucks & then a Car Wash!! Let them get messy! What kid doesn’t love that!! && Then make a car wash to get them to clean everything up, including themselves!!!
Make Paper Airplanes && Try to get them through the holes for points!!
Perfect for those hot days!! Water Balloon Piñata!!
Who doesn’t love a Nerf Gun Target Game!? You could set up soda cans outside too! Any light item would be perfect as a target!!
Make even breakfast fun over the summer! Have the kids work for their donuts for breakfast!!!
Time to get the chalk out! Make some fun activities to keep them active outside!!
Have them find rocks and paint them to play Tic Tac Toe! Find sticks to make the # board too!
Help them build a Lemonade Stand, make some lemonade and see if they can make any money! Go get some Ice Cream with the money they make!!
Here is a great Team Building Game && a way to beat the heat!!! If the kids have friends over see what team can keep the most water by the last person!
Keep their brains going this summer! Set rewards after every 25 books or an even bigger prize after 50 books! Love this chart as a visual for them!!
Get lots of use out of the blow up pool! Whether during the day for a picnic or at night to star gaze!!!
Have a Water Gun Fight!!! Don’t forget a quick relief station!!
Make Ice Cream in a Bag!!! The kids toss the bag around, make it a game and then they get a snack!
Who doesn’t love Bowling!?
Make Colored Ice the night before and then let them Paint outside with their Ice!!
Target Practice with Colored Water Guns!!
