32 Outdoor Activities to Do with Kids
When it rains, it pours, but that won't keep the kids indoors. In fact, it takes a hail storm, a tornado, or a hurricane for kids to consider entering their bleak, boring houses. Of course, if you have crafts set up, it can be a blast inside. Still, that won't stop the kids from wanting to be outside any chance they get. Kiddos have so much fun digging in the dirt, playing lava monster on playground equipment, and running and ducking as they play tag. For more organized fun, though, AllFreeKidsCrafts has collected the best outdoor activities to do with kids. With a set activity, the kids are more likely to stay smart and stay safe. Dig into this list of 32 Outdoor Activities to Do with Kids and soon you'll be begging to go outside too.
Whether the sun is shining or the snow is quickly rushing down, there are wonderful and fun outdoor activities that will keep the kids happy and busy. If it's cold out, bundle up and partake in an Icy Treasure Hunt. As the weather begins to warm, ride through your neighborhood in style with the Kid-Made Go Kart. The cool breeze it lends you will feel just perfect against the spring air. If it's warm outside, the opportunities are endless. There are activities, kids' outdoor games, and crafts galore that are sure to keep you smiling through the long, hot days of summer. Keep cool with Spongeball Splashpants or build a faux sandcastle that won't get washed away. If the leaves are beginning to turn yellow and the temperature calls for sweatshirts and jeans, you know that it's the perfect time for leaf rubbings. There is no better specimen than a red, autumn leaf. Every season just begs for the perfect crafts and outdoor activities for kids.
