Want three quick ways to keep the little ones cool, entertained, and in the Olympic spirit?
All you need is:
- Water filled balloons
- Side walk chalk
Munchkins must try to walk a short distance, holding the water balloons between their knees. This is so fun to watch and a big challenge for them.
Draw the Olympic rings on your driveway or sidewalk. We talked about what they mean, but I am pretty sure this went right over their heads. The foundation is laid for later Eureka moments. Call out a color and have the munchkins toss their water balloons into the appropriate colored ring.
STOMP FEST – the munchkins came up with this one on their own.
At the end of your games, stomp the balloons! Bathing suits required!
WHAT YOUR CHILDREN GET OUT OF IT: gross motor skill development, color recognition practice, hand-eye coordination and plenty of fun!
Prizes from $1 prize bucket followed which made them soooo happy, which has me rethinking what is spent at the holidays 🙂
