Outdoor Games

(Depending on the season of the year you can rearrange these suggestions to work for you -- see the outdoor games link above.)

Sidewalk Chalk -- just let your toddler have some sidewalk chalk and draw on your sidewalk.  Any pattern or shape he/she would like!

Musical Exploration

Clapping Rhythms -- Clap a pattern and then ask your toddler to try and repeat it.  These should be very, very simple.  Such as 1 clap above you, or behind you, or low to the ground.  Then clap 2 times either fast or slow.  You could clap 3 or more times if you toddler catches on and is having a fun time.


Thula Thula (Zulu--South African) from the African Lullaby CD


Puppet Theatre Show -- Now is the time to have a show with all the puppets you have created this year.  You can set up a theatre behind a chair, or cut one out of a cardboard box.  Have fun!
