We did lots of activities to keep us busy. Some of us dug really big holes in the sandbox. They used their big muscles to scoop the sand out with shovels.
"Look how strong I am, I use my feet to push the sand"
"Look how deep my hole is, I can see the bottom."
One child used an excavator to dig a hole in the sand.
The girls used their gross motor skills to jump rope. They each had a turn trying to jump over the rope as it was going round and round. Then they decided that was a little tricky so they moved the rope back and forth on the ground like a snake, and one at a time they tried to jump across.
This child experimented with a ball and a puddle. He made sure no one was close by and then dropped the ball in the puddle. When the ball hit the puddle the muddy water splashed up in the air.
Rain or shine we encourage the children to get outside and enjoy what nature has to offer.
