With another winter almost behind us, signs of spring abound. And with this change in season comes prolonged outdoor play. In this installment of crafty ideas from the educators at Good Morning Creative Arts Preschool, we offer a few suggestions of activities to do with the children as well as shine a spotlight on our summer camp programming. First, a few fun ideas for the young and young at heart.

Follow the Tape Obstacle Course

What you need: masking tape or sidewalk chalk.

Instructions: Place the tape on the floor in different shapes and lines. You must follow the lines as they are and when you hit a certain shape, you do an assigned task, such as 10 jumping jacks, spin around three times, hop from shape to shape. The kids can help you create the rules and layout!

Spring Song!
(to the tune of “Farmer in the Dell”)

The sun is shining bright
The sun is shining bright
Oh, how I love the warmth
The sun is shining bright.
The rain is falling down
The rain is falling down
Oh, how I love the sound
The rain is falling down.
