Gather a number of items for the story teller to use. The child who is chosen as the teller must use all the items during story time. This is also fun for the reverse; have the kids pick out a pre-determined number of items and YOU the parent, or YOU the teacher, have to come up with a story using all of the items! Truly is fun for all!
If you’re kids not much of a splash in the kiddie pool kind of person.. fill it with dirt, plastic and rubber bugs and snakes and lots of safe tools to dig. FUN! (Also a great use for a compromised pool that doesn’t exactly hold water – but would hold lots of fun dirt!)
You’ll need 2 dice, paper for scoring and a large OR small group!
Whether you have a pool or just a backyard – this is a fun activity on a hot day!
