Fun summer time activities and games From Darcy Cole Meeker County 4-H Program Coordinator At this point in the summer, your child may have a lot of extra time and energy for play and activ- ities. To prevent summer boredom, keep little hands and minds busy with a variety of fun and interest- ing activities. Here are some sug- gestions of summer activities that your child might enjoy. Make a Mr. Green Grass Have your child draw a face on a plain paper or Styrofoam cup. Fill the cup two-thirds full with soil and add enough water to make the soil wet. Generously sprin- kle grass seed on top of the soil and cover the seeds with another thin layer of soil. Place the cup by a sunny window and wait for Mr. Green Grass's hair (the grass) to grow. Magic paint For outdoor fun, take old paint brushes and coffee cans filled with water out to the play area. Let your child paint on the cement sidewalks, porches, or walls with their magic paint (water). Plan a scavenger hunt This can be an inside or an out- side game. Make up a list of fun items you want your child to find such as a small rock, a bird feather, a twig, etc. If your child cannot read, draw pictures of the items and write the name underneath them. Go over the list so the child understands what to look for and where to look. Give your child a small bag or basket to put the col- lected treasures in. Be sure to plan a special treat or surprise for when the hunt is over. Enjoy cloud watching together On a nice sunny day when the sky is full of beautiful, fluffy, white clouds, lie down with your child on the ground and gaze up at the sky. Together imagine they are ani- mals, creatures, people or mon- sters. Have fun as you try to decide what the clouds look like. Make a teepee Give your child an old sheet which can be colorfully decorated with markers, fabric crayons or fabric paint. Let the sheet dry and then drape it over a card table for an instant teepee. Blowing big bubbles Blowing bubbles can be a great source of self amusement. Shape a large homemade wand from a wire coat hanger, making sure to wind any stray ends around the main wire and to bind any sharp points with electrical or duct tape. Have your child dip the wand in a large container filled with bubble soap (recipe provided below) and wave in the air to make big bub- bles. Plastic flyswatters with holes can also be used as bubble wands. Bubble recipe: Mix 1 cup of dish detergent dishwashing liq- uid, 8 cups water and I cup of corn syrup. The bubble solution keeps well. Store the unused portion in a closed container. Chalk drawing Provide a variety of colored sidewalk chalk and allow your children to express their creativ- ity by drawing on the driveway, sidewalk or concrete patio. Be sure to take a look at and compli- ment the masterpieces designed by the young artist. Either you can wait for the rain to wash the chalk away or you can provide a water hose or a pail of water for clean up. On a warm day, cleaning up with a water hose may be just as much fun as drawing! Create colorful windsocks For each windsock, cut a 2 x 16 inch strip of heavy paper or poster board. Glue long 1-inch wide strips of fabric or ribbon along the lower edge of the paper. Staple the ends of the paper or poster board strip together to form a circle. Punch a small hole on each side of the cir- cle and attach a piece of yarn or string through it and tie. This is what you will hang the windsock with. Hang the windsock outdoors and watch it dance in the wind. Straw painting Provide a piece of construction paper with a small blob of watered down tempera paint placed in the middle. Give your child a plastic drinking straw (may be cut in half to make shorter). Instruct them to blow through the straw and move the paint around to make a design. You may add more colors of paint if the child wants. Making paper hats Place two pages from a news- paper on top of the child's head (criss-cross the pages). Press the paper down around the top of the child's head to form the top of the hat. Have the child or someone else hold the paper in place while you put a strip of masking tape around the formed hat just above the child's ears. Now let your child be creative and roll or fold the edges to form a fancy or funny hat. You may need to secure the rolled edges with tape. The hat can also be painted and a feather or bright colored ribbon can be added for a decorative touch. Items that might spark interest Put together a collection of items that will spark your child's interest and creativity. Some items might include: prisms, magnets of different sizes, rulers, yardsticks, tape measures, thermometers, scales, kaleidoscopes, flashlights, magnifying glasses, measuring spoons and cups, an old clock, construction paper, scissors, glue, washable markers, modeling clay, and cookie cutters. Check with your local library for books and other resources on summer activities for children. The library may also offer special summer programs for school age children. These are just a few activities to keep your children's minds and bodies active. Try working on proj- ects together to create even more fun and wonderful memories.
