Fun and Physical Activities for Toddlers and Preschoolers

It’s Spring Break for many in our area! I know some have gone on vacation, while others have stayed local and are enjoying what Central Arkansas has to offer. Also, yesterday was the first of Spring! I don’t know about you guys, but I am so happy and thankful for this season. While I hate the allergies that come with it, I love seeing everything green up, bloom, and of course, finally start to warm up so we can get outside and play!

Four Fun Activities


I’ve been looking for fun activities for my toddler to do in our own home and found some great ideas. I wanted to share them with you so you can take advantage of them during Spring Break, and even the rest of the season. I will also post more fun activities throughout the year that you can do with your kiddos.

  1. Snake in the Grass 
    • You will need a few rubber snakes (or really any small beanbag or toy!)
    •  Have your kids stand on the far side of the yard as you hide the snakes. No peaking! When you yell “snakes in the grass!” they have to run and find them.
    • Side note: if your child is the brave type and this may make them not fearful of real snakes in case they were to chance upon one, you may want to use a different toy! 😉

    An array of female libido enhancement drugs is levitra side effects estrogen-based. This way, you can viagra professional price prevent any adverse effect on your body. That means you should care for your mental, physical, emotional, spiritual and financial health as much as you generic viagra discount can. But don’t cheapest viagra no prescription confuse scams with generic medications.

  2. Outdoor Obstacle Course
    • Use your outdoor objects to create an obstacle course for your child to run through. For example, a tree stump they can jump over, have them crawl under a patio table, hop down a hopscotch court, jump on a trampoline, go down a slide, etc. Have them run through one direction and then back the other way for variety!
    • For a little extra competition, you can time them or have them race their siblings or friends.
    • This is also a great one to wear them out for nap time! 😀
  3. Target Practice
    • Set up empty soda or water bottles on the grass or a table. Have your child throw little beanbags and try to knock them over.
    • So it doesn’t get old, have them try overhand, underhand, or really high up and see if it will land on the bottle.
  4. Balloon Tennis
    • You’ll need a paddle or racquet (you can even just use your hands!) and a balloon or lightweight ball.
    • Use the paddles to bat a balloon back and forth with your child. Count how many times you can go before it hits the ground!
    • You can also see who can bat the balloon in the air the longest!
    • You can even do this with a grocery bag. This was one of my favorite things to do growing up!


These are some fun, simple, and basically, free things to do to burn off some energy. Now go have fun outside!
