Playgrounds and backyard swings are great outdoor activities for While they can simply run around, up and over the structure, swing on swings and slide down the slide, they can also create their own innovative, open activities. My daughters (10 and 1 years old) invited a friend to play last week and spent the whole day in the “shrub cubicle” they created somewhere in the reserve next to our house. I have no idea where the locker is, what it looks like, or even what it's for, but they like it to be there and that's all that matters. So I give you this list of outdoor activities for older children.
It really is a list for an 11-year-old girl who had such a good day out last week that she begged to come back tomorrow. Playing outside is not only fun and helps burn energy, but it also improves a child's physical, mental and emotional well-being. Looking for great ideas and easy activities for kids?
