Outdoor Learning Activity for Toddlers

Big brother Ethan is still feverish hence he skipped school again today. In the evening, the weather was very beautiful; sunny and windy so I brought them to the playground for some fresh air and sunshine.  After spending about half an hour playing on the playground equipments, I introduced a simple color learning activity for Ayden. It is always fun to learn outdoors as the resources are endless.

For today’s activity, I suggested for the boys to collect used grass cutter line blades.

Excitedly they went collecting as many line blades as possible.

Big brother Ethan collected many line blades and gave them to Ayden.

Next, I encouraged Ayden to put those line blades into the holes. Soon they ran out of line blades and went looking for more.

They found a rare ORANGE line blade. They both got very excited with that single orange line blade. That is when the colour learning process took place. Ethan taught Ayden the colours of those line blades.

After learning colours, I brought Ayden down to see what it is like under where he was standing previously.

Ethan pulled those line blades up and down getting Ayden excited to see all those movements.

One learning activity accomplished today. It is always fun to go to the playground. There’s so much to see and learn here :)
