Using natural materials found outside to create mandalas is a lovely way to work collaboratively, build numeracy and patterning skills, and create a stunning piece of eco-artwork. Another creative outdoor activities with loose parts
Come Together Kids: Mini Marshmallow Shooters (or Pom Pom Poppers) put a balloon over the top half of a stiff plastic cup, with the bottom of the cup removed. Pull of the balloon tie with the pompom inside, and POP!
This Blows! Using a straw, see who can blow a series of plastic cups off the end of the table first. Another spin on this game is to use the air from a balloon instead of a straw to move the cup – this makes it much more challenging!
