In this article by CBC Parents, the ultimate play bucket list is filled with experiences that every child should have before their teenage years. From paddling a canoe to building a fort, children are challenged with 24 ways to play, rain or shine.
Some of our favourites are:
#2 – Skip stones across water
#4 – Hang upside down from a tree limb
#19 – Jump in a pile of leaves
#24 – Make up a game involving a ball
And here are five more ideas to add to the list that are both fun and help kids develop physical literacy:
- Organize a game of street hockey with the neighbours
- Rollerblade around the block
- Play a classic (or modified) game of tag
- Launch off a swing onto the playground
- Bowl a strike
With summer holidays just around the corner, what will your kids be checking off their bucket list?
