If the kids are tired and and bored of watching TV then we may just have the answer!
Each week you will find fun things to occupy the kids right here at YorkMix.

 

 

 

Water play

You can do this inside or outside, but be sure you are supervising any water play, even if there are only a few inches in the container.

What to do:

1. Fill a large plastic bowl or tire tube lined with plastic

2. Sail a boat made out of paper or a coconut shell for pirate fun!

3. Find things that sink and that float – this is a little science experiment

4. Use a feather, a cork, a stone, an acorn, a leaf, rubber ball, and anything else your child finds

5. Ask before she drops it into the water whether it will sink or float

6. Ask why it sinks and why it floats

Dirty Diggers

What you need:

Use any area outside such as a garden, the sandbox in your local park, or an open field which has dirt for digging
Dirt, shovels, small rakes, buckets and a little water to make mud can be fun!

What to do:

Kids can play construction, buried treasure, farmer, make mud pies, make tunnels and roadways for miniature cars and trucks
Twigs and small stones can be used for hauling, or for decorating.

Safety warnings:

Ensure children do not play with dirt that may have been contaminated by animals. Ensure that children do not put dirt or dirty hands in their mouths. Potting mix is dangerous as it contains a potentially harmful bacteria, do not use. Ensure any cuts are covered. Wash hands afterwards.
