My son is a little obsessed with the hose. Maybe it’s that he loves firetrucks, or that he sees his dad using it or maybe it’s just because kids are attracted to water like bees to honey! This game got created because my son refused a nap. It was hot, I was cranky so we went outside. I didn’t stay cranky long, we had a blast. Learning outside is the best!
- Gather your materials. You will need a garden hose ( or squirt bottles) , some sidewalk chalk and a future sharp shooter to play. Don’t forget your sunscreen either!
- Start by Drawing letters on your fence ( or patio) I asked my son which letters he wanted .
- Hand then the hose and call out the letters.
- After the letters we moved to another piece of fence and did shapes!
The sky is really the limit, you can use numbers, sight words for older kids, colors for younger… have fun !
