Beat the Heat with Water!

Summer is officially here. The temperature is high and the sun is always up.

Here are a few good ways to get the kids outside while staying cool.

Water is fun!

Bring out the spray bottle, eye droppers, turkey baster, and squirt guns!

Set up a car wash with toy cars, or the real thing.

Draw all over the pavement with chalk, then wash it off with one of your favorite water toys.

Freeze washable paint and water together in ice cube trays to create ice cube paint. Use it to draw on paper or the pavement.
Find or make a water table for buckets of splashing fun!

All of these activities incorporate fine motor strengthening and coordination, and visual motor integration components. 

Play alone or bring a friend, these fun activities can encourage cooperative social play skills

ALWAYS remember to stay safe with....
  • Sunscreen
  • Sunglasses
  • Hat to cover the head and face
  • Lots and lots of water for hydration
