Spring and summer – the best time of the year for no-prep, fun and easy outdoor activities for active kids, toddlers and preschoolers. Our little ones had to stay indoors at home this year longer than any other year. So, we all are looking forward to this season! Fun and engaging activities, fresh air and good laugh is what we all need right now!
This is an open list of no-prep, fun and easy outdoor activities for kids ages 2-7. You can do them anywhere – in the park, on the beach, in the backyard. Stay healthy and happy and exercise as much as you can! We all need that.
