unschooling in nyc
chalk on the sidewalk
hide & seek
cars & trucks (really, you can just bring any of his favorite toys)
collect pebbles, sticks, etc.
Good ideas so far. Also, what about:
-hula hoop (at this age, mainly for putting on the ground and stepping/hopping in or out)
-jump rope? (also for use on the ground, and obviously with supervision)
-frisbee, or better yet, aerobie or other disc with a hole for easier catching
-peek-a-boo hiding behind trees
-maybe a simple ring-toss game with bing bags?
-look for bugs, squirrels, birds, etc. to watch
-do silly "creative movement" type stuff together-- "can you jump? dance? stand on one foot?" etc.
Just hunting for stuff, beautiful rocks, leaves, etc. ... wandering around. I used to follow my kids through parks and on trails in botanical gardens for hours... happily wandering....
Making leaf boats to float in puddles... digging holes, making collections of pine cones, etc......
