It's the best way for the preschool children to cool
off sometimes and have fun for a change outdoors. So as a preschool
teacher, you must find creative ways to treat your students to an
outdoor summer spree.
Many day care centers opt for a swim on a child's pool. However, this
might create a problem, considering these pools may not be safe, and
that you would have to hire a lifeguard on duty to protect these kids.
Since these children are vulnerable to dehydrations and will less likely
to recognize the symptoms. Therefore, you need to plan ahead on an
activity that will keep children cool and hydrated
One day care center that is very famous for doing outdoor activities
during the hot summer is a game called “Splish, Splish, Splash.” This
type of game is similar to “Duck, Duck, Goose.” The only difference is
that it can be played in a smaller scale or in a small group. The
“ducker” has a cup filled with water, and the child holding it must pass
it around on each child and sticks a hand into the cup, dribbles a small
amount of water onto the child’s head. When the ducker reaches the child
that is the “Goose,” he or she unloads the remaining water on that
Another kind of game which is also a favorite among children is the one
that involve water balloons. With this type of game, the teacher must be
prepared to get wet. Everyone may run around freely and with the risk of
getting hurt in a traditional water-balloon fight. However, to make it
more interesting and less risky for the kids, the teacher throws the
water balloon up into the air, and it’s up to the children to catch it.
Here is the catch: once somebody does, he or she can aim it to the
teacher who cannot run away. This creates a fun atmosphere where
children can create a playful bond with the teachers.
When there's a time for a beach day, it's better for the children to
come in with swimsuits and have fun with sprinklers, water balls,
bubbles, beach balls, and more. You may prepare for a special treat
unlike those typical snacks that they are used to. You can contact any
local ice cream truck and visit the place.
These games are nice and refreshing for a change since this gives a
chance for the children to loosen up and run around freely, unlike in a
classroom setting. As long as the children are having fun, you don’t
have to worry about crying kids for a few hours.
