There are so many options for outdoor fun for children! The possibilities are endless when it comes to outdoor activities for preschoolers. Check out some of my favorites below!
As always, thanks for linking up at Stress-Free Sunday! So many great ideas were shared at last week’s link-up! Today I’m excited to feature those focused on outdoor fun for children.
Engineer and I are thinking of creating our own versions of KC Edventure’s “Create an Outdoor Activity Jar that Rocks”.
Train Up a Child’s “Gross Motor Balloon Games” are definitely on our summer to-do list!
I love Like Mama ~ Like Daughter’s “Creative Kids” post about letting children have free time to create outdoors.
Engineer and I are already planning to create a “Beach Themed Sensory Bin” inspired by Buggy & Buddy.
Sorting Sprinkles’ “Spring for Preschoolers” has some wonderful ideas for teaching children about spring and the outdoors!
Here are some outdoor fun ideas from Fun-A-Day as well:
- Windy Day Science Activity (a guest post on B-Inspired Mama)
- A Muddy Day Outside
- Snow Building Blocks
- Playing in the Rain
- Chalk & Water

Preschool Gardening and Outdoor Tools
One of the most important things we can allow young children to explore, in my opinion, is the great outdoors. Whether that means letting the children explore the woods by the preschool, the mulch around the playground, the field of grass outside, or the school garden, the children will get so much out of exploring natural things.
With that in mind, I’ve created a list of some great items to keep on hand for your class of little outdoors people. Some of them are on the pricier side, but they can be used for years to come! Check out the list below.
