71: 5 Fun Outdoor Therapy Activities for Summer

This week I'm sharing some of my favorite summer activities for outdoor therapy sessions with kids. Check out the links below and you can do them, too!

  1. Make giant bubble wands for giant bubbles.
  2. Make toy boats using recyclables. I recommend corks, rubber bands, large paper clips, sturdy toothpicks, popsicle sticks, duct tape, and small plastic containers. Bring stickers or sharpie markers to allow the children to decorate their creations. (Can pair with the book Toy Boat, too.)
  3. Make a mud kitchen using kitchen supplies from thrift stores. Play the Great Nature Baking Show game.
  4. Balloon ball volleyball game
  5. Make ice cream in the ice cream ball
