Let's talk about PLAY!
There's no doubt that parents have been trying to figure out ways to keep their children busy over the last couple of months during the COVID-19 quarantine. In the midst of tackling "school at home", make sure to add just as much playtime (if not more) into your day! Check out this article from the Official Journal of American Academy of Pediatrics about why playtime is so important to the well-being of our kids and youth.
Of course, make sure to practice your instrument and acting skills each day, but if you need some creative inspiration, our friends over at No Time for Flashcards have you covered! They came up with an awesome list of ideas for outdoor play.
Here's our Top 5 Favorite Picks:
1. Melt Crayons in the Sun
2. Paint like Jackson Pollock
3. Flower Painting
4. Go on a sound safari
5. Play Angry Birds with Water Balloons
There you have it - fun for hours! Make sure to send tag us @lantiperformingarts if you try one (or all) of these outdoor play ideas!
