Get The Kids Outside!

These days it’s so easy to just let the kids stay inside all day watching TV or playing games on a tablet. It’s almost summer and that means fun in the sun, soaking up some Vitamin D! Check out these fun ways to get your kids to go outside, stay active, and have fun!

Squirt Gun Water Races:
Poke a hole in the bottom of a plastic cup and thread string through it. Then, tie each end of the string on a tree, post, chair, whatever you have around. Do two of these side by side to set up the race. On “GO!” the kids have to shoot water from a water gun into the cup to move it. First one to get it from one end to the other wins.

Bubble Snakes:
Take an old water bottle and cut off the bottom. Grab a sock—if you have any mismatched pairs of socks, those would be ideal. Slide it over the water bottle, stretching it all the way to the top, and then fold it back to keep it snug on the bottle. In a small container, mix together dish soap with a small amount of water and mix until you have a good bubble consistency. Then, dip the end of the sock in the bubble solution and blow into the bottle to create fun looking bubble snakes.

Spray Chalk:
Let your kids make outdoor art with spray chalk. Collect some spray bottles. Ad 1/3 cup cornstarch to each bottle, then fill the reminder of the bottle with water. Squirt in a generous amount of food coloring into each bottle to create a variety of colors. Then let the kids have some fun on the driveway and on the sidewalk creating their masterpieces.

While the kids are outside, you can enjoy a clean house inside thanks to The Cleaning Authority. Visit The Cleaning Authority today for a free estimate.
