The reality is, your children never have a chance of getting to the NFL on their own. They need your support and their coaches, so I’ve put together something like a bit of a guide you can use to help keep your other less interested children entertained on training sessions. Or even yourself.
They’re just ideas, perhaps you think others would be better? Let us know in the comments.
Whether you’re looking for activities for your whole family or just something that you can do by yourself without any running involved, there are hundreds of options available depending on what you want to do. For example, if your child is in a wheelchair and you need to plan an outdoor activity that will work for everyone, selecting an activity based on your child’s restrictions is something that you will need to keep in mind.
The following activities are just a few of the many existing outdoor activities that will be fun for everyone, or just yourself, that do not require any running whatsoever.
This timeless schoolyard activity is a game that is perfect for the whole family, but depends on the amount of people available to play, as the game requires four people unless you will all take turns playing. If you do not have a four square court, you can make it by drawing a large square that is divided into an additional square with four smaller sections.
Players stand in the individual squares and bounce the ball between each other. The goal is to bounce the ball into another player’s square before they are able to catch it. If the player does not catch the ball before it bounces, they are eliminated from the game.
If you are looking for a new hobby that pairs as an outdoor activity, then metal detecting is perfect for you. Metal detecting is an outdoor activity that you can do anywhere, such as the beach or the park, for example, and you can go at whatever pace you choose.
Metal detecting requires a detector and some practice, but after you get used to how your individual detector works, and the methods that are used to properly detect, you will find just how fun and easy metal detecting really is.
Outdoor Activities for Small Children
If you’re looking to entertain your smaller children, which include babies and toddlers, selecting an outdoor activity can be quite a challenge for these particular age groups, especially if your child is no more than a year old.
The following listed below are outdoor activities perfectly suited for babies and toddlers that do not require running:
- Filling a small pool with water and letting your child splash around
- Bringing a blanket spread of toys outside
- Attending a stroller exercise class
- Creating a backyard obstacle course
- Using a sandbox with toys specifically for sand
