Stare at clouds. Make up stories about what you see.
2. Catch frogs.
3. Make one super-duper ice-cream sundae — don’t forget the whipped cream, cherries, and two spoons.
4. Go on a nature walk, pointing out bugs, trees, birds, and butterflies. Bring binoculars.
5. Play catch
6. Take the dogs outside and play a long game of fetch.
7. Build a birdhouse.
8. Ride bicycles
9. Go on a picnic, even if it’s just in the garden. Set out a blanket and bring a Frisbee!
10. Play Ring a ring a Roses and London Bridge barefoot in the grass or on sand.
11. Build an outdoor tepee from old sheets and a few poles.
12. Go to the seaside and collect seashells and build sandcastles
13. Make up a story, taking turns one sentence at a time. You start the story, then your grandchild continues it, you take over again, then he does, until you have an ending.
14. Make puppets with socks and markers, and put on an outdoor show.
15. Pick strawberries, peaches, and raspberries from a pick-your-own farm
16. Fold homemade paper airplanes and see whose goes the farthest.
17. Plant flowers or vegetables in your garden or in a window box. Get kid-size tools and let the grandchildren get dirty.
18. Fly a kite.
19. Blow bubbles. When you run out of liquid that comes with the wands, use dishwashing soap and water.
20. Go to the park and feed the ducks some day-old bread
