'Let's go Outside!' Board Game Printable! {Practical Mondays #42}


WHY on earth would children need further entertainment outdoors? Aren't the grass, swings and slides enough? 

They are! But it's too darn hot. So instead of staying indoors, I thought it made sense to keep them in the shade! Putting leftover stickers from the Where’s Wally book our brand new color pencil set to use, I made this impromptu game one morning, before a playdate at the park. 

Other than the usual move 2 steps forward, back & miss a turn, I made stuff up like:

Hide the toy and make others look for it (Which stirred up a good deal of excitement, both hiding and hunting!), tattoo a moustache on another player’s face, find a flower, collect 10 leaves, climb a ladder, climb a ladder, run to a tree & back etc! The 5-6 year olds thoroughly enjoyed it!



Additional stuff you’ll require: pawns, die, a toy & face paint

No printer? No problem! You can draw one within minutes!

Here's the one I drew on a drawing sheet! With left over stickers! 

(Using Paw Patrol toys for pawns, cuz where are the pawns when you need them!)

You can make one too!


*Mostly* under the shade of a tree. Not bad!

  1. You're not just a practical mom -- you're a CREATIVE mom! I love a good vigorous scavenger hunt! And around here (Maine, USA) it's a matter of finding things to do because of the cold (or the never-ending mud season).

  3. This is actually the only time of year that we CAN go outside, because it's only in the high 70s! Hope you get some heat relief soon!

  4. Um... the linky tag is missing so I can't link up. We have been having super cold temps and it's supposed to warm up to the 4o's this week so we are anxious to get outside. Such a fun game idea.

    1. umm, can you try again? Cuz it seems to be there.

      We are loving summers although it's so hot that we long to get out of the city as often as possible!
