Good Morning Everybody! It's a SUNNNY TUESDAY and we have some great activities to get you moving and outside! Relay races, rubber eggs, DIY chalk, and another special snack are all on the blog today.


Animal Races

with Maisa

Grade Level: K-3rd


Individual or multiple people: 2+ people


Theme: Active


Materials: None except a big empty space for running


Location: Ideally outdoors


Instructions: Animal races are like regular races, but instead of running, in each race the racers imitate how an animal moves. The goal is to be the first one to the finish line by running the way a specific animal does. For instance, hop like a frog, or jump like a kangaroo.


Here are some examples:

Kangraroo: Racers must reach the finish line by jumping forward

Cheetah: This involves running on all fours: Hands and feet

Penguin: Waddle side to side toward the finish line.


Other ideas are to hop on one leg, or to run without picking up your feet. Feel free to create your own variations.



Colorful Rubber Eggs

From Julie


Grade Level: K-5


Individual or multiple people: Either


Theme: STEM, Spring

Eggs (as many as you want)

Food coloring

8 oz of vinegar per an egg

Cup


Location: At home, Kitchen Table

Further instructions or accommodations:

  1. Take an egg and gently place it into cup

  2. Pour 8 oz of vinegar into cup

  3. Add one teaspoon of food coloring

  4. Let the egg sit in the vinegar and food coloring for 48 hours

  5. Notice as the bubbles form over the eggshell. The vinegar is reacting with the calcium carbonate on the eggshells.

  6. Remove the egg from the vinegar and over a sink, carefully peel away the shell of the egg

  7. You can now have your rubber egg toss!

  8. The egg can still break, but if it falls you may get a do-over!



DIY Sidewalk Chalk Paint

With Tyler


Grade Level: K-5


Individual or multiple people: 1+


Materials:

  • Corn Starch

  • Water

  • Food Coloring

  • Large mixing bowl

  • Spoons

  • Paint brushes

  • Small plastic paint containers/ tupperware

  • Plastic wrap


Location: Sidewalk/ driveway


Instructions:

This is a fun activity to do on a nice sunny day!

  • To begin you need to mix the paint base

  • Mix equal parts cornstarch and water in a mixing bowl with a spoon

  • Divide the large patch of clear paint base into smaller containers for specific colors. Use as many containers as you plan to have colors

  • Next drop a few drops of food coloring in each container and stir. Add more color until desired tone is achieved.

  • Use paint brushes and have fun creating vibrant works of art!

  • Leftover paint can be stored in the containers with lids or plastic wrap for a few days.

  • As the paint drys on the concrete it will get less glossy and more vibrant
