WATER PLAY
Pull out your gum boots and find a puddle to muck around in (or fill a wading pool with water).  Then, bring out the food coloring, bubble bath, whisk, funnels, ladles, water wheel, etc.  To have a wild 'n wet time!

SAND PLAY
Hop in the sandbox and use "tools" such as sieves, empty spice shakers, toilet rolls, aluminum cans with one or two ends removed, plant pots, etc.  To add to the fun.

NATURE SCAVENGER HUNT
Alone or racing with a friend, see how many of the following items you can find:

DONUT BIRDFEEDER
Welcome the birds back with a tasty treat! Sandwich a bagel between two plastic lids.  Thread a string through the center, and tie a big knot at the bottom.  Hang from a tree.

DESIGNER BIKE
It's time to pull out the old bike again. Spruce it up by tieing streamers or ribbons to the handlebars or weaving them through the spokes, and by sticking colorful stickers or tape strips onto the frames and fenders.  To make a clatter noise as you ride, clothespin a playing card to the rear fender brace, with the tip of the card between the spokes.

SCOOP BALL
Make ball scoops by cutting two or more 1-litre (or 1 quart) plastic milk jugs in half horizontally.  Toss a small ball back and
forth to a partner, using only the scoop to catch and throw.

PET ROCK
Create your own pet rock by collecting a few well-shaped rocks and gluing them together.  When dry, paint your new creature, and add features with markers, bits of felt or fabric, pipe cleaners, etc.

SPLASHY SIDEWALK PAINTINGS
Add some color to your life! Use one of your dad's large paintbrushes (or a plant mister) to create pictures on the sidewalk, using water mixed with a little paint powder, food coloring, or Kool-Aid powder.
