Unlike kids, preschool children are more prone to team and mass entertainment and games. And if it is usually quite enough for a one-year-old baby to spend time with mom, then children, for example, 4-5 years of age, are more interested in having fun in the company of their own kind.
It is often important to give a direction to an activity, to submit an interesting idea, to correctly and clearly formulate tasks so that the walk does not turn into a thoughtless and boring pastime.
Instead of inventing something to portray, it is much more interesting to draw to order or race.
Offer to write letters and words (and literacy at the same time), draw specific animals or objects. The tasks can be complicated if you invite the children to draw with their eyes closed or guess what is shown in the pictures.
You can diversify drawing by combining it with active games. For example, we often draw a caterpillar with children — many circles, on which one can later jump. Playing hopscotch is also popular with children, especially girls.
Here, children can do without the help of parents. More senior are engaged in distribution of roles, often the plot are episodes from your favorite cartoons or books.
You can diversify such games with the help of scrap materials — decorate clothes with leaves or flowers.
Many children of preschool age have a very strong desire to be the first, to win. This desire can be used in team games. Divide the children into groups, give the tasks, the one who copes first wins.
You can collect leaves, chestnuts, acorns for speed; dig a certain number of pits in the sandbox or build sand cakes.
This may include speed races, horizontal bar exercises, long jumps and height, etc. Naturally, all these classes should be supervised by adults.
I like the ball because it is lightweight and easy to carry around with you, and if you are confused by the size, you can use the inflatable.
You can play a knockout, throw in height and at a distance. Also, the forgotten edible-inedible game is very interesting for children. Boys love to play football or something similar.
With the desire and minimal organizational skills, it is very easy to entertain preschool children. Try to imagine yourself in the place of a child, think about what he would like, based on his interests and hobbies.
