In the dark games to play

Postby JoJohn В» 05.02.2013

.

My 3-year-old loves to be outdoors, no matter the weather. I also feel for my eldest daughter. By the time she has returned from school, finished her homework or attended her after-school activities, it is pitch-dark outside. She misses out on the outdoor fun the younger ones have had had during the day.

What if we could find things to play that would only work in the dark? I've collected a few basic supplies — flashlights, glow-in-the-dark paint, headlamps and mini-battery operated lights — to fuel our outdoor play after dark. The girls were so excited when I told them we were going out to play in the dark. The headlamps were particularly popular with the little ones, who immediately set off to become cave explorers. Taking flashlights outside was also a great way to observe the weather; the mist looked eerie under a flashlight and we could watch the raindrops in the light rays.

Here are 10 after-dark play ideas to try with your kids:. The children run around, one child has a flashlight and has to tag the other children by shining a light beam at them. In this game, children quietly sneak up to the "grandmother.

The object is to steal a piece of treasure the grandmother has at her side we used a glow-in-the-dark ball and get back to the start with them without being caught by the grandmother's flashlight beam. My children love to play hide and seek so this was a real favorite. The seeker uses their flashlight to find those who are hiding. We added glow-in-the-dark paint to the water in our water table.

I also dropped in some glowing stars and moons and added a variety of containers. The girls had great fun making "star soup. For a great treasure hunt, we filled plastic Easter eggs with mini-battery operated lights — we also added water beads for a special effect.

We hid them around the garden and found them by hunting around for where the lights are shining. The girls also enjoyed the effect the lit eggs had when they put them inside their clothes. It washes away easily in the rain. We used this to paint a hopscotch grid on the driveway and used the glow-in-the-dark balls as markers. Children love to play with shadows. We made a homemade light table from a translucent plastic box with a black lid. Turn the box upside down and place battery-operated lights inside.

There are all kinds of activities you can do with a light table. You can place natural materials, glass beads, buttons or candy wrappers on top to make patterns, spread sand or rice on top to make marks or use interesting colored containers. On a clear night what could be better than looking at the stars? We printed out a map of the stars but just to look up into the night sky can be awe-inspiring.

We have had such a good time. The girls love to wrap up warmly and investigate what they can see with a flashlight. My 3-year-old wanted to go outside to play with ice as it was getting dark this evening.

I asked her if she would like me to put the outside light on so she could play. Editor's note: This article was originally published in and is always popular at this time of year.

Everything we have tried so far from your website, the three year old has loved.
