Outdoor activities for children and young people in Solihull connected with the Diamond Jubilee and the Oympics
By LocalPlato | Wednesday, May 23, 2012, 17:00
This week I have concentrated on finding websites with suggestions of outdoor activities to celebrate the Diamond Jubilee and the Olympic Games, not least because, as I write this, we actually have some sunshine at last and it is lovely outside. However, some children and young people tend to always learn better outside even when it is raining, so this information is especially for them. Hopefully some of these ideas will not only be useful to parents and teachers but also to those organising street parties or running summer holiday activities.
Outdoor games in Solihull
This will be the last Local Plato article dealing with activities connected to these two events. I shall be spending some time now trying to find out all of the activities in the area over the school summer holidays, especially those that are free or easily affordable, but also those that carry a charge. If any of you who read this have any information you would like to share, please register on the site and put this information in the events section. I will hopefully start to write articles about these by mid-June.
Useful sites for outdoor games which could beused for the Diamond Jubilee
Useful sites for outdoor games connected to the Olympics.
The Activity Village site has suggestions for holding your own Olympic Games. A website intended for the very young - First School - has content in the form of a lesson plan but don't be put off by this - it simply means the instructions are very clear - and Activity 5 would be fun for older children and even teenagers who love playing "silly" games. And finally 7 general outdoor activities can be found on the Kaboose site but they would be great ideas for a mini Olympics.
