Delicious is that.. if the temperatures allow it there can also be played with water again!
Why is playing with water so much fun?
You can just get wet outside because the sun will dry everything up again. It gives a nice refreshing feeling and therefore you can play with more fun when the weather is hot outside. Outdoor play is very healthy there I already wrote a nice piece in this blog . And all senses are of course so stimulated which also gives a lot of fun!

A fun game for warm weather. At us tested the BSO and it was a great success:
A child is a lion or tiger, this is the ticker, and a child is the water carrier.
The water carrier fills a bucket with water and carries it on the head to the other side. (Bucket of Greek yogurt o.i.d.)
With the bucket on the head, the water carrier tries to get from one side to the other. But beware of the lion!You can get yourself to safety by standing behind the trees.
The tree counts to 5 and then you have to move on. As soon as the water carrier stands behind the tree, the lion returns to its lair. You draw this with pavement chalk in the middle of the field. As soon as the water carrier starts walking again, the lion also comes into action. If the water carrier is across the street, another water carrier and tiger will be chosen. We provided the necessary water fun and hours of fun at the BSO.
