It's hot outside- so get out the sprinkler and water table and have some fun! Give the kids squirt guns and have them squeeze the triggers (great hand/finger strengthening and eye-hand coordination). Put containers into a water table and have them pour water back and forth. Squirt them with water guns and watch them run (gross motor). Outside water fun is great fun for everyone.
