We needed to get outside at “Camp Mom” this morning, and I knew just the silly summer sport for the kids. Pool noodles for hockey sticks and a giant blown-up beach ball for the puck made the perfect summer props to play an outdoor version of hockey.
Simply set up orange cones as the goal markers and then divide into teams. (In our case, it was Travis versus mommy and little sister).
Then take turns whacking the beach ball down the field toward your opponent’s goal. First team to 10 points wins!
Or you don’t even have to keep score. Kids will no doubt just have fun with the mechanics of chasing the beach ball around with the pool noodle, which is sure to elicit delight.
