On days like this, I find a little activity for them to do outside that doesn't call for running and sliding and digging in the dirt...the stuff that they usually get into. This time, it was just quiet play.
A few cups or bowls.
A table or blanket.

Usually, they'll play with the beans for a while and move on to their rambunctious mannerisms and then come back to the beans. I like to sit back and watch them for a while before playing with them. It's neat to see their imaginations turn corners and round-a-bouts.
This is not only a fun little activity but it helps them with their motor skills, focus and concentration, creativity. But overall, it's my sneaky little way to get them outside to burn some of the endless fountatin of energy they have flowing inside their little hams. Moma knows best!!! *wink*
