Bonus: All these ideas work for inside play when it’s just too hot to hang outdoors!

Shape up
Washi tape shapes on the floor make a great DIY puzzle when it’s paired with plastic geometric pieces. Use a simple square for the littlest puzzlers or map out crazy shapes to be filled in by those with bigger brains. The possibilities are endless!
