Rock climbing with a three year old

by Deborah J. Stewart, M.Ed. on June 11, 2011

in Outdoor Play, Physical Development, Rock Climbing

When my little nephew Wy comes over, I learn to view things in and outside of my house with new eyes…

Everyday, I drive past these rocks that are out in my front yard and don’t really give them much thought. My husband put them in the yard as a landscaping feature and I have just kind of gotten used to having them there…

But on this beautiful, sunny and warm day  – I took Wy around to the front yard and there he found the big rocks…

As soon as he saw them, his expression was priceless and off he went on a rock climbing adventure. A little uncertain at first as to how to navigate the big gaps between rocks but it wasn’t long before he discovered he could make the leap and soon he was leaping easily from rock to rock…

And up and down the rocks, all the while never letting go of his bright blue bottle (which I will talk about very soon)…

I have a new appreciation for the rocks out in our front yard. My husband may have put them there to look pretty but through the eyes of a three year old, it is an adventure in rock climbing…

I was hoping to link up with the link-up below but I was a little late:) You can still view all the fun outdoor ideas anyway!
