Go for a picnic, take a book to enjoy, and then spend time playing catch or on the play equipment!
Take walks as a family after dinner! (For younger students—look for words, talk about the colors of flowers, count the flowers,…) Walking and talking is a great way to hear your child, and to encourage them to explore the world around them.
