Enjoying Outdoor Play with Julius Jr. #JuliusJr

Now that the weather is getting warmer, we've started taking mini trips outside to the playground. Both my son and I enjoy going outside and enjoying the warm sunny days.

Last month I received a package from Saban Brands filled with Julius Jr. themed outdoor play items including a Julius Jr. tumbler cup and outdoor activity sheets.

The activity sheets were created in partnership with the Center for Childhood Creativity (CCC), a recognized leader in early childhood development and creative play. These customized activities have combined the CCC’s overall goal with Julius Jr. key themes of playful adventure, active play, imagination and invention

These items came in very handy during our latest trip to the playground.

Before heading to the playground my son colored the inside sheet in his Julius Jr. tumbler cup. Then we picked one of the activities to complete for the day. We chose the Nature Hunt, which meant we'd pick up some leaves for a craft when we came back home.

Then we headed to the playground to swing on pipes, run across bridges and of course keep hydrated with our Julius Jr. tumbler.

Then we started collecting different leaves for our Nature Hunt project.

Once back home we cut the leaves in half, taped them down and spent time drawing the others sides. While drawing we discussed what we noticed about the leaves and how they were different.

It was a fun and quick project you can also recreate at home. Visit the CCC Family Activity page to download activity sheets you can do with your family.

We ended our day with more coloring, this time with new spring-themed Julius Jr. coloring sheets! We had a great day with Julius Jr.

  1. I love that this cup gets the kid involved and proud to have a way to hydrate! Its so important to get our water in and I know my daughter would be drinking forever from a cup she was allowed to design as her own!

  7. My two would LOVE a cup like that where they were in control of how it looked by coloring it themselves. And it would be a bonus for me because I would be able to tell them apart without having to label them.
