Indulging Your Shy Kid Into Physical Activities
If your kid shies away from sports, there are a number of other fun activities you can try. Something as simple as running through a sprinkler can help (just make sure that the activity is restricted to summers). Or else, go outside and play in the sandbox. You can even take a magnifying glass and help your kid investigate the yard. If you have nothing else to do, just paint some rocks with water colors. Planting something or rather anything in the garden is another great idea. Or for some extra fun, you can try mixing some colors with water balloons.
