Living under the same roof with two active grandkids is exciting and a bit messy! My grandson, Weston, is very curious and fearless. He loves to explore outside and helping me garden is a favorite pastime for both of us. So his clothes sometimes take a beating and I do a lot of laundry. But as an active grandmother, I love getting down and dirty with grandkids so I wanted to share some of my favorite things to do outside with them!
Caution — things may get a bit dirty!
Things to Do Outside with Grandkids
We spend a lot of time outside but here are some of our favorite things to do!
- Gardening (digging in the dirt will make him happy anytime; he even gets dirt in his ears )
- Washing the car (on the really hot days, this keeps us cool, but very wet and soapy)
- Sidewalk Chalk (his favorite color of chalk is blue, so we usually finish up with his clothes very blue)
- Painting (he loves to find unusual items to dip into the paint and see what patterns he can come up with)
- Playing ball (look at that stance)
This is Weston’s all-time favorite, and he loves to have me throw the ball at least a million times. And in the Texas heat and humidity, our clothes need some powerful cleaning.

I need dependability in my appliances, especially my washer and dryer. I use them daily because my grandkids are dirt magnets. Maytag is the brand I have trusted for decades and being designed, engineered and assembled in America assures me of their superior quality. Maytag is as American as apple pie and baseball.
