11 things to do in the outfield during a Little League game

    Watching my daughter playing baseball in Little League, I'm always amused at what the children who are supposed to be all "eyes on the ball" are really doing out there. Usually, nothing baseball-related in the least. Now of course, these are 4-, 5-, and 6-year-olds. But they sure do make sitting there for an hour or more a little more entertaining!

11 Things to do in the outfield during little league, a guide for 5-year-olds

  • Dance
  • Run around in circles 
  • Draw in the dirt (shapes, letters, it's all good)
  • Start a rock collection
  • Talk to each other
  • Pick up dirt and watch it fall through your fingers to the ground. 
  • Wave to parents...or random people walking by
  • Pick your nose
  • Run off the field to tell a parent something important ("I'm bored")
  • Sit and pick the grass
  • Toss mitt in the air and try to catch it.
  • And if all else fails, chase the ball!

What would you add? Have you seen the younger kids do funny things at sports games? Share them so we can all get a giggle!
