You know those weekends when you have NO IDEA what to do with your kiddos to keep them happy and busy, and maybe even learning stuff? Here are a few ideas you can try! No money? Don't worry! I am often short on cash so these are all FREE or almost free.
WATER FUN DAY!
Check out these super fun and easy to do water activities for a hot summer day!
Scroll down to the WATER FUN DAY section!
MAKE A FOIL RIVER
Use the Heavy Duty Aluminum Foil to make a river in your yard. Then ask the kids to find things they think might float in the river. Put the hose at the high end and start sending things down the river! This is great fun, a good way to cool off, and a learning experience all in one!
VISIT A LIBRARY
Whether you still have to read to your child or your child can read to you, a library is a great place to spend some time. Explore new worlds and open your mind! Find out if your library has a story hour for children and attend. Even better, volunteer to read the stories to the kiddos yourself!
MAKE A PAN OF BUBBLES
Kids are always wanting to blow bubbles in their drinks. We are always stopping them. Why not give them the opportunity to blow bubbles as much as they want? Bug, fun bubbles! Use a large aluminum pan for cooking lasagna. Squirt some dish washing liquid in the bottom and then fill most of the way up with water. Give them a straw and let them go! You can blow bubble towers, make bubbles inside of bubbles, blow a whole "bed" of bubbles. We had a lot of fun doing this!
RIDE A PONY
Ponies are just cool! Look up pony rides in your area to see where they are. It doesn't cost much, usually. The kids have so much fun, too.
