I feel that spring is right around the proverbial corner….yet it’s not quite here yet. While we do our waiting that seems to take forever every year, I got to thinking of things we can do to keep everyone entertained. Kids can be cooped in the house for way too long and literally, drive you crazy, right?! We just went to the park this afternoon and it was, shall we say, a very “brisk” walk! Yes, brrr, that wind was cold! I’m not so sure that was a good idea or not. What to do? Here are some ideas that hopefully will get them to step away from the video games and get the creative juices flowing.
Get going-Load the kiddos in the car and go somewhere you’ve never been in your community. Maybe there is a new aquarium in the city, a movie, a science museum.
Get cooking!-kids love to help out in the kitchen and what more perfect a day than when it’s too cold out or rainy. Crack open those cookbooks and let them pick something out. Maybe a trip to the grocery will be in store first but that’s ok too.
Get creating-try a new craft project.
Get competitive-what about all those games carefully stored away. Have a fun family game day or game night! We love game nights!!
Get socializing-let them have a sleepover with their best buddies. They can entertain each other…;)
I hope this helps stir up some of your own ideas. Share them here! We’d love to hear what other families do to stay entertained until the weather cooperates.
I found a great blog from Redbook on some more great ideas!
