Are your kids getting restless? Ward off boredom with these simple at-home activities:
“Stained Glass” Window
This art project lets your kids learn about colors! Hang a plastic sheet against a window and break out your tissue paper. By gluing or taping tissue paper to the sheet, your kids will be able to let their imagination soar.
Make campground memories this summer, even from the comfort of home. Set up a tent in the basement or the backyard, light a candle for a “campfire” and sing some campfire songs!
For a treat, try making homemade s’mores: get your supplies, then use a stove burner or the microwave to heat up those marshmallows! Be careful when microwaving the marshmallows, as they inflate and can make a mess if left in for too long.
If you’re happy with a little more noise in your life, consider making instruments with your kids. Tin cans and balloons make excellent drums, while popsicle sticks and rubber bands can make a kazoo. For more instructions, follow the link:
Tin Can Bowling
For something a little simpler, you can try tin can bowling! Set up some empty tin cans and let your kids loose with a small ball or beanbags. This activity is great outside, but can also work in empty hallways.
