This week I'm focusing on activities to keep kids occupied...especially on long three-day weekends, when you aren't 'going anywhere fun,' and your kids are stir crazy from being kept inside all day, because the weather is horrible...oh...is that just my family?
I've come across several sites that have some great boredom busting ideas, that keep kids from being whiny...and also don't wear mom out! Perfect!!
Here are some of my faves!
Jessica Wilson, of Scrumdilly-do! has tons of great ideas on her site! This one really stuck out to me this time! Simple and fun crayon rubbings from everyday objects. Neat-O! Click here to see the how-to!
Next up is Amber Lee, of Giver's Log, with a great How-to on getting and keeping kids' craft supplies organized! Plus it's an activity all on it's own!!! She also has tons of other fun activities, recipes and ideas on her site! Click here to see all about these fun boxes!
Here's Heidi, from FrugalGirls.com, with the classic, but always awesome, homemade play-doh recipe! Kids love this stuff...it never gets old! Click here to see her recipe and tips!
Last, but not least, is Valerie, from Toddler Boredom Busters (Yes...she has a blog devoted to just this! Awesome!), with a really fun stick puppet show for kids to make...This type of activity equals HOURS of entertainment at my house! Click here for all the details!
Well, I hope you all enjoy your Presidents' Day weekend! We'll be home...but at least we won't be bored! Have a great day!
