Activities at Home:
- Sidewalk Chalk
Driveways are great for this. The elementary school down the street also has a huge blacktop area that makes a nice blank canvas.
- Paper Dolls
It's not too late to pick up some for Easter baskets. Target had a cute Barbie paper doll set in the coloring book aisle.
- Bring those Audio Books inside!
If you don't have a CD player, pick up a cheap one at a big box retailer. I have a great list of audio books for kids here on the blog. This could make for a quiet half hour or so for you to get things done while they listen and use their imaginations.
Hide and Go Seek, Candyland, Chutes and Ladders...those never go out of style
- Be artsy
- Send them outside
- Rainy day? Try a learning toy
