Things to do With the Kids


I am having a look back at some of my post from the past years. I hope you will look with me too.


*Need something to occupy kids old enough to use the computer? Check out this painting app Jackson Pollack style. You can print them out or save to your computer.


*Everyone should make this bread with the kids; you can't go wrong with it and they will have a blast!


*Ok, I know Easter is a not on the horizon yet but who says kids can't still hunt eggs indoors? No eggs? Use blocks or other small items that you can hide.

*How about an indoor scavenger hunt? Easy to set up and lots of fun. 

*Ever had Cornflake Balls? You know the kids will love these.

  7. Love these ideas, especially the egg hunt idea. I think I'll have my kids go on a hunt today but we'll use something else instead of eggs.

  14. What great idea! The painting app looks fantastic! I just linked up a Homemade Bread in a Bag post. My boys did it in kindergarten, and we've made it at home many, many times. It's perfect for kids, because everything goes into a bag and they can smash it all up! I'm over at Blissful Roots if you want to check it out. Thanks again for sharing! Have a great day!

  15. First of all the bread looks delicious and easy so I'm thinking to grab a little 4-yr-old an make some. The cornflake balls I'm ignoring (or as much as I can with them calling my name). Such fun activities. The grands will be here Friday night so I'm stocked with activities. Thank you for linking to Sharing the Shelter.
