  • Take the kids on a wagon ride or to the park. We have a free petting zoo too. For myself, i paint my toe nails or bake a cake.

  • Have friends over for movies and dessert. Though the movies are usually Boondock Saints and Heartbreak Ridge LOL

  • Have a stay-at-home party. I'll make lots of snacks and then we'll play board games, two player video games, hide and seek, things like that. Another thing that's fun we do is get the biggest piece of paper we can find, some crayons, markers, pencils and whatever else we have, put the paper in the middle of a table that's big enough for all of us to sit at but small enough that everyone can reach it and we each take turns telling part of a story and then drawing it. So the first person says, 'once there was a puppy' and then draw a picture of a puppy, next person says 'and it was walking in a garden' and they draw a garden and so on....

  • My son and I "camp out". We bring our sleeping bags into the living room (after making room on the floor) put on a good movie, eat popcorn and snacks while we watch the movie.

  • You can rent movies from your local library. I like the camp out in the living room idea.. I dislike the mall, but the people watching for me is fun, and since my daughter is only 17 months old, she likes to watch people too..

  • Maybe there's a park near you that has ducks and geese. We take our daughter and feed the ducks popcorn and pretzels. Lots of fun =)
