what to do today?

my husband is off on a bike ride and I want to do something with the kids rather than waiting for him to come home later this afternoon. Any suggestions? My kids are 3 1/2 and 22 months and I am 19 weeks pregnant.

  • A picnic at the park. Go when they are hungry so they might sit a little.

  • Do the picnic @ home in the back yard - even pich a tent, if you have one. If raining have the picnic on the floor in the house.

    Bake something child friendly like roll out sugar dough cookies - they will love pressing out the dif. shapes and decorate if you have sprinkles or such.

    Let them help make homemade personal pizza's.

    Color something pretty for dad.

    Go for a walk round the neighborhood and make it a scavenger hunt (List thing u know u can encounter : rock, leaf, feather, etc. and bring a bag to colect them in.)
