  • Our family enjoys wildlife "looking". We would find a consevation area nearby and pack a picnic lunch and go "looking". Great pics and good family time.

  • walks, the park, museums, the mall, the bounce house (yes, I bounce too - I'm free!), the library, the beach, splatter art, board games, charades (he loves it, go figure), a game called "worm king" where he is the worm king or I am the worm queen and whoever is the king or queen tells the other person silly things they have to do (act like a monkey, dance like a dork, hop like a frog)

  • depends on the kid really.
    I'd love to be outdoors, but my kids are homebodys and like TV and video games. Not my style.

  • We play in the yard. Two winters ago, my husband and his brothers made a hockey/skating rink for the kids, they play out there for hours. We have many yard games, such as tetherball, volleyball, and croquet. My husband hung a basketball goal also. We like to ride bikes. They play tag and hide and seek and many things like that.

  • We go to the science museum and the zoo - alot! We also go to the playground because it's close to the house. We walk at the park sometimes, too.
