  • Try a scavenger hunt around the house, hide things that you already have and when they find them with you everyone gets a popsicle or candy treat. So much fun for almost nothing investment wise.

  • We make peanut butter play doh. They can eat it and make things out of it. We use dried fruit as eyes and windows and such. They love to paint our slider door...this also works on windows. You just buy water based paint, mix in some dish soap and let 'em paint the door! if you let them do it out side all you need to do is spray it off w/ a hose and wash cloth. They think it is the greatest thing in the world to do! Go to Michael's or a dollar store they have tons of crafts. Foam letters and hats they can decorate little kits of popsicle houses. There are also coupons in the Sunday press for 40% off one item at Michael's.
    Slip and slides are great fun to. They are about $5 at Walmart.
    Do a lemonade stand and let them use the $ towards something that they want to do it will keep them occupied for a while and teach them about $....see if you have a Children's museum locally. They are normally relatively cheap to get into and a ton of fun.
