  • try baking and cooking. I like to make worms and dirt (chocolate pudding, oreos and gummy worms), cookies, cupcakes, and pizza. i like to make stuff where the kids can engage in. Also some other fun things are painting (not sure where you live, but we have a pottery painting place and the kids love it).. Also let the kids decide what they want to do.. its funny to hear what they come up with

  • I go to the Dollar store and get a bunch of things like craft sticks and other things and construction paper. then turn the kitchen table into a big mess with our creative ideas, lol. also my 6 yr old likes wrapping things so he uses plain paper, draws designs then gets out the tape and scissors and wraps "gifts" which are just usually books and then he hands them out to us.

  • For a science day ad dds' class they make goo and quicksand, and it was so fun I came home and made some with both kids! Its super easy, cornstarch and water! And food coloring for effect. Super easy and they loved it.

  • We do "kids can cook Fridays". Where the kids cook for the adults and they get to make anything they want using ingredients of the day. The kids really love to cook for us.
