What do you do with your kids on weekends?

Do you go out? Shop? My DH is at drill and looking for free to cheap things to do with the weather being yucky. they like to knit and play in room. Lattely they have been spending more time with the dogs and stuff. We go outside a lot for a few at a time because the weather is crummy but at least its somethign for time being. Gas right now to go to my moms is 100 a trip. :( so we have to reduce visits. they love going there! She has a yard and dogs play all day and kids rake or do what ever outside.

  • UGH! My hubby is at drill too. We went to a baseball field that is close to our house and still had the lights on and played baseballs w/o balls and bats. The kids had an awesome time. We will go through their closets tomorrow and probably go on a walk and to the park.

  • Indoor playgrounds (mcdonalds) or those bounce places with the big inflatables are always fun, an early movie, also depends on kids ages and weather. Chuck e cheese (but crowded on weekends) walk flea markets just to get out. If weather is ok, the park, a hike. Bake cookies, have them help with weekend dinners, rent a movie, make popcorn.

  • I don't do anything. My kids are responsible for entertaining themselves. Usually on the weekends they spend all day playing with their friends. If the weather is nice (in other words...not raining) they play outside. But otherwise the kids rotate between houses playing inside (usually video games or Twister at our house) as they annoy each set of parents and get kicked out. Last weekend they were mostly here.
    Unfortunately my kids got themselves grounded for the weekend so they will be in their rooms and/or driving me batty all weekend.

  • I'm a SAHM mom, so weekends aren't any different that weekdays. (We usually avoid errands on weekends though because places are more crowded.) Depending on the age of your kids, local indoor malls can be fun. We have two less than a couple of miles away; one has a mini play area, another is pretty big so just walking around & riding elevators & escalators is usually enough to entertain my 3-year-old.
