The rain is going to pour down today, what should we do?

It's Saturday, and I want to have a fun day at home. We watched a movie together yesterday, and I really don't want to do that again today...Our babies are 4 and 6, so attention spans are short. What is something fun and different we can do? We have to run to walmart in a bit anyway. Any ideas of what we could pick up?

  • Cut and paste paper chains in bright spring colors, then use them to decorate the room they play in.

    Board games are good too. When mine were that age (and older) they loved playing Candy Land.

    GL with your day :-)

  • I don't yet have kids, but with my godchildren, we usually try to do something new, depending on the age, you can teach them to crochet, sew, or simply weave a potholder. Board games are usually a winner in our house as well, and one time we took blankets and turned the dining room into a campsite, along with microwave smores and a story each of them picked out to read. Painting is always a winner as well.....but can get kind of messy.
