  • yeah we have rock concerts we make forts and play zoo keeper or grocery store or we make our own music videos and commercials. we have a blast. just recently my kids have taken to reinacting their favorite stories. i do find it funny tho that my 5 year old son can't get past the thought that not every story has a super hero it is so cute!!

  • As long as it isn't destructive. Sure. Last week it was scorching hot. Too hot to play outside. Next thing I know is the kids have all the floor pillows scattered around the family room and they were laughing and having a ball. When I asked what they were playing I was told. "Hot Lava". OOOkay. The pillows were rocks...and everywhere else was 'hot lava'. They had to jump on every single pillow in turn without touching the lava to win. I wound up playing to and we did that for 2 solid hours. It beat the heck out of them vegging in front of the boob tube.
