Help me impress an 8-year-old!!!

Posted by   + Show Post
I'm tending an 8 year old little boy today. Last time he was over it was pretty obvious that my bag of tricks (simple science experiments) that I use to impress my preK and K coop kiddos was really "uncool"
He's not supposed to get too dirty (so our backyard mud put is out!) and the toys we have are all educational and preschool aged.
Halp!!

I mentioned this post in passing to my daughter. She got hungry and is now baking chocolate chip cookies! LOLOLOL Like mother, like daughter.

  Now I'm hungry too.  I would go with the cookie idea. You can make several simple cookies such as oatmeal cookies or sugar cookies.  :)

I'm probably too late for today, but what about card games to play while you eat your cookies? Or you could have him invent his own board game or something.
