It’s summertime and for kids it means it’s time to be outside playing. However, we’ve been having a rash of afternoon thunderstorms. What do you do with active children when the sky turns grey? Or when temperatures swelter?
I found this article recently by Lifehacker with 10 ways to entertain you kids for under a buck. Most of the ideas require using things around the house like boxes and paper cups. Not all the activities are indoor, but a majority are.
Unfortunately, my twins are still a little too young for some of these ideas, but I’ll be bookmarking the page anyways. I remember trying several of these as a kid but had forgotten about them. I’m glad to have the reminder for these simple forms of entertainment.
The one idea I didn’t know about was the Home Depot Kids Workshops. They are offered on the first Saturday of every month at 9 a.m. at all Home Depot stores for children 5-12. Sounds like a perfect outing with daddy. I can’t wait until my kids are old enough to attend these workshops. They sound like fun.
