We’ve been experiencing weeks of intense heat here in Kansas. With three young and active children, the heat has provided a challenge as they can’t go outside and play for long stretches of time.
So, everyday has been exercise in creativity (and sometimes patience!) as I wrack my brain for new and interesting indoor activities to keep them occupied. Earlier this week, I was feeling rather uninspired when I spied my stack of magazines. I pulled out a few issues that were getting ready to head to the recycling bin, got out scissors, glue, and other craft supplies and told them to make a page of all their favorite pictures.
They had a blast and it kept them busy for quite a long time. Best of all, it cost me nothing as I used things we already had on hand.
What fun & frugal activities have you been doing with your youngsters recently? I’d love get some new ideas to add to my list!
