Kids are often tough to please – but they’ll be grinning from ear to ear whenever they’re engaged in the right things. It goes without saying: Playing with your child holds its own intrinsic joy, regardless of the activity. There is no shortage of attractions in our community geared toward keeping the kids happy. Here are few fun things to do with your child this children’s day.
A great way to reuse water bottles (or you can purchase an indoor bowling set). Line 6-10 water bottles up at the end of your hall or living room. Place a line of duct tape at the starting line. Grab a medium-sized indoor ball and start bowling! If you want, keep score and give out trophies at the end. (Note: if you need to stabilize the water bottles or make the game more difficult, simply fill them up with some water. Don’t forget to screw the tops on tightly!)
Cooking is very educational. Kids practice math as they count and measure, science as they observe how ingredients change when they are blended or heated, and language arts as they build their vocabulary.
Combine 4 tablespoons of four, 2 tablespoons of cocoa, 4 tablespoons of sugar, pinch of baking soda, 3 tablespoons of Nutella or chocolate chips, 3 tablespoons of milk and 3 tablespoons of oil in a large coffee mug. Whisk well with a fork until smooth. Microwave for 2 to 3 minutes. Top with whipped cream and chocolate syrup. Enjoy!
T-shirt painting is tons of fun for both children and adults. Bright colored paints and a semi-steady hand can transform a plain t-shirt into a real fashion statement. Better, they enable children to express themselves creatively and then wear their statement again and again. Simply cut household sponges into fun shapes like hearts, stars, circles, and leaves, and have a rainbow of paint colors available for the kids to experiment with. After sponging on their designs, they can embellish with paintbrushes (make sure to have several sizes lying around!) and add extra swirls or outlines with glitter paint.
A treasure hunt party is all the rage with all children. The idea is to create your own treasure, which could be old jewelry, gold coin candy, and toy presents that you hide all over the house or the backyard. Or you can create a treasure chest out of a cardboard box with a map where X marks the spot! Parents and kids can dress up like pirates with eye patches and you can have games such as walking the plank or the children can go play with plastic swords.
Most kids love animals, and are especially fascinated by big cats and other exotic creatures at the zoo. What better way to see these animals up close and learn more about them than by taking them to the Zoo?
Kids will be thrilled to see these beautiful animals up close–and you never know; with this gift you could inspire a future zookeeper or veterinarian’s career.
What kid doesn’t secretly wish for a run in the park along with swings and sandwiches? Surprise your kid by planning a picnic to nearby amusement park or children’s park along with his/her favorite snack. Plan some fun games like Sun-Moon, Clap and Catch and your kids’ will have the time of their life.
