Talk about fun! I’m sure we all have pretended to make witches or wizard’s brew as a child. Now you actually can! I’m always looking for fun things to do with my kids, and with summer weather (just about) here, we can get outside and make a mess! And doing it outside makes clean up easy, we can usually just hose everything down.
This past weekend was Victoria Day long weekend here in Canada. That means Hubby had an extra day off. We had no plans and we had big plans. The actual weekend was not planned yet we ended up in Regina at the Saskatchewan Science Centre and the Royal Saskatchewan Museum. FUN!
Monday we planned on hitting up the ball field down the street, but it was full of gofer holes. So… we headed home.
Each of my girls get to choose every aspect of their birthday. Once Gauge gets older he’ll get to do the same. They choose their breakfast (as normal), lunch and supper. What we do that do and so on. Included is, of course, their cake.
There are so many great ideas out there! From very complicated and I stand no chance of doing them, to the very simple.
Checking the mail is a big event here. We get parcels from grandparents, my grandmother bought them a magazine subscription, their Little Passports and any of the little surprises that show up. Each day I hear “anything for me?!”, and sadly often I’m stuck saying no.
Then we got out Nerd Blocks! We received a Nerd Block Jr Girls and Boys. Your Nerd Block is a mystery box full of themed nerd gear.
Entertaining children in the best of times, in a fully toy-stocked house can be challenging in the best of times but when you are stuck in a vehicle with very limited items. A child’s boredom could ruin an amazing trip/vacation.
These can be great for all ages, I know I could sleep a 24+ hour drive away easily, but with three children that’s not necessarily an option.
