With the price of gas going up,
I thought it would be a really good idea to get the kids excited about being at home!
The weekends that we dont have plans we will draw out of the "Hang Out Jar".
I have written out several projects, folded them up, and tossed them in a jar. On Wednesday's we will pull out one project so that I will have a chance to gather all the items we need before we do the project on Saturday!
This week we have plans to go out of town but last weekend we drew "Let's Bubble Paint!".
There are all kinds of ideas like:
Lets have a cookout. Kids plan the menu.
Lets go skating at the park.
Let's bake something together.
Let's have a water balloon fight. (On the kids summer want list)
Let's pack up a pinic!
Let's plant something!
Game Day! Kids pick the game!
Movie Day! Let's watch an oldie!
Let's have a food fight! (On the kids summer want list)
You get the idea...
The kids are so excited about all the suprise projects that they
dont care about going anywhere at all!
