Are Your Kids Bored at Home?

Constantly looking for ideas to spark the imagination of your kids without the use of technology?  Finding games or activities to do at the house can be tough.  Kids have become so warped in technology that they are losing their true sense of creativity.  Here are a few ways to get your kids imaginations running wild and bring some creative family fun into your home!

Plant a garden in the backyard. Kids will be responsible for watering and maintaining their plants.  Plus, this gets them outside in nature’s beauty.

Read a book together. Teach kids to use different voices for each character.  Act out scenes and bring the book to life!

 Game night! Grab some snacks and a few board and card games.  This brings healthy competition and can be educational too depending on the game.  Many games deal with numbers so great for advancing math skills as well as learning to problem solve.
Kids love play dates! Invite a friend over and let the kids build, throw footballs, create jewelry sets, decorate cupcakes.  The list goes on and on!

Who doesn’t love the great outdoors? Enjoy a bike ride together around the neighborhood or to a nearby park.  This will help teach kids to be aware of their surroundings and learn to look all directions while maintaining control of the bike.  Great strategy before driving! Wear your helmets!

Cook together! Give each person an assigned duty and set up dinner outside one night.  Change of scenery might just be what the doctor ordered!

Carwash party! Throw some water balloons at the car to get it wet and have some fun in the sun!  Each family member take a section of the car and have a contest to see who can get their area the shiniest!
