Summer Fun or Cures for Cabin Fever.....
wow.....2 blog posts in a row.....must be a record:)
my girls are grown so their cure for cabin fever would most likely be
but when they were younger, we sometimes needed something to shake things up a bit.
I told you about our annual "Camp Mommy" awhile back...
but here are some little ideas that I think might also be a big hit!
1. water balloons...always a winner!
why are some people so against this?
we had a blast each and every time....
and notice I said "WE".
water balloons are not just for kids:)
2. the trusty lemonade stand.....
or cookie stand, cupcakes, candy....all yummy:)
3. okay, this is SO cool....make your own "I Spy" or "Find It" game.
(sorry....I couldn't think of what you call these)
anyway, fill a water bottle with rice and little toy trinkets from around the house.
set a timer and each child gets to see how many items they find.
LOVE this one:)
4. Button Art! Isn't this pretty?
I think this calls for a whole blog post someday, don't you?
but for now, buy a whole bag of cheap buttons and let them go at it.
you could draw a design and let them fill it in, make letters....
Hey....this is a great Christmas gift idea!!!
5. And for a healthy, delicious snack...
fruit in a waffle cone!
(okay.....what brilliant person thought of this?:)
there you go...ideas for the kids who are bored, for a rainy day
or a day that is just TOO DANG HOT to play outside!
(we have a lot of those down here:)
and remember.....YOU have fun TOO!
