Every parents wants there child to have a good time and learn. I always take advantage of activities that are low cost or free. I find that children like things simple. They can get overloaded and over stimulated easily. I have came up with a couple more FREE ideas to share !
- Nature Walks
Let you and your child/children take a small walk through your neighborhood, creek, or even community trails. There are so many types of species to look for anywhere you live. Bring along your camera phone, camcorder, or any recording device to let them pretend the are explorers or biologist. Make sure to pack your Eco friendly water containers to stay hydrated. Also bring a first aid kit and small backpack for other basic essentials. This activity can be done with one child or many. You can even include friends, because this activity is totally free.
- BYOB Lego Parties
Invite a small group of friends and family over. Have them bring a bag lunch and there favorite Lego’s. Give the children a room or space where they can spread out all of the pieces. This will give them hours of imagination play along with engineering and hand and eye coordination play. This can also be done with K’Nex’s, Playmobile, or whatever building toys your kids are into at the time.
