The summers in Texas are so hot, it's hard to bring myself to go
outdoors with the kids. Even swimming is too hot these days.
I would love some ideas on keeping kids busy inside!
We like to build forts inside. The kids play for hours in
them, hiding from imaginary foes and just playing house.
We do a lot of crafts as well, and on special days they get to
take a swim in my extra large tub.
We are cooking a lot and painting.
Cooking, cooking and cooking! And baking, too, if it is not too
hot. Too bad our kitchens in NYC are very small, but we still
My kids love painting and drawing. But I also set them up with a big container of water and they play sink or float. It is nice and cool for them and they have such fun.
We're doing a printable this morning that is really cute. It's two habitats - a forest and an ocean. Then a bunch of little animals. They color the habitats and animals, then cut out the animals and glue them into the appropriate habitat.
Sounds fun and cute!
We enjoy painting with a range of materials rather than
just the good old paintbrush!! Since her birthday, we have been
very into playdough as well!!
Mostly educational stuff.. reading, writing, crafts, a few fun
experiments and educational games. Here are other
summer activities to do too.
Water is always a hit here! My daughter just played "wash
dishes" with her play kitchen dishes in the bathroom sink.
