Conjure up activites with everyday essentials that are so entertaining, no one will feel deprived:
- Shovel and dirt: Let kids dig a little and run through a sprinkler to rinse off.
- Glittery castoffs: Raid your closet for giveaways so kids can play dress-up.
- Shaving cream: Hide small toys in blobs of shaving cream; let kids find the treasures.
- Plain old water: Paintbrushes and H2O can “redecorate” a fence or walkway.
- Balloon: Stuck inside on a rainy day? Blow up a balloon for a game of indoor volleyball.
