DIY Valentine's Day Animal Envelopes
Friendship Bracelets Back in the 80s, we loved making these bracelets and swapping them with our best friends. This summer, teach your kids the art of friendship bracelet making and they’ll be occupied for hours. Use neon colors like these for a modern twist on the retro classic.
Asking Good Questions That Encourage Creative Thinking: Consider the difference - “What colour is this (autumn) leaf?” versus”When the leaves change colour, how does the new colour get into the leaf?” Post includes lots of examples for rephrasing questions to encourage creative thinking.
DIY Travel packs for road trips with kids! Each treat box spaced out the goodies for the journey. For instance, the child could have a bag of goodies once they “saw a deer”, “had been driving an hour”, “had a nap”, “saw 15 red cars,” etc. Almost like a scavenger hunt
Autumn Scavenger Hunt: I took this idea and made my own for older kids. I put a point value next to each item so we could break out in groups and make it more competitive. I included things like: Take a picture around a large tree, write down the address of a house with smoke coming from the chimney, etc. Fun to do before/ after Thanksgiving dinner?
