Activities for the Kiddos
Every kid has a little mad scientist hiding inside of them, and nothing is more fun than spending a little time dreaming up mixtures that bubble and steam and overflow! Here are 10 crazy concoctions you can whip up at home to satisfy their need to explore and create.
A block of ice with frozen treasures inside. Pound away! Summer fun!

Such a great idea!!! Each kid chooses a ball, completes the chore, then chooses another one. After 30 minutes (or whatever), whoever has the most balls gets a prize -- no-chores day, gets to pick a movie, etc.
Cards in a rainbow of colors with the colors written on them, and matching white cards with each of the same colors printed. How it's Done Child first sets out all of the colored cards. Next, they pick up one "white" card at a time, and match the color on the card with the "colored" card as they say the name. What I LOVE about this one is that you can see how excited such a young child gets when you say "You can read your colors!!!" Not only are they learning to recognize the letter patterns of each word, they are seeing the word and the color together, which helps to reinforce the learning of that word/color
