Some of my favorites from this lise: build a fort, nature walk, scavenger hunt, cook/bake, make and blow bubbles, tye die, homemade salt clay, make a milk carton boat, pet rocks, "travel" around the world (food, games, etc. from all over), make slime...
For summer: Mom puts together lists under five different categories - Oh the Food we will Eat, Oh the Service that can be Done, Oh the Places we will Go, Oh the Crafts we will Make, and Oh the Activities we will Do; every Sunday, as a family, they plan out the week w/activities from the lists.
If I (or hubby) ever travel for work, this would be fabulous for the little one: they get to open an envelope everyday we are gone and have an activity prepared for them by the parent that's away or something else special for them to do. Helps them remember Mommy and Daddy will be back soon but also that they love them enough to put this together. Love that!
