Practice Printing Bags - A great fine motor activity and fun writing practice! We practiced drawing shapes and letters. I filled resealable baggies with paint (and taped the top closed) and had the kids use Q-tips to draw shapes and letters on the bag. I use these all the time with my class, it's something I can pull out quick and the kids love them. We use them to practice pre-printing shapes, letters, sight words you name it!
Scribble Doodle and Draw: Use paint bags to practice printing letters, sight words, spelling words, and more.
Scribble Doodle and Draw: use paint baggies to practice printing letters, sight words, spelling words, etc.. so many ways! --I like the addition of the qtip as the writing tool for fine motor practice!

Shaving cream filled balloons..OMG y have I never thought of this before? this makes me feel so dumb

Shaving cream filled balloons. I am not going to lie this looks like a blast....Camp have water balloon and Shaving cream balloon fight
I filled about 150 balloons with shaving cream. This is about as difficult as filling water balloons: not too bad. It took me about an hour. One can of shaving cream fills from 15-18 balloons. And shaving cream is about $1, so not too bad. We played shaving cream balloon tag by attaching the balloons to their waist with a safety pin. Kind of like flag football, but the object of the game is to pop everyone's balloon. One person is "it" and everyone whose balloon gets popped is then also "it." Josh and I came up with this game together: as far as I know it's an original invention. It's definitely an outdoor game and it was a blast. The kids were utterly, completely enthralled with the balloons.
Shaving cream filled balloons. This will make my summer bucket list for sure!
Absolutely hilarious! Draw this stick figure and trampoline on your child's hand, and keep them busy for hours.

This looks like a tattoo, but why not draw it on a kid's palm with ink for a fun trick (and to possibly occupy their time/imagination for a bit).
Trampoline Tattoo; also, draw on a kid's hand for easy entertainment

Funny tattoo idea
trampoline small hand tattoo. I have absolutely no intention of getting a tattoo but this would be awesome and would entertain me to no end.
This is what you draw on your kid's hand to keep them busy for 30 minutes. Brady loved this, entertained him all night!! <--- It looks like a tattoo, but I can see it keeping a kid interested. The only thing is we don't want them writing on them selves and thinking it's okay, because we did it.

Favorite Books to Read Aloud to Your Kids. One of my very, very favorite things to do as a mom is to read chapter books aloud to my kids. We almost always have a book that we are in the middle of reading and we’ll read a little before bed or on a lazy Sunday afternoon. So, I thought it would be fun to compile a list of some of our favorites. We have read some FANTASTIC chapter books, so here’s a few of them. (See also my list of favorite kids picture books.)

For the kids fun: Rainbow Drink – Freeze different Kool Aid flavors in ice cube trays, place in glass and pour in Sprite
how sweet is this? colored ice cubs with kool aid . (:
Rainbow drink. Make colored ice cubes (with koolaid), stack in tall glasses and pour in ginger ale. The kids really enjoyed this! It took a lot of prep work though. I mixed up 6 different colors of Kool-Aid and froze them in ice cube trays. That really took a long time - and it took up space in my freezer. And now I have 6 half-packs of Kool-Aid powder in my cupboard that I need to use up...
Rainbow drink for a summer day :Kool Aid in different pitchers, pour the different colors into an ice tray and freeze them. When they are frozen, you can put them in any kid-friendly drink. If you use 7-up or Sprite, it turns into a fun spritzer that your kids will love!
