50 Fun Things For Kids to Do

It’s easy to allow our kids in front of the screen when they aren’t sure what else to do. Allow this list of fun activities to help!

Now it’s not that I’m a mean mommy.

Because I’m really not.

But I’ll tell you something: I’m not too crazy about seeing my kids’ sweet faces glued to a screen—–the computer, the television, the whatever. Especially when there’s fresh air outside and new adventures to be had.

So that’s why you’ll hear me announce: No electronics today.

None. Nada. Not happening.

Well, what are we supposed to do then? They’ll whine say.

So glad you asked . . . because here’s a nice long list of fantastic activities to choose from!
