I'm Kanda, and I decided to do a blog to let people know how I do things with my kids, and also let other's give ideas. For the summer I love to do an activity calander so the children will never get bored. I try to make it fun and inexpensive. I think the children do look forward to it. I will try and post two times a week on fun things we are doing or give suggestions on what you can do. Some things will be new to me and some I just repeat, because it works.

Indoor Fun and Outdoor Fun
January can be hard on kids with no parks to go to. Kids need variety. A simple game is to let them color snow with a spray bottle and food coloring. The zoo animals are more alive in the winter. And instead of a big fort, make a small fort or wonderland for little figures (army guys) on a the picnic table that is covered in snow. Sometimes when the kids are really restless, I'll take them to McDonald's or somewhere with a playground, buy the ice cream and let the play for a hour. Well worth the money. It gets their energy out. The South Towne Mall has a free Dinosaur playground (by major store pad) for parents to rest, and let the kids unwind. The library is also great for story time, and you can pick up books.
