So we make use of exploring our local village, walks, scooter rides, bug hunting, flower & bird spotting. (make a print out with things tick off when they spot them on walks)
It's a dream come true when it rains, we go out and splash in puddles, not a care for getting wet and muddy, just a towel & film when we get home.
Painting the garden fence with washable paints, and/or the path.
Sticker crafts, they love this. Allowing them to stick stickers everywhere outside. (they wash off eventually)
Cake sales out the front of the house. (baking them first)
Taking a bus to the big supermarket, with a list they've put together themselves for a picnic or meal. Letting them buy the ingredients & head home to make the meal and eat it.
Den building (buy TONS of pegs and bamboo canes)
Washing up dishes.
Making homemade playdoh, super cheap and easy to make.
Planting things like cress, that grow quickly.
Buy a medium sized paddling po. I find they have more fun and use it alot more then the larger deeper paddling pools. They prefer just running in and out of it, making huge splashes and sitting down in it very briefly 😂 they have more fun with the hose to be honest.
Washing the car (I say washing* loosely)
Having big toy clear outs & taking to the local hospital.
Sure there's more 🤔
We also love to go wildlife hunting and spot the steam trains!
We have a National Trust subscription which is great value and only a couple of trips in a year get more than our money back, so we do quite a few trips, especially over the nice weather, to enjoy the grounds and have a picnic. This means we get a nice day out, everyone gets fresh air and exercise, they often have kids activities and trails and it only costs us the petrol.
When is rainy day table games and crafting is our life saver. Also boys enjoy cooking and baking. It's always turns out as messy fun,so after all done boys help to tidy up.
Another fun for boys working on their bikes and quads...putting some WD-40 where is needed,washing and polishing quads.
one of my things I like to do, is sit all the kiddies at the table and make fruit and vegetable butterflies and shapes. Gets them eating their 5 a day and good fun too!!
The boys love the local park (which is also a excuse to walk the dog) and we try to go one day a week as it’s exercise for us all.
I have recently learnt the art of baking and cooking so we make fairy cakes, rice crispy and cornflake cakes together and decorate your own pizzas which always go down a treat.
the boys love playing in the back garden and we’ve tried to make it as stimulating as possible for them.
we also go to the local museum which has a bug display that my oldest is fascinated with.
