I am a mom of 4 kids(11,10,8 and 6)who taught preschool for 2 years.
I hope you can use this blog as a resource to find fun activities to do with your children. Some ideas are new, while others have been around a while. This is a place where I can store all our activities without having to actually have to store them in my attic. I hope you find some fun and easy ideas.
I found this idea on the Family Fun Web site. It is a Wish List for 2008 for kids to do. I put five different headings on a piece of paper and then numbered 1-4 under each. My headings were Places I Want To Go, Books I Want to Read, Movies I Want to Watch, Foods I Want to Try, and Things I Want to Learn to Do. I did this with my 8 year old, 6 years old and 4 year old. It turned out to be a real interesting project. Some of Cody's answers were: Places To GO- Fishing, Books To Read- Sharks and Bats, Movies to Watch- Batman, Under dog and Super Babies . Foods to Try- Indian Slap Jacks and he Wants to Learn to cook.
Caity's- Places to Go- Mall, Park, Fishing and the Movies, Books To Read- Dogs, Cats and Fish. Foods to Try-Peanut cookies, tomatoes and Tomato Cake. And things she wants to learn about- Books, Bionicles, crafts(of course), and Jesus and God.
Colton's list- Books to Read- Batman and Underdog. Things he wanted to Learn was to Read and add numbers, Foods to try- Tomatoes.
I really would recommend this idea, it was fun and it gave me some ideas on what to do for this upcoming year. I definitely will let them do more cooking and have my husband take them fishing even more. And I also know what books to get at the library. I hope you try it, if you do let me know some of the answers.
