Spin the Day Away
Fidget spinners are really popular with school-aged kids right now. Why not invite the kids to create a spinner of their own? They will love the invitation to design and build a fidget spinner that is a one of a kind toy. These require some simple hardware like a bearing and a washer as well as a few common craft supplies.
Make a Memory Game
It is important to keep kids learning and using their brains in the summer. Regression is common when school resumes. Memory games are a great way to keep the kids sharp and entertained with a game they created themselves! All you really need are a handful of matching pictures. You can theme your memory game to suit your kid's interests.
Give It Some Momentum
A friendly family game of frisbee is a fun way to stay active together. Making your own frisbee with recycled materials takes the game to a new level of awesome. Finding out which plastic lids float and fly the best will make the craft a fun way to learn about the Bernoulli principle which makes a frisbee fly.
Bouncing Here, Bouncing There
Bouncy balls are fun for all kids! But, there is no reason to head out in search of a little toy vending machine! You can make them at home, and make them as colorful and big as you like! This recipe makes it so easy that there is no reason not to make a few and bounce the day away!
Playing Games Rocks
If you have virtually no craft supplies on hand and need a quick fix, go pick up some rocks! 9 to be exact! Paint on side of the rocks with x's, paint o's on the opposite sides. There you have a DIY Tic Tac Toe Game!
