Inspiring Ideas to Help Unplug Your Kids

Children rely on video games more than ever before so it's not easy to come up with new ideas to amuse them.  Here are a few activities that will ignite their creativity:

  1. Make a Personal Puzzle - Cut an old photo into various different pieces and have them put it back together again.

  2. Egg & Spoon Race - Give your children a spoon and an egg and see how quickly they can cross the finish line without dropping it.

  3. Build a Fort - Drape blankets over chairs to create a cool fort.  Once they're comfortable in their new abode, drop by with some 'fort warming' snacks.

  4. Cache In - Geocaching is a real-world, outdoor treasure hunting game!  Participants register online and then try and find the hidden cache with the help of a GPS device.

  5. And...Action! - Putting on a play is a great way to exercise a child's imagination.  They can take turns writing, acting, designing costumes and even filming.

It's often the simple things that stand out in a child's memory and sharing these special times with them will allow you to feel like a kid again too!  Keep a special diary to record fun conversations and always make sure to have a camera on hand so you can treasure the moments forever.
