Keeping kids busy while they are at home during the warm summer months is a challenge for any parent, older sibling or babysitter. It’s not easy to fill an 8 hour+ day with fun activities for your little ones. Thankfully, some brilliant people online came up with some fun (and safe) ways to keep children occupied for less than $10.
Don’t spend a fortune taking them to the movies, swimming pool or mall every day (although that can be fun). Try some of these cheap, but awesome, ideas. You might enjoy them yourself, too!
1.) Make roads for toy cars by using colored tape on carpet.
2.) You can also use tape to create some oversized, fun games.
3.) Turn your driveway into a fun target game using chalk and sponges.
4.) Chalk is also a great way to play dress-up without dolls.
5.) Exploding paint bags can be a messy, fun art project for your kids.
6.) Use plastic container lids, glue and food coloring for a neat painting craft.
7.) Have extra bubble wrap? Make stomp paintings.
