Activity Pack No. 1, Home
Grands coming for a visit? Scrambling for things to do? Here are some ideas for kids under 10 that work for me. Whether they come for several days, a weekend, or overnight, make a plan!!
I am on a mission to get children away from screens, devices, phones, TV, movies, and anything else that encourages them to zone out. Our children do not know how to problem solve and social skills are dwindling. Teach them how to have a conversation! What a novel idea!
These activities have been compiled from my own ideas, downloadable free PDF items that I found online, and many other things I have found that work when you hear that familiar whine, "What are we gonna do now?"
My grands love origami, folding paper airplanes, drawing, playing with clay, blocks, board games, and many other activities.
Check out my new BLOG—Grands on the Run for great ideas and activities to do with your grandchildren!
Activity Pack No. 2, Road Trip
Are we there yet? Bored kids, long car rides. Not a great combination. Try this set of activities, fill a Travel Bag, create a Trip Journal, and change the car dynamics!
Traveling with grands can be challenging. But it can also be fun. I have compiled lots of free activities from a variety of sources to create a great pack for your trip. And I know they work. At least for kids 12 and under.
Games, crafts, activities, and things everyone will enjoy, young and old as you travel.
