Looking for cheap ways to entertain your kids? Then, consider this round-up of fun crafts and recipes:
If having the kids home makes your house feel like a three-ring circus, you may as well make it official. Fashion a pair of coffee can stilts for each kiddo. Then set your stilt-walkers loose for a day of circus-themed fun.
2. Felt Board
Turn scraps of felt into a fun felt board that's guaranteed to entertain for hours both at home and on road trips. You can make as many felt accessories as you can dream up!
Pinwheels are fun to play with, but they're even more fun to make. Grab some paper, pencils and pins; and make your own pinwheels. Then, enjoy an afternoon outdoors playing with them.
4. Homemade Popsicles
Have a drawer or container full of crayon stubs? Then you've got the start to a fun project. Work alongside your kids to turn those long-neglected crayons into brand new crayons.
7. Garden Rocks
Go on a nature walk to collect interesting rock specimens. Then, hand your kids some paint and a brush, and let them go to work creating their very own garden rocks.
8. Homemade Soaps
Stickers are fun, but kids sure go through them in a hurry. Work together to create a big batch of homemade stickers, and you'll always have plenty on hand.
