The only thing more unpredictable than kids is the weather. When the sun is shining it feels like anything can happen, inside or out. Everyone’s moods are a little lighter, their spirits a little higher. But when the storm clouds gather and the rain begins to fall, parents everywhere start to panic. Unless it’s a school day, it means they’ll be stuck inside….with children! What on earth will they do all day long?
Nothing is more headache-inducing than whiny children complaining that they’re bored. Your hometown or city may have museums and play spaces and galleries a go-go, but if you’re cooped up in your own home, you’ll need to turn your home into a real fun house. Looking for fun and fabulous things to do with your little ones? Here are 15 awesome activities to keep the cabin fever at bay.
Unlike a treasure hunt, which involves making up clues and hiding them around the house, a scavenger hunt only requires a bit of time to make a list, gather your materials and plant things for players to find.
You can make your own checklist, including house hold items or even activities, or you can download ideas from the internet. Either way, a scavenger hunt can last as long as you like – or as long as you need.
