While your kids may love hitting the playground or even a hiking trail when the sun comes out, it’s not always possible due to time and other constraints. However, your home can become a playground when you use a little imagination and the resources you already have at your disposal.
From playing indoor games to making fun treats together, you can pass the time inside until the sun goes down outside. Check out these tips for maximizing your enjoyment if you have to be inside with your children…
Create a Toy Wash
Your kids probably have a lot of plastic toys, and they’ve probably been handled a lot as well. So why not create a sanitation station for them to give them a clean while also occupying them for a while?

Provide an area using towels to let them drip dry afterwards. You might want to put towels under the bin as well so you don’t end up with a big mess.
