Hello friends!! My little ones are home for the summer now, which if you are anything like me is super fun and a little stressful all at the same time! I’ve been brainstorming ideas of fun and easy activities that I can do with my two, four, and five year old littles, that we can all make or prepare together! We have had so much fun trying out a bunch of these kids activities, and then it’s great because after they are prepared the kids will spend a bunch of time playing with them and I can get in a quick shower or some lunch! Haha! You Mamas of young kids KNOW what I am talking about!

These activities are totally NOT season sensitive and would work just as well in the winter time if your kids are cooped up inside freezing cold! Most of the activities I picked cost little to nothing to execute, and use many supplies that you will have on hand already!

You ready for some great ideas?!

1.) Homemade Playdough
