Needless to say, with cold grey clouds outside, and six children trapped inside, I'm scrambling today, for some simple, easy boredom busters. And, not that I'm promoting PopTarts for breakfast (just because we have terrible habits, doesn't mean you should!), but if you're going to eat them anyway, don't miss out on the excellent potential of their packaging.
Not only are the boxes covered in terrific "paper" dolls, and accessories, just waiting to be cut out, and played with...
...but the light weight, foil wrappers, are perfect for racing across the floor. Just cut them into squares, with different pictures on each, so you can tell them apart.
Add a masking tape finish line.
Give each participant a straw, and a foil square.
And, let the races begin! Really, the straws, and finish line are completely optional.
I know we used to buy toys for the children - but I can't remember why.
It's great to be a homeschooler.
