Great ideas for activities with kids
Getting kids cooking and familiar with the kitchen is a life lesson they all need. Besides it’s fun to cook with them. You just never know what crazy creation they are going to come up with when you let them take the lead (with supervision) in the kitchen.
Before any ingredients start to fly, sit down with your kids and plan out what they are going to cook. Using the internet and cookbooks designed especially for kids should give you a large selection of kid-friendly recipes to choose from.
Why should the kids have all the fun, right?

Yard scavenger hunts are one of those activities that you can throw together in just a couple minutes, and it will keep the kids busy for a while. It will also get them outside away from the electronics, as well as leave them with no excuse to utter “I’m bored”.
To get started, create a scavenger hunt list for them with items that they will find in your yard. Then give them the list, a pen or pencil, and a basket to hold what they find; and send them on their way.
What to Put in the Scavenger Hunt
Beat the heat this summer with popsicles you can make at home. They take no time at all, and depending on the ingredients you use, you can make homemade popsicles for cheaper than you can buy them in the store.
To make the popsicles you need two things: a liquid and a container to freeze it in.
You can use any liquid you want. Carbonated liquids work okay, but I find that they don’t freeze very solid when I try to use them.
