Got extra kids home today? It can be a hassle trying to come up with something that suits your preschooler and your big kid. Here are a few ideas to try:
Take a walk or discover a new park-I mentioned a few good options in this post. The playgrounds in my Top 5 Playgrounds Post also offer fun for tots to tweens (will your teenagers really be happy with Anything?)
Though they’re likely to be crowded, the museums in Tacoma’s museum district each have attractions that will appeal to kids of different ages. Even older kids will get a kick out of watching the glass blowing at the Museum of Glass, and little ones will just be wowed!
Take everyone for a milkshake at the Antique Sandwich company in Ruston by the zoo. Laid back, hippie vibe with amazing milkshakes for everyone and toys in the back for the younger set.
Make the Family Fun Magazine recipe for Cornstarch Creatures. Just as easy as playdough but a little more sophisticated. Could easily keep grade school kids entertained for an afternoon if you have some decorating supplies to throw in the mix.
Don’t forget the old-school mom standby, “Go find something to do or you can clean your room!”
