Start a Journal - Kids Free Activity Idea of the Day

No matter what your kids age, have your kids practice their writing by starting a journal. They can practice letters, numbers or write about things they are doing over the summer.  All you need is a simple notebook or some paper that you can just staple together. 

They can also add pictures or scribbles if they are toddlers.

Adventures in journaling shares some free printables if you think your kids will like a fill in the blank type.  Sections include items such as to do lists, memories, recent things learned, and more.  The site offers both color and black and white versions.

Flashlight Tag - Kids Free Activity Idea of the Day

Try playing flashlight tag.  It is just like regular tag, but instead of running around and tagging friends out by touching them you touch them with the flashlight.

Make sure to find a space inside or outside that is dark enough for the flashlight beam to show well and that has enough hiding spaces.

You can either have one person be it and hold the flash light or everyone can have their own flashlights.

You can also play against a wall if you want the kids to wind down or have a smaller space.

Wash the Car - Kids Free Activity Idea of the Day

Get the kids outside and have them wash the car.  They will love getting wet and soapy and helping you in the process.  They can even wash neighbors cars too.  In the end you will have a clean car and some probably really wet kids.

Play Bored Games - Kids Free Activity Idea of the Day

Dust off the old games and have a fun game day (especially if the weather is bad outside or you just need some quiet time.)  This is also a great way to have deeper conversations with kids since they will be focused on the game.

Check rummage sales for some really great classic games at great discounted prices.  Your library may also have games that you can check out for free.

Does your family have a favorite game?  Share it in the comments.
