This is a great activity for older children. Write out a script or use one from a favorite book or movie. Assign parts and let the kids put on their own production. They can even charge family members an “admission fee” to watch the show.
10. Have a scavenger hunt
This is a fun activity for all ages. Write out a list of items that can be found around the house or hide objects around the house and make a list for the kids to find them. The first one to find all the objects wins a prize.
