Day 3 of Spring Break

So here we are on Day 3 of our Spring Break. Needless to say the kids are getting a little restless so I need to find something for them to do. Since it is a nice day outside (and we are stuck in an apartment) I think we are going to go outside and have a Rock Band......ok well its us three attempting to make music with a few different sizes of rocks. I have done this once before and it kept us busy for about 2 hours. We each took turns being the music director, the director was in charge of deciding who uses which rocks and what kind of a beat they should make. I loved it just because it was very time consuming, and FREE!!!

If you are not into making a ROCK BAND, here is a great craft idea for the bored kids.

Making Rock Bugs.....

Pick some big and small rocks

Get some craft paint

paint brushes

Once you have all your supplies let the kids have at it, they can paint their rocks to look like bugs or anything they desire, let their imagination run wild.

The best part is if you let them do this while they are outdoors there will be hardly any mess to clean up.

Here is a cheap fun lunch idea

make your childs favorite sandwich then take any shape cookie cutter and cut out their sandwhich.

keep the outer ring of the sandwich, place fruit, crackers,pretzals or any other solid food you serve for lunch.

This makes for a fun lunch with no extra money involved. The best part is many times kids get bored with the same old sandwich,but when you make it look different it somehow becomes a totally different sandwich.
