6 Fun Activities to Do with Your Kids

Looking for something fun to do WITH your kids after school?  Here are 6 fun activities to do with your kids that were shared on last week’s After School Link-Up.  These activities are geared for ages 5+, but with help, preschool kids can join in the fun, too.  Whether it’s art, crafts, music, or science, it’s always great memory making when you do activities WITH your child!!

6 Fun Activities to Do With Your Kids

1.  Make Rainbow Sea Shells with your kids like The Educators’ Spin On It did.  I love the colors!  These are great as they are, or used in a sensory bin, or even for making some homemade jewelry!

2.  If you have a dinosaur lover, then you absolutely must make these Dinosaur Ice Eggs from Teaching Mama.  They would be great in the bath tub or water table.  Or in the pool this summer!

3.  Make your own simple panpipes using straws like Tiny Tapping Toes!  I love it when I can create something with stuff we already have laying around the house!
