March Break is a time for day camps, movies, swimming, skating, lunch dates and fun afternoons with friends. But it can also be a week of whining, squabbling, boredom and feeling like you’re on house arrest.
If you’re having trouble filling those longggg hours until school starts again, here are 60 free indoor ideas to keep your kids entertained.
1. Put them in a bubble bath, turn off the lights and dump in some glow sticks. It’s the G-rated version of those foam parties in nightclubs.
2. Don’t have any glow sticks? Google a recipe for homemade bath paints made with cornstarch, shampoo and food colouring.
3. Out of cornstarch or food colouring? Give them a can of shaving cream and let them have fun squirting the walls of the tub and making foamy pictures with it.
4. If all else fails, toss measuring cups, measuring spoons and colanders into the tub with them. If someone pees in the cup, the items become permanent tub toys and you get to buy new ones.
