Brighten up a rainy day with a color treasure hunt! Chasing Cheerios got a great deal on these little totes but you could just as easily use gift bags in the colors of your choosing. This would work well as a party game for the younger set too :)
This activity brings back a lot of memories! My sister and I had a neighborhood newspaper when we were about ten years old but ours was written on a typewriter and we had to wait for our dad to make copies at his office before we could staple them together and deliver them. Now you can create a full color edition in a publishing program on your computer! Read all about how this family newspaper was done at Lucy's Tales from Home!
Creating placemats from your children's artwork is such a wonderful way to be able to enjoy it everyday! And, if you're looking for the perfect grandparent gift I think you can stop right here :) Let's Explore has the details for this surprisingly easy project.
