If you've already given games a go (Bug Balance is a favourite), survived the inclement weather with your Nature Bag (gets them outside and away from the TV, as shown) and have already put together all the activity kits in the house (have you tried the Green Science Robobug from a pop can?) - then perhaps you'd like to try this.
It's a simple craft with minimal tidy up. And it's timely - a way to celebrate St. Patrick's Day since the kids won't be doing it at school this year. Our girls really enjoyed it. Hope your kids do too!
- Cut shamrock shapes out of sandpaper. Use different grains of sandpaper and cut the shamrocks in several different sizes.
- Tape the shamrocks to a table.
- Show your child how to place his paper over the shamrock and rub with the side of a crayon to get a Saint Patrick's Day design.
