Kids Activities: Arts
Write up your own version of mad libs focusing on an event in mom’s life or story she has told you and leave blanks to be filled in.
Take a look at this example.
Place clues around the house. When mom finds them, she will get a clue to the next location. At the end, have mom find her ultimate prize, a coupon book for things you can do for mom, do the dishes, give her a massage, a daily hug etc.
Here is a link to some clues you can use.
Materials: Bedsheets, four chairs, clothespins or binder clips, pillows and blankets, a flashlight
Step One: Find a bed sheet and four chairs. Place the sheet over the chairs to create a roof. Then use clothespins, binder clips, rope, or really great knots to keep the sheet taut and in place.
Step Two: Grab some pillows, extra blankets and a furry friend to make your fort cozier.
Step Three: Turn off the lights and turn on a flashlight. Use your hands to create animals and shapes.
