Rainy Day Fun is great for those times when kids are stuck indoors. It can apply to anytime, really, when you need a quick idea to keep kids busy when they can’t be out-of-doors.

Let’s Take the Train — at Home!

      No Comments on Let’s Take the Train — at Home!

I just loved this post on Mommy Ever After (http://mommyeverafter.wordpress.com/2014/11/21/all-aboard/) where Rebecca Fox Starr wrote about her daughter Belle. What a great example of KIDFUN! Here is this resourceful little girl, looking for something creative to do and what is it? Make a train station right in her home! “All Aboard!” as her mom called it. Rebecca explained it this… Read more »

Homemade Badminton

      No Comments on Homemade Badminton

It was my granddaugther Jaclyn’s first birthday party and Hope, her mom, came up with such great ideas. (Do you think she was raised on KIDFUN?!) She had kids in the backyard playing homemade Badminton, like Sari is doing here. Actually, there was no net but that was fine! It’s simple to make the racket. Take a paper plate and… Read more »

I visited Ryan’s kindergarten class at Congregation M’kor Shalom yesterday and thought this was a perfect KIDFUN idea that her wonderful teacher, Mrs. Rothman, was playing. She said — “Let’s all sing our Good morning song,” but she started with this game. The students had to follow her, make the same motions she made. What a tease! First Mrs. Rothman… Read more »

The girls put down throw pillows and afghans and it’s kinda’ their bed — EVEN when company comes! So, they said, “Grammy, come on… Read more »

Here is Jessica Heisen helping Ryan (and Sari, Molly and lots more kids who came later). The first part of this project is baking sugar cookies together. If you’re like… Read more »

Stick Letters

I think I wrote about this kind of thing before — but it’s always fun to take “stuff” and make letters out of it. Look at this! Ryan took our roles of gift wrap and said, “Let’ make a K for KIDFUN, Grammy!” … Great idea! We also made a T, an F, an X — any other letter with… Read more »

Board Games like Philly-opoly are Fun

      No Comments on Board Games like Philly-opoly are Fun

  As the holiday season approaches, remember that good ol’ standby — board games. They are great fun for the whole family and an “alternative” to technology! Funny to call THESE an alternative! Okay, here’s a plug for a game I’m proud to have helped develop — it’s Philly-opoly! Lots of people in our city voted on the best properties… Read more »
