I know the situation isn’t good, but who says we can’t make some memories with our cute little homebound kids while we’re all home waiting for things to get back to normal. Here are 5 Fun Simple Things to Do with Your Kids over the next few days.

Some of these treats may have a holiday theme to them, but I’m sure your kids will help you customize them to the theme they want to celebrate. I know the gingerbread playdough scream Christmas, but the dough smells so amazing you should make it and give the kids Easter or everyday cookie cutters and let their imagination run wild. I’m at home with Alan right now and I want to make the dough just so he’ll have something to play with when he gets a little bored! lol

  • Like I said a minute ago, Alan and I are home alone and my grandkids are in a different state. That’s not going to stop me from being a grandma. I’m going to make a batch of this for each one and mail it to them. I know they’ll have fun getting a gift from Nana that they can play with.
