February is family fun month

I don’t know if it actually is “family fun month,” but February, despite it’s shorter than normal length, has always felt so long. So cold. So wintery. Unlike March, the promise of spring isn’t right around the corner. It is the month where you really begin to feel cabin fever.

So this month I thought I would post everyday with a different idea of things to do with your children. Projects, crafts, or ideas that you can use at your own house, most likely with things you already have, or can easily pick up on your next trip to the grocery store. And if you have children you know you are always at the grocery store. A month of ideas to keep the boredom at bay, at least for an hour or two.

I frequently get email from people asking me what I do with my younger children when the older ones are doing schoolwork. How do I keep them occupied? I will be sharing some of these ideas this month.

Join me in reclaiming February. No longer will it be the month that you want to run naked screaming out of the house. Now it will be family fun month. And we will have fun, dammit.

    How much do I love you for this super timely topic? Much. Much. Much.

    I’m running out of ideas over here and it is fricking FREEZING in Chicago. Soon, I will give her a spoon and let her use all of my empty wine bottles as a xylophone.

    you are wonderful. Oh how I need this right now.

    Do you want to come here and do the fun activities with my children, though? please?

    Thanks for inspiring me. I had originally thought about getting a babysitter and going on a date with my husband this weekend to escape the children. Now I think we’ll go to the zoo instead (we’re in Texas, so cold has a whole different meaning here).

    I just came here through a blog of a blog of a blog of a blog of someone else. I think the ideas you have been sharing are awesome. I look forward to reading more from your site and finding time to go through your categories. Neat-o!
