Balloons

Get a pack of the long balloons and try to make balloon animals. We are still mastering this art.

Science experiments

Mixing vinegar and baking soda starts a chemical reaction that produces carbon dioxide, or CO2, and water, basically its going to fizz and kids love this little experiment.alt

Fishing in the sink

Mix in some dish-washing liquid to the sink water, put some little plastic straws in (chop one straw in to 3 pieces) and pretend they are fishes, get a mug and let your kids try to catch the 'fishes' using only the mug.

Hope this will give you some ideas for those days when your stuck for thoughts on activities to do.
