I also used to bring home giant cardboard boxes and let he kids paint them, color them, tape them together to make a tunnel, Make a playhouse, make a boat.
I would park our car across the bottom of the driveway. Then we would use sidewalk chalk to make streets, with stop signs, yield signs, parking spots and gather all of the vehicles and let the kids drive around. I was the police and directed traffic. Then we would trade and let the kids be the police..
At lunch we would play restaurant and the kids would make a menu then be the waters then be the cooks..
We would play grocery store. take all of the can goods and fruit and pretend we were t the store.. the kids worked at the store as the can man (shelf stockers) the cashiers, the baggers..
We would set up our tent in the back yard and camp out in our own back yard.. Or take a nap out there..
Make smores on the grill.
Play hide and seek with stuffed animals inside the house.
Go on a treasure hunt while taking a walk in the neighborhood.
Dance really fast, really slow. Wear our clothes backwards. Make our own movies.
Turn off all of the lights, close all of the blinds, move the sofa to the center of the living room like a movie theater.Make popcorn and watch a video we have never seen.
Play Simon says, red light , green light.. Let the kids be the caller.
