The Weekend Planner Sept 5-7

This weekend is going to bring some rain in on Saturday with Tropical Storm Hanna moving up the East Coast. This may be a good time depending on how extreme the weather to do some stuff indoors and stay close to home. The storm should have moved out by Sunday so the weekend shouldn't be a total washout.

Some Ideas for Indoor Activities could be an indoor obstacle course this doesn't need to be anything extravagant some chairs to run in between or climb under, and some pillows to jump over can be all you need. To add some incentive use a stopwatch to time their tries. Board and Computer Games and Puzzles can be a good activity as well. Some of our favorites have been Candyland, Mousetrap, The Matching Game, and Dino-Bingo.

Build a Fort with Items such as Pillows, Chairs Blankets, Sheets and some Clothes pins or whatever you can stack or drape something over. Kids love to build them and they really inspire creativity and learning through the process of coming up with different and sometimes elaborate constructions.

Cuddle up with a book: The Cat in the Hat is a good rainy day story ("The Sun did not shine. It was too wet to Play. So we sat in the house All that cold, cold,wet day.") or check out my eBook Timmy the Tug and Billy the Barge.

Create something - Break out the paints, Crayons, Playdough, instruments or whatever tools you have to explore you and your childs creativity. It doesn't need to be elaborate Just fun.
One thing that younger kids usually enjoy, as long as they don't mind getting their hands messy (I know some kids hate that) is finger painting. For a slightly different spin try doing hand prints but put one color in one hand and another color in the other then have your child rub their hands together like magic you have a new color for example try Blue and Yellow to make green. Neat way to teach primary and secondary colors.

Watch a favorite video or check out The Little Mermaid 3 a cute Prequel to the Original Little Mermaid with some old favorite characters like Sebastian and Flounder as well as some new ones like Benjamin the Manatee and a new villainess Marina DelRay.

If the weather is not too threatening you may want to try some in-store activities
Some Saturday morning indoor options could be Storytime at Barnes and Noble ,
or take in a Kids Movie with the popcorn club

Home Depot - Kids Clinics
The Home Depot's Kids Workshops This months project is a paper football game.
The workshops teach children do-it-yourself skills and tool safety, while at the same time helping to instill a sense of accomplishment. Additionally, this fun time allows for quality one-on-one time between adults and children.In addition to the newly constructed project kit, each child receives a kid-sized orange apron, similar to The Home Depot associates' aprons, and an achievement pin.
