Kiddie Korner

We all have days where the kiddos are restless and we need a way to keep them occupied. Here is a list of my favorite go-to ideas to keep the peace…and hopefully quiet, on those days when the little prince and princess need something to do.


  • Whip up a batch of ooblek and challenge your young scientist to define its state of matter.
  • Let the kids raid your closet and put on a fashion show.
  • Build, create, and invent with STEM-inspired toys.
  • Play “Simon Says” or “Follow the Leader.”
  • Grab a deck of cards and teach your kids the simple joys of Rummy, Spit, or Slapjack.
  • Gather the family to enjoy a story podcast.
  •  Make your own instruments; then, lead a marching band parade through the living room.

  • Cuddle up with a pile of books.
  • Keep your heart rate up with Wii Fit or Xbox One games.
  • Make math fun with these amazing math apps.
