Here are 10 fun things that you can do easily, not many materials required. Actually, towards the bottom you might need a few more things to make it work. Also, you might need some outside room.
This one is super fun to do but make sure to do it on a wood floor. I got this idea from Miranda and you can read about how to do it HERE. This is a great thing to do on a hot day and would make a good reading fort.
It is fun sometimes just to grab your camera and go outside to take some pictures. It’s fun to make a list of some things to photograph and try to get a picture for every one (flower, animal, water, etc.). Or if you don’t have much space to go outside try taking pictures inside!
ATCs are super fun to make and all you need is some art supplies -even a plain ol’ pencil will work- and cardstock along with some imagination. Go HERE to find out what they are and HERE to see how to do them.
Or a top hat. Or even a bird on your head! All you need is a black board or white board, and either chalk or dry-erase markers. Oh, and also you need a friend or some one else to help you.
Stand against the black/white board while your friend draws antlers on top of your head. Have them take a picture. You can do lots of things this way!
Get a shallow pot or container and put dirt on the bottom. Then add moss and other small plants or grasses (even weeds!) to your garden. Hobby Lobby and other stores have little chairs and tables and things you can put in to spruce it up. If you make it in a tank and have a screen to put on top, this could be a nice home for some animal.
If you find some smooth and funny shaped rocks, make rock buddies! Sometimes it takes a little while to figure out something it looks like, but then all you have to do is paint! I have recently made a hawk, a frog, and a cat.
Oooh! This is a great thing to do on a rainy day. A nice annoying drizzle works the best.
Doodle with washable markers on a piece of paper. A design looks the best, but drawings work too. After you finish your drawing, set it out side while it’s raining. If it’s pouring buckets your whole drawing could wash away in five minutes, so be careful.
Go HERE for my post on a few tricks.
Yup! It’s fun to find a few snails (the bigger, the easier to paint) and paint them! Acrylic works well. You can Mod Podge them afterward. Even some polymer clay works to make little cases. Just be careful not to get paint on the soft part of them. After you are done painting, put your snails in the middle of a big circle and see who gets out first.
If you have the caterpillars, this is easy! The ones we are raising now are black swallowtail caterpillars which can be found on parsley, dill, I think Queen Anne’s Lace, and carrot tops. They are beautiful caterpillars and beautiful butterflies. All you have to do is give them some sticks to make a chrysalis on and some fresh parsley, dill, etc.
You can also find Monarch caterpillars on milkweed around September.
I got all 10 done! It took me a little bit, but I got it done! Do you think you might do any of these sometime? Which one sounds the most fun to you?
Well, TTFN (Ta-Ta For Now)!
