Family Activities When Kids Are Home From School

Are your kids home from school today? Mine are. And whenever I’m home with all three kids, I feel this insane #momguilt. I feel guilty for not having enough activities for them to do. I feel guilty for letting them play videos games or watch TV (which is all they really want to do).

So, instead of feeling guilty all day, I’m planning on hanging in that in between. We’re going to do a little of everything so I can feel like all my bases are covered. I have some fun projects and activities in mind (see below). And I have some rest scheduled in as well, because lord knows we all need it.

We forget that our kids need rest too on their days off. They’re in school eight hours a day, plus extracurriculars afterward. Sometimes they need a day to just veg out.

Below is a list of ideas to keep your day off fun and family focused 😊

  • Art projects
  • Board games
  • Forts
  • Baking
  • Walk to the park
  • Playground
  • Errands
  • Picnic
  • Movie in bed
  • Local kids museum
  • Cartoons
  • Coloring
  • Sidewalk chalk
  • Dance party
  • Out to eat
  • Science experiments
