Good ol' Coloring

Have you run out of ideas?

Have your kids pulled your entire house apart and re-purposed everything because of this Blog?

Get your crayons and colored pencils and do some coloring.
Just keep it exciting. 

Its so easy even a T-Rex can do it... 

Now i'm not telling you to go buy a ridiculously expensive Halloween costume to do things around the house with, but this is hilarious.

Things like this are what your kids will remember, things they will laugh about when they are older, and things they will share with their own kids, and judging by the total lack of surprise on Mia's face here, these things happen a little too often...

Remember, they are only young once, make things funny. 

Sure you could sit down and color with them any time, but why not put a cardboard box on your head or wear a costume while doing it.

Fort Time!

Hey look, there's a disaster in my living room,
At least it's a fun one.

Fort building is my favorite thing to do with my small humans, we spend a ton of time finding ways to take nice things and destroy them for momentary satisfaction.

Us adults built forts inside and out as children, it really never gets old. It's in our nature as people to construct, manipulate, and invent.

Just make sure to try to stave off the urge to keep things in order and hop to it.

Let your kids just pile things around until they find something that works and watch the gears turn.

 You can use just about anything... Pillows, blankets, cardboard, couches, curtains, parts of the wood floor (it's really easy to pull them up), vinyl siding, the dining set, parts of the neighbors house,  you know, simple stuff.
