Are you running out of ways to entertain your kids? Feeling a bit overwhelmed with all of the suggestions out there? We're here to help with activities for each day of the week.

Sunday

Family Fun Day - Spend the day as a family. Go for a bike ride, a walk around the neighborhood, cook dinner together, and end the day with a family board game.

Monday

Create a TV Show – Work as a team to create shows you can share with family and friends. Try a cooking show or an arts and crafts tutorial, host a talk show, record your older child reading a book and make a story hour, or make up a dance and go through the steps to teach it to your audience. The options are endless! 

Tuesday

Puzzles Galore – Work on a puzzle and see how many you can complete at the end of the month. When you finish a puzzle, reach out to your neighbors and trade to complete a new one.

Wednesday

International Night – Choose a recipe from your favorite international cuisine and decorate the table. Take a virtual tour of some landmarks in that country or learn about traditional attire. 

Thursday

Declutter and Organize – This may not be a favorite of the kids, but it will feel great in the end. Pick a room or space in your house to organize and declutter. Make piles of things to keep, donate, or throw out. 

Friday

Movie Night - Choose a movie your whole family will enjoy, pop some popcorn, and curl up under a blanket.

Saturday

Holiday Fun - Celebrate a different holiday each Saturday! Dress up, make special dinners, and do special crafts for each holiday.
