Fun Box Activity

What to do….the wiggles were running through the legs and arms of the kids today. My daughter’s seat had said enough and she was dancing in her seat. The boys were just not able to focus any longer. It
wasn’t a hard day today, and a quick few jumps in the trampoline wasn’t going to do the trick today. I try to have reserves of “fun” activities to take our minds off of learning and take us back to the reason why we homeschool, spending time together. But I was feeling pressure to finish that day’s assigned tasks.
Then I remember a card game I just picked up in the Playing card aisle at Toys R Us.

I pulled out the game and let each child choose a color and then we put them all together. At first the boys were puzzled about doing silly things listed on the cards. The girls loved it right away. After switching the cards around a few times we got a lot of wiggles out and we were able to finish all we needed to get done. This is a great get up and move addition to a reserve of “fun” tricks!!!
