I’ve noticed a lot of… well, complex activities lately. I can’t seem to find just quick, doable and just simple activities to do with the kids.
Everything that I see seems to try to outdo the last and it has escalated so high now that I don’t even want to try!
Do you ever feel like Pinterest is actually trying to stop you from being creative???
So instead, I’m going against the grain (typical me) and am trying to do really simple, easy, no-brainer activities lately. They’re often the biggest hits in our house ironically.
These may seem obvious. Or they may not. But the point is to spark us to do it our kids and to feel uplifted and good about ourselves! You can make it more complex if you like. Or maybe it will spark something else when you do it.
Here’s 15 of most simple activities yet.
- Threaded Fruit Loop Necklace
- Flour Sensory Tray
- Dumpster Diving
- Pom Pom Drop
- Craft Sticks in a Bottle
- Balance Beam
- Paint with Water
- Stacked Canned Food
- Cover a Table to Draw On
- Color Collage
- Walk on Pillows
- Hammer & Tees
- Wash Toys
- Peeling Tape
- Tape Jumping Game
Most every one of those you’ll be able to do right off the bat. I do 90% of our activities with supplies you’re likely to have on hand in your own home. There are a few supplies that I suggest you stock up on. For this list, you’ll want to get these supplies (affiliate links are included for easy reference and to help support Hands On As We Grow), you’ll find you use them a lot for many activities!

How’s that for quick fun today?
