What to do with kids?  Is that a question that every parent, caregiver and teacher has asked themselves at one time!  In answering the question what to do with kids, Kids Activities Blog went searching for some of our favorite and unique kids activities.  We thought they should be fun, easy to do, not require purchases of new toys and something we hadn’t thought of!

Thankfully, help was close…we had 150+ fun activity suggestions for what to do with kids linked up last week in our weekly kids meme, It’s Playtime.  Below are just a few of the ideas that inspired us!
