Rainy Day Activity #1 :
Make Lunch a fun way to kill time.
When I was at WalMart the other day, I ran into these Make -n- Bake Pizzas for $5. What kid doesnt like pizza?? I found it in the section where they keep pizza dough, cookie dough, and things of that nature. Rainy days are the longest for our little ones if you dont have things to keep them active...tv gets old QUICK!
This box comes with everything you need to make 4 small personal size cheese pizzas. They do have a pepperoni kit too I believe, but you can get creative and add different cheeses and veggies.
Lay all of your ingredients out on the table and I was going over shapes colors and numbers of the items we were working with to make it a little educational too.
Get your dough...
...add and spread your sauce...
...sprinkle your cheese...
Then throw it in the oven for baby and me!
Baking and cooling time took about 15 minutes. Gave us enough time to clean up his room before lunch, and he was ready for his nap after.
What activities do you do at home with your child that is affordable on most budgets?
