Things I Would Love to Do With My Kids This Weekend
The weather is changing, the entire family is catching some new cough or sneeze every few days and this weekend’s events are a little slim. I’ve found a few outings I would recommend for the weekend but I wanted to do something a little different and talk about fun things I would do with my little ones if we didn’t already have plans! Here we go…..
Go see the Peanuts Movie (again)
So we had the opportunity to see Peanuts in 3D and the kids LOVED it! The trailers were awesome to include Alvin and the Chipmunks, Norm of the North, The Good Dinosaur and Kung Fu Panda 3!
Start Thinking about Thanksgiving and Create a Thanksgiving Craft
Check out my Tots and Holidays Pintrest Board to get some ideas. We just made a mummy turkey using a turkey cutout and toilet paper, needless to say, it was a fun family project!
Rent or Buy Disneys’s “Inside Out” or Dreamworks “Home” for a Watch Party
These two movies are two of the best family animated films that we’ve seen in a while. I think I was more excited than the kids for the DVD release! Check out this Inside Out Party created by my friend Misty over at Frosted Events!
Visit the Local Library and Check-out some new Books
If you’ve been following my Instagram and Twitter Page, you’d notice that I’ve been sharing the books we’ve been reading. We are Raising Readers and always looking for new books to explore!
Go to Chuck E Cheese’s Early in the Morning and Try Out the New Games
Weekends can be a bit much at Chuck E Cheese’s but if you go when they first open you can avoid the rush and enjoy the many new games they have! I shared my new favorite game for preschoolers on my Instagram page.
Stay Home and Do Nothing
Sometimes it’s okay to do nothing during the weekend. Some of our best weekends happen when we pop in a few movies, kickback and eat whatever’s in the house!
Just in case you didn’t like my ideas, see my picks for Local Events!
