There are all kinds of different ways to do this if you use your imagination. Kids will willingly try new things if it looks fun and entertaining. Usually, you can just take a box of crayons and some paper and they will color and draw all day.

Another way to fill their time is with some colorful construction paper, scissors, and glue or paste. Most kids love
cutting out shapes and pasting them to cardboard or other papers. You can also use glitter and beads to add to the fun.

One of great activities for kids is painting. Kids love to paint. It can be a change from crayons, and they can even be more creative.

You can always find some projects from craft stores. They have many different types of jewlery making kits that include all the supplies you need.

Puzzles are another activity that they can enjoy. Puzzles are not only fun, but they can be educational and challenging as well. They also have 3D puzzles that can entertain for hours and you can display them on shelves or tables when they are finished.

Everyone loves board games, and it is something you can enjoy with your kids too and make it a family night of fun.
Flash cards and word games are not too expensive to buy and will keep their young minds active and busy while teaching them at the same time.

It does not take much imagination or money to find some kids activities to entertain your children whether it is a rainy afternoon, or at a birthday party, they are bound to have fun!

What kids can? /kidscan.htm /kidscan.htm#comments Fri, 22 Apr 2011 13:40:58 +0000 Marcus /?p=30 What kids can do these days is amazingly more complex than is often evident. The new generation has the world under their fingertips at the keyboard and on television. They are masters of games and technology from very young. They are able to have friendships with tens or even thousands of people worldwide before they can even drive. Nothing is completely outside of their grasp and everything is being offered to them by the world at large.

This is frustrating to parents and adults in the world today. What kids can do today is nothing like the generation before them. There are more boundaries that are being broken down morally and socially than ever before. They are aware of the world and yet still full of questions. Still there is one very important thing to remember above all else, that they are still kids.

What kids can do is not lacking in the same need for guidance and wisdom, as always. The kids of today need as much help as the kids of any time period. In these adults can rest easy, for they still have a place within kids™ lives. What kids can do, we can help them do.
