      Interesting read.

      Baking cookies sounds yummy. Living in an apartment on the second floor with 100 degree weather sounds like a no. Even with the A/C it gets really hot. California is super bipolar right now and we haven’t found much fun activities that don’t involve going outside in the heat.

      We play board games with them, and we have water balloon fights. My kids love doing both of those. Also, we made a blanket fort in the livingroom and watched a movie.They absolutely loved that. It was a huge blanket fort!! Maybe you could try that? I think they would enjoy that. My kiddos did. We also made tie dye shirts together. They liked that as well.

      great ideas

      I like to make a theme day for my kiddo. For example, we live in the Memphis area, we will have a history day and I will take him to a few activities, like the Sun City and other music museums and end with a milkshake at the Arcade restaurant which is music themed.

      This is easily tailored for all of the different ages and stages of our children.
      We would “eat around the world” in our home. Once or twice a week, each child takes a turn at finding a recipe and doing the research on where it’s from, any interesting tidbits about it. And then we cook it and talk and learn about the culture it’s from. Yes, sometimes it’s American, too but perhaps regional.

      So as toddlers, I would find books to read with them and get them interested in something that way. We would research it together. They would do what meal prep they were capable of. Dinner time would be talking about the meal, the culture, etc.

      As young school-aged children, they would find the books and cuisine on their own, and we would sit together to do the research about it and then cook it together.

      As older kids, they now select something entirely on their own, do the research, and cook it (with supervision.) It’s been fun seeing our little game evolve and these children have wonderful palates. They love cuisine from all over the world and are pretty adept at cooking. Research skills are very strong, too.

      Another fun activity was to let them make up games on their own for all of us to try. Any type of game. Sometimes they were clearly making it up as we go. Other times they were very serious and used poster board and drew or wrote on it and really thought the games out. I gave them only as much guidance and help as was necessary and to eliminate any frustrations. They’ve made up some wonderful games, and sometimes they weren’t so interesting – but we would all give it a try and laugh and enjoy ourselves. Sometimes we would come up with ways to make a so-so game really great. I think it fostered creativity for them and not being afraid to try new things or laugh at themselves. 🙂
