3 Ways to Have Fun THIS Weekend & The Weekly Kid's Co-op

Due to vacations and birthday parties, we took a few weeks off from the Weekly Kid's Co-op, but now we're back and I can't wait to share some of the fun things you may have missed out on while we were gone. 

If you don't have plans for this weekend, these activities will keep your kids busy and having fun - and maybe even learning something (all while enjoying the great outdoors!)

1.  Photo Scavenger Hunt - I love this idea from The Magnolia Tree!  My boys are always dying to get my camera and what better way to get them excited about finding different letters, colors, textures, and shapes!  Tara even has a printable to get you started on your own hunt!

2.  Water Science Experiments - Why not try out some fun science experiments with water from The Measured Mom!  Take advantage of the beautiful weather to get your kids outside and learning all while splashing and having some fun!

 3.  Beach Sensory Play - If you can't make it to the real beach (or are like me and don't really like the beach - gasp!!), make a mini-beach at home and let the kids explore all they want without getting sand in places that sand really should not be!  I just love this little sensory station from Fantastic Fun & Learning.  Best of all, clean up becomes part of the play!!  You can also try out our homemade moon sand to add to this one.
