This years cabin fever has been especially hard for this mom. I’m sure it has something to do with the fact that the Captain is getting older, and has more energy than the sun – but it might just kill me. I have started looking into places we can go to burn some energy at night – and other than the mall “playground,” where I am sure the flu bug sits in hiding waiting to pounce, or a fast food restaurant play area (equally as gross), I am a total loss.

While searching, I headed over to the KC Parent website, and found a list of activities you could do with your child to help keep them occupied. Some I will try, some I will not based on age or attention span. But it’s a solid list from making paper airplanes and racing them to making volcanoes and window painting. Here’s the list.
What kind of things do you do with your littles to help burn energy?
