ANOTHER GAME TO PLAY WITH THE HERD- Ball Toss. Would also make a great "rainy day" activity. You could even find tubs or buckets of varying sizes (like nesting bins) for more of a challenge for the older kids (Think Skee-ball).
DIY: Bubble recipe and refill station. Love the idea of reusing plastic cups from restaurants as the containers. Keep the bubble solution confined to one big refill container, and no worries about leaky, yucky containers hiding all over the house!
It's called a "Punch Box" and it's a great alternative to a pinata. Instead of beating on a pinata with a stick, each person punches through one of the pretty colored circles in order to grab the prize inside. A great idea for a take home party favor.
parachute and balloon activity. "balloon popcorn" bouncing the balloons on the bed sheet. The second parachute activity involves floating the sheet up and down while the children giggle and laugh underneath.
A No-Mess Painting Activity Kids Will Love and You Will Love the Clean-Up
