Convincing kids that veggies are as good as candy can be a daunting task, but this game makes eating veggies a challenge and believe it or not, fun! Play with one or two kids during a meal, or play with a big group as a relay race. It's a game that will make Peter Rabbit hop up and down with delight! (Of course, if playing at a birthday party you may want to substitute sweets for the veggies! No one wants a riot on their hands at a party!)
Put together your own Easter Bonnet Bash! Invite your friends over to make fabulous chapeaus out of ordinary household items, then shut down the street and take your show on the road for all the neighbors to see. This activity is awesome for pre-schoolers as well as teens and seniors. All you need is a sense of whimsy and a bunch of paper goods!

Looking for something to do with those leftover Easter peeps? Peep Skeet! It's up to you what you choose to knock the peeps from the sky, but whatever you choose will definitely provide an awesome challenge. One player tosses Peeps into the air, while the other tries to hit the Peep before it lands on the ground. It's better than going on an English shooting party with the crew from Downton Abby!
Create your own land before time when dinosaurs roamed and volcanic activity was shaping the earth. These miniature volcanoes can be created using household supplies and make a great rainy day kitchen activity. Gather up your toy dinos and recreate your favorite movie scenes. The best part about it, is this lava only looks hot! It's completely safe for all ages.

Have you got what it takes to "face the flour"? A Lifesaver is placed on top of a hard-packed mound of flour. Players take turns cutting the flour away, bit by bit, with a plastic knife. It takes precision to keep that Lifesaver aloft, but when it falls, you'd better get the camera, because whomever has knocked the Lifesaver down must retrieve it without the use of their hands! A fabulously messy game that's great for your next family gathering!
This is, without a doubt, the best playdough recipe ever, and one I've been sharing for years. Although your children can help with certain steps, an adult is needed for a few of the steps, but once the playdough is done, it will provide endless hours of fun for everyone. The dough is smooth, silky, holds together well, and is perfect for sculptures, rolling, and cutting into shapes. Stored in an airtight container, the clay will last for months.
