I get the kids to pick up all the sticks that have fallen in the yard. Then we have a little bon fire. We roast marshmallows and make SMORES. The kids love it. As a bonus I get all the sticks picked up in the yard.View Thread
I have a lot of cook books. When the kids want to help and I am out of ideas we start going through the cookbooks. When the find something that they want to try we check to see if we have the ingrediants and then go for it. There faborites are cookies, cakes and breads. In most cake and quick bread receipes you can subsitute an equat amount of apple sauce in place of the oil. To me the baked good actually turns out moister.View Thread
I take a English Muffin half and put pizza sauce on it and then let the kids top each pizza with whatever ingrediants that we have on hand. Then we bake for 7 to 8 minutes at 350 degrees. This is one way for them to try different toppings on pizza. They are actually more willing to eat it if they have made it.View Thread
We go to a pumpkin patch that lets you go out to the field and pick your own pumpkins. We get a nice little hike to the pumpkin field. I freeze pumkin puree so we pick alot of pumpkins. Not only is there a lot of walking but you also get the added bonus of bending over and moving that many pumpkins.View Thread
