Feeding ducks is such a great pleasure for a fun and simple family activity! But did you know that eating white bread isn't necessarily good for ducks? See how knowing the foods that are nutritious for feeding ducks can also help you talk with your children and teens about finding balance in their lives!

This activity takes paper airplanes to the next level! While the fun of building a paper airplane encourages creativity, add a target for the airplane to land on and it focuses your family's creativity to reach higher to build an engineering masterpiece! Take the activity up a notch more by downloading this FREE paper airplane runway (link in my profile) and see who can land on it with the most accuracy! Then take the chance to talk about how, as with this game, having a specific goal helps us channel our efforts to reach our best abilities. It's also a great STEM activity at home to learn about the laws of aerodynamics!
This type of boredom buster is my favorite because you can find ways to “level up” the challenge in creative ways. And all you need is a bouncy ball!
Place a bouncy ball in the palm of your right hand. Toss it into the air and bounce it off the palm of your left hand. Bounce it back toward the right hand but have it bounce on the back side of the hand, then bounce it off the back of the left hand—all in one continuous bouncing motion. See how many times in a row you can bounce it back and forth between the palms and backs of your hands.
