    Free Play - Take time out and have fun with your kids

In the folk story Something From Nothing by Phoebe Gilman, we read the story of Joseph, a young boy whose grandfather makes him a beautiful blue blanket when he is born. As the years go by and the blanket becomes worn, Grandfather recycles it. He makes the blanket into other things that the boy can use: a jacket, a vest, a tie and finally a cloth-covered button. We can learn a lesson from this lovely old tale. We can also make something from nothing with our children. It is fun to use things that we already have in the house and save money by doing so.

Play music. Turn on the radio and play along with homemade instruments. Of course pots and pans make great drums, but so do old coffee cans. Fill up containers with beans, lentils and anything else you can find that makes a noise. How do the filled containers sound similar? Which ones sound different? Please make sure that your containers are well sealed so your child cannot eat or possibly hurt himself with the contents. Don’t forget to enjoy the easiest instruments of all — our voices as we sing along, our feet as we tap the rhythm, and our hands as we clap along.

Make homemade play-dough. Take 2 cups of baking soda, 1½ cups of water and 1 cup of cornstarch. Mix them together with a fork until smooth. Boil over medium heat until the mixture gets thick. Spoon the mixture onto a plate or wax paper and let it cool. This is not an edible play-dough — it won’t taste very good, but it will be fun to play with!

Blow bubbles. Straw bubbles are a fun and easy activity to play with children. Just mix up a bubble solution using a mild liquid dishwashing detergent: 1 ounce of detergent for each 2 cups of water is all you will need to get started. Put a bit of the solution on a plate and let your child blow into the mixture through a straw, making lots of bubbles. Make sure that no one sucks in through the straw; it will taste pretty horrible! Create bubble wands out of found objects (straws, pipe cleaners, strawberry baskets, cookie cutters and coat hangers) and have your own bubble festival.

Enjoying time together can be easy and inexpensive at the same time. So go ahead and make collages, go to the playground, and take nature walks. Play games such as Follow the Leader and Red Light, Green Light or just roll on the floor together. There are so many possibilities for fun with our kids!!!
