A large part of my job as a mom involves keeping my kids entertained with an indoor kids activity. Our family routine includes preschool in the morning and the kids color and write in their phonics workbooks. Other times we have a tea party or play out in the yard. Often my kids want to play on our swing set but it’s rainy or cold outside. A simple indoor kids activity can help my kids burn off energy, explore their creativity, or enjoy sibling playtime inside the house without feeling too confined.

Quite a few plants and flowers are ideal for planting in the fall to give your home and lawn a little more color.

I’m excited to share our favorite tips for planning a pampering spa day at home!
