Mom... I’m bored! “Summer — that long anticipated stretch of lazy, lingering days, free of responsibility and rife with possibility. It’s a time to hunt for insects, master handstands, practice swim strokes, conquer trees, explore nooks and crannies, and make new friends.” — Darell Hammond Summer is here, which means the kids are out of school for over two months. Every day cannot include an organized activity or costly outing. Here are three home activities that will keep the kids busy on those quiet summer days at home. Homemade Sidewalk Chalk • Disposable cups • Water • Tempera paint, any colors • Plaster of Paris, dry powder

• Silicon molds • For each color, you will need a separate cup.

Fill each cup with 3/4 cup water. Add 1/4 cup of paint. Add 1 cup Plaster of Paris. Mix well. Pour the mixture into molds, and clean the edges with a paper towel. Allow the mixture to dry for 24 hours. Carefully remove the mostly dried mixture from the molds. They will still be soft, so be gentle. Let them finish drying outside the molds for an additional 24 hours. Send the kids outside to make art with their new chalk. (Craft f rom www.
