Keeping the kids entertained

Since school has started my kids have been pretty bored in the afternoon's before their friends get home from school. TV is just not an option for them anymore. I don't want them to get into too many bad habits.

The other day they were really bugging me to do something. I had a thought that I think worked out really well. We had a big roll of paper that I thought would be fun for them to paint on. We didn't have any tape to tape it to something so I got magnets and stuck it up on the garage door. We didn't have any paint brushes for the paint, so we used q-tips. It really worked out nice to have them entertained and to use their creativity.

It is a great idea. I doubt I will try it, though. I'm lazy, you know.
