{Kid's Co-op} Simple Family Fun

Hooray! It's the weekend! I'd like to celebrate by sharing some simple family activities with you! We've been having fun doing pretend camping at our house in preparation for our upcoming camping trip... and we've been eating way too many indoor s'mores (Target was having a sale on marshmallows and chocolate bars :)).

Today I am featuring three awesome posts from last week's Kid's Co-op that are simple activities to do with your family. I really want to try them all out!

1. Kid Wash via Familylicious

I think my kids would be outside every chance they could get if we had one of these in our backyard!

2. Ball Bounce Painting via Mommy and Me Book Club

Painting that could be a little uncontrolled and totally spontaneous is right up our alley! The kids would have a blast with this!

3. Catapult Project via Creekside Learning

I have seen this project pinned again and again on Pinterest and every time I see it again I am reminded that we need to do it! Maybe this weekend it will happen? Love it!

If you are looking for more awesome ideas, check out EJ's Swimming Pool Scrabble game, or look below at all the amazing posts that have been linked up this week.

Yesterday I shared some ways to slow down and keep it simple and several of those ideas included spending time with your family doing fun things. I hope you'll take a lot of time this weekend to be present with your family members and do simple fun things together. 

I love this quote. It is totally true.

If you have a sec, come share your favorite activity to do with your family, or link up an activity, craft, or project to this week's Kid's Co-op Linky. I'd to see what you've been up to!

Have a great long weekend! I'll see you back on Tuesday!
