Frequently Asked Questions
What am I buying, exactly?
You get a 28 page PDF containing 370 activity ideas for kids. You can print it out and cut them into slips of paper, to put in an envelope or jar.
When will it be delivered?
As soon as you complete your purchase, you will have the option to download the PDF. Plus, a link to access it again will be emailed to you.
Which ages are appropriate for these activities?
Many of the activities are open ended and can be as complex and independent, or simple and parent-guided as necessary. The activities are best for children approximately aged 3 through 11.
What supplies will I need for these?
The majority of the ideas only require some combination of the following: an imagination, an internet connection, common children's play items, minor craft supplies or things around the house like cardboard recycling. 280 of the ideas fall into this category.
How much do the paid activities cost to do?
Paid activities range from $1-5 in inputs, like a roll of painter's tape, to the cost of admission to local events or perhaps a weekend away (if something is not available in your area.) 90 of the ideas fall into this category, with most costing less than $10 per person.
I am self isolating/quarantined/on lock down. Is this still worthwhile?
YES! Over 200 of the activities can be done indoors or in a backyard, with things you likely already have at home.
The rest of the ideas are ones you can look forward to doing another day.
What size paper does it print on?
Letter size paper, 8.5 x 11". That said, most modern printers have a "fit to page" setting that will let you scale and print to other sizes, like A4.
What if I don't currently have access to a printer?
That's a-ok. You can still read the ideas off the screen. You can also write them onto your own paper, if you'd like.
