Welcome to the Purple Cow @ Home---the place where families can discover many new ideas for indoor and outdoor projects and games to enjoy while following directives for staying home. The idea is to HAVE FUN and BE CREATIVE using stuff you already have around the house!
run the range from physically active ideas to games and artsy craft projects, all designed for school-age children, guided by parents who are looking for imaginative ways to fill the hours at home. (We all need to take a break from screen time to enjoy some activities IRL!) Though the emphasis is on 4 - 10 year olds, preschoolers and older siblings can join in at their interest/ability level too.
Each week Purple Cow @ Home will feature new activities in an easy-to-use recipe format
that guides parents, or older brothers and sisters who may want to step in for parents busy working at home. Each posting lists the “ingredients” needed, followed by the step-by-step “how to” instructions, cookbook style.
The Purple Cow invites you to rescue some things from the recycling bin to repurpose them for family fun and learning! These are every-day items found around the house like egg cartons and cardboard tubes—plus you will need a few basic supplies like scissors, crayons and glue---see detailed lists
of “SAVED ITEMS” and BASIC SUPPLIES.”
