Momista: Weekend Activities With Your Kids


How cute does Buggy look in this pic? A few weeks ago we spent a Sunday afternoon painting, crafting and cooking… AKA my ideal day! Whenever we have the chance, the kids love to go outside (weather permitting) and get creative.

On this particular day Stella suggested that we all sit outside and paint. I loved this idea because it’s something that all of my babes can take part in – you’re never too young to get your inner artist on! Stella chose to paint Hello Kitty (her fave), while the other kids made their own unique creations.

So I want to hear from you – what’s YOUR favorite way to spend time with your kids on the weekends? Do you have any creative ideas or DIYs that I can try here at the McDermott household?

Let me know how you and your kids spend quality time together on the weekends, and I’ll feature my fave ideas on the blog!

    I love throwing book themed parties for my 4 year old daughter. Today we had a snow day so I let her pick out a book (she chose “Fancy Nancy Elegant Easter”) and I made a tea/lunch party based on pictures from the book. We baked Spring sugar cookies from scratch and had so much fun!

      People, do you really think that Tori care about your life)) wake up))) It`s just a PR. She did not even respond to comments. She`s absolutely indifferent, narcissistic person

        If you feel that way then why are you on her site? This article was designed for mom’s to share what they do for fun with their little ones. It doesn’t have to be anything more then that.

          This question was predictable. Because I wanted to see the Real Person here, and found only false. And it’s true. No one response from Tori. No One. And it’s true, too. Sad but true. Don`t be naive.

    My four year old daughter and I love to play outside (if the weather is warm). We love to sit at our picnic table and color in her coloring books. We also love to go to the library and check out tons of books (especially ‘Pinkalicious’) and come home and I read them to her. We also love to watch a good family movie with a bag of popcorn. We also love to go to the park and walk on the trails..we love being out in nature. There is so many fun things that we like to do but it would take me all day. :)

    My 6 year old, Eli, loves Make it Mondays, when crafting, baking and just general making is what ya do! He likes to start his Make It Monday first thing SATURDAY morning!! Adrian, my 7 year old, is happy to work with us or just spend the weekend jumping on the trampoline, building Lego City, and doing cartwheels in the yard, but he is always close by to gobble up the goodies we have baked.
    Have to say, I enjoy seeing that your sweet Stella has her “phone” close at hand. My boys use our old dinosaur, 3GS phones. Adrian is a shutter bug and film maker in training with his and Eli likes to keep his musical monsters and dragons close at hand! I know there are device haters out there, but I’m happy to have well rounded little boys with a little
    techie-ness rolled in to boot!

    Eli saw this cupcake on a magazine cover at his Nana’s and just had to make them. We recently spent a crazy Texas winter day (Sunday was 84, the Monday we made these was 19 with freezing rain all day) inside baking and decorating.

    I work 5 sometimes 6 and 7 days a week….needless to say on weekends I’ve become a professional couch potato and not the mom and wife my family deserves. I recently started this new nutritional supplement called Thrive which has given me the energy to be the mom I want to be. I’ve had amazing results and thought I would share with all ya’ll moms that are exhausted by the weekend….Iam now THRIVING! mkowens.le-vel .com
