Build a Fort
The joy you felt as a kid building a fort in the living room is alive and well with little ones today. Use some of your downtime to revel in this simple childhood pastime. You can opt to go the high-end route and build a permanent and reusable fort, or keep it old school by using chairs, blankets, sheets and every pillow in the house. This activity will keep the kiddos busy while they're building, and once it's erected there are hours of fun to be had reading books, playing make-believe and rebuilding it once it (inevitably) gets knocked down.
