Fun activities you can do at home with your family today

A scavenger hunt and homemade slime will keep everyone entertained for hours.
You've already played your favorite video game, worked on that puzzle, and read your newest book—twice. With all of us staying home more than usual, everyone is looking for something different to do. And the Families@ affinity group has ideas! Here are a couple activities that will keep anyone age 3 and up (plus a supervising grown-up) happily occupied.
  1. Time for a scavenger hunt!

    Below is a simple indoor scavenger hunt based on one of our favorite Amazon words... P R I M E ! See how quickly you can find these five types of things at home. Depending on how sharp your eyes are, you might be able to find everything even faster than the five minutes allowed.
  2. How to make your own colorful slime

    Follow the easy steps below to quickly make your own batch of slime with ingredients found around the house. You can also personalize your slime using glitter, washable paint, food coloring, confetti, and more! It will only take about five minutes, plus cleanup time.
