This week I’m continuing to give you ideas for things to do with the kids while we are asked to stay home! Each week’s list is really applicable at all times, so make sure you check back through the older lists for more ideas!

10 Things to do at Home with the Kids this Weekend:

1. Make a Shark Photo Frame courtesy of Greater Cleveland Aquarium.

This looks like a fun craft! You need construction paper, heavy paper (like a manila folder), glue, scissors and a marker.
