- Kitchen Timer Hide-n-Seek. Make sure your kitchen timer ticks. Hide it somewhere in the house. It's like a scavenger hunt, but they have to use their ears. Bonus: this game gives you a few minutes of quiet. :)
- Oatmeal Aggression Cookies. Throw 3 cups of quick oats, 1 1/2 cups brown sugar, 1 1/2 cups flour, 1 1/2 cups butter, 1 1/2 tsp baking powder into a large bowl. (I split the ingredients into 2 bowls so each child had one.) And let 'em at it! Punch, knead, squish...all with their hands (yes, a good hand-washing before is mandatory). When your wiggle worms are sufficiently worn out, roll the dough into balls and place on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 for 10-15 minutes.
