We're having a party here this weekend with our friends and their kids ranging from 1 - 8 yo. Mix of boys and girls. Any suggestions on low cost ways to keep the kids entertained? I got some coloring books, crayons and pencils, bubbles, sidewalk chalk. We have a swing set, sand box. Anything else I could get that will keep them entertained? TIA

We love to do water play outside... fill a few tubs or buckets with water, and put out funnels, measuring cups, strainers, clean squirt bottles, paintbrushes, sponges, etc. kids of all ages can find something interesting to do.

I also encourage non-sidewalk use of chalk...i.e, all over the wooden swing set, fence, deck, trees...anything that is wooden and will be rained upon can be covered in chalk.
