For those of you who have, you understand how frustrating it can be trying to think up constant new ideas to keep the little ones entertained.

So to help you out, and to ensure your kids have the best weekend possible, here is our top 10 list of things to do:

1. Visit a fire station

Most local stations will give your kids a tour if you ask them nicely. Your kids will love seeing real firemen in action & getting to sit in a fire truck is a once in a lifetime experience for most.

2. Play capture the flag

Get your kids & some of their friends together to play this classic game. If you want to make it even more fun (and if you have a very large back yard), then play the spotlight tag version after dark.

3. Have a four-square tournament

Your kids play four-square handball at school during the week, so they love to show off their skills. Pull the cars out of the garage, grab some chalk and a tennis ball and let the games begin. Just make sure to set a prize for the winner such as choosing what's for dinner!

4. Take your kids on a sensory journey

Take your kids out for a cuisine they havenít tried before. Whether itís Thai, Korean BBQ, Sushi, Indian, Nepalese or Russian. While at the restaurant teach your kids about why the food is different. See, education can be healthy!

5. Head to the toy store

Skip the online toy stores this weekend and head to a bricks and mortar store. Toys R Us generally have large stores where your kids can get lost for hours. Take them in and let them run wild, just make sure if youíre going to buy anything you make sure they know their budget.

6. Check out the stars

Kids love space, so roll a blanket out on the lawn after dark and show them all of the constellations. Read up on the famous constellations ahead of time and theyíll think you're a genius

7. Plan a treasure hunt

And make sure itís themed! Get your kids to dress up like Pirates and to follow clues around the house until they find the buried treasure of chocolate coins.

8. Get cooking

Kids love food, so why not teach them to make their favorites. Teach them how to make cookies, cakes, pizza & sausage rolls the healthy way!

9. Horse riding

There are many horse riding schools around, and for a small investment you and your little ones can all mount your steedís to relax for the afternoon. If your kids havenít ridden before then itís worth them taking lessons over a few weekends.

10. Sports

Whether its local little league, college basketball or the super bowl, make watching sports with your kids an experience. Pick a team and follow them religiously for a season. Get them merchandise & snacks whenever you watch a game.
