Discuss mamabear's answer to: What can I do with my 5 kids on the weekend?

I have five children under the age of 9, and on Saturdays, when my husband is working, we are stuck in the house because of weather and finances. I want to do stuff together, but there is only one ...

teach the kids to all have some type of hobby.  sewing,  crocheting or knitting, or painting.  reading also is sort of a hobby.  volley ball is a good family game,  basket ball and base ball are also family games and cheap to play.  hoola hoops and jump rope.  boardd games,  bike rides ands going for a walk,  better yet is there trails to walk on in the woods near you(safe ones)  ice skating and sledding.  rollerblades also.  small plays made after a movie?  have the children help you clean in a fun way.  let them help re paint a room .  washing the family car and vaccuming it out too is something that smaller kids like to do.  playing in the garden and weeding them also is fun to them.  not each child will have the same likes as the rest of them.  nurture each one in their own liking...........
