A ton of great ideas. Skee ball, q tip darts and the laser maze are all things I can put together this weekend. Anything to get them off of iPads.
Super great ideas for our kids.

I never knew you can make all this stuff at home and keep my kids busy in playing such creative games instead of breaking stuff (I mean that’s what kids usually do). Plus many of the items you used in making these DIY games is laying around, so its a low budget or no budget ideas. I really appreciate the work and thanks for sharing such nice DIY ideas.
