And don’t forget to take plenty of pictures!
Set up a backdrop and some props, then let the kids take turns posing for photos. You can even print them out and put them in an album for your son to look back on in years to come.
Have a Movie Marathon
If your son is a fan of movies, then he’s sure to love this activity. Pick out a few of his favorite movies and have a marathon!
You can even make it into a themed party by making popcorn and snacks that go along with the movie. This is a great way to relax and have some fun with the kids.
Make Some Delicious Homemade Pizzas
Pizza is always a hit with kids, so why not make your own? You can either buy pre-made dough or make it from scratch. Then let the kids top their pizzas however they want.
