Not to brag, but I have cable, with a million channels. I have movie after movie on DVD. I have a Wii and a few dvds full of games for that. Ipods, PSP, and so on.
Every kid in the house ended up making Shrinky Dinks.
The littlest one had gotten really bored - she was the only one who didn't match to another kid her own age. So I opened the cupboard over the dryer where we have some long forgotten art & crafts supplies.
I guess our kids have gotten so far away from the "retro" toys of the 70's and 80's that they are interesting again.
We just let the kids play, and the adults drank all the beer in my house.
It's amazing how enjoyable the most mundane, silly pasttimes can end up being, if you just fill your house up with a few nice people.
