Such activities are great alternatives to television that help kids tap into their creative sides. Tell us about some resources you've found -- Web sites, books, whatever -- that provide great ideas. Here are some to get us started in no particular order. 1. http://familyfun.go.com/crafts/ and http://familyfun.go.com/ - The Disney Family Fun magazine Web site -- and it's page devoted to crafts - - offers many choices. There are lots of ideas for age appropriate games, crafts and more. 2. http://crafts.kaboose.com/ - Kaboose crafts for kids 3. http://www.kidscraftweekly.com/about.html 4. http://www.parents.com/fun/ - Parents magazine 5. http://www.marthastewart.com/ - Some of these obviously aren't geared toward kids. But moms need mom time too. 6. http://www.crayola.com/ - Crayola site. Think coloring pages among other projects. 7. http://kids.nationalgeographic.com/Activities/ - National Geographic kids.
