Hello! Started by a volunteer in the Big Brothers Big Sisters Program, this blog lists positive activities that are primarily low-cost or free and geared towards youth ages 6-18. Most activities are for individual youth (or a few friends) or can be implemented by adults guiding individual young people or small groups. The activities range from online educational activites, arts and crafts, to creative game ideas.

Have you ever built something? When you build something, you put the pieces together just right so that it can work properly. When you’re forming sentences you connect the words and “build” a sentence. Here’s a game that lets you have fun with constructing sentences! Write the following sentences on pieces of paper and tear the paper so there is one word on each section. Then try to recreate the sentence by moving around the pieces. You can also make up your own sentences. The elephant was sad because the crocodile had taken his lunch away from him and eaten it!
