I'm looking for suggestions for fun, family activies that won't require my child to be on medication.  My son's meds wear off in the afternoon, but I hate to give him another dose when he can function pretty well for the most part.  I'd like to be able to plan some fun things we can do, the more we keep the kids active and engaged, the less sibling fighting occurs ;)  Any ideas?

How about a "faux" snowball fight?  This worked great with my GS, but I know would just set my nephew off so depends on your childs temperment.  We got a bunch of large (3-4") pom-poms, 5-6 per kid and let them go at each other outside on a day that wasn't too cold (LOL-they'd been complaining we hadn't had enough snow!) They're so soft, you can't throw them hard if you try and even the 3 yo took one direct in the face with no tears.  Sadly, neither we or our best friend neighbors have inside spaces that could be easily cleared to use, but this would be great inside if you've got a garage or basement without a lot of breakables.   Hope this goes through--I've tried post 3 times before & it didn't work!
