I have an almost nine year old daughter. All the ideas that I have read are great. If there are things to do in the community take her. No opera of course but time at the library for the reading program. Swimming is always a blast. Zoo's are way fun. Most important ask her what she might want to do. Give her your ideas and see what she says. Laugh, laugh, laugh!!! That is what she will remember.

I am watching a 9 year old as well and she is obsessed with this peanut-butter play-dough, bring out some cookie cutters and I even find myself sneaking little tastes. If peanut allergies are an issue there are cashew and almond butter also that would work.
1 Cup Peanut Butter
1/2 Cup Honey
2 Cups Powdered Sugar
Mix all ingredients in a bowl using hands, Dough should feel soft and pliable. When not in use dough must be stored in an air tight container.
Also during the week plan things out have at least two days where you go to the playground and make sure that there is at least one thing each day that is something for them to remember, they could help you make cookies, a cake, there could be making paper dolls, or colidascopes out of toilet pepper rolls, as long as there is one really fun thing to do, I found that after lunch is good it gives them something to look forward to, they think that that day was a blast. Hope this helps, and good luck.

Homade Play dough!! Who doesn't love it no matter what age!? Especially if it's homemade! Go on-line and just put in homemade play dough there are lots of recipes that are not expensive, we use this at school all the time! Really good for a rainy day!
