8. Look Through Old Photos
Since the dawn of time, it has fallen to older generations to pass on the family history. If you need a quiet activity, pull out your family photo albums. Kids are often fascinated by old black-and-whites and how life was "in the olden days." Pictures of parents as children are always a favorite, especially if they're doing something funny, naughty, or embarrassing, and there's a good story to go with.
