Saying no to more activities for kids

How do I say no to activities for my kids? I feel bad saying we can’t do all the activities that they want but I also have absolutely no time for myself because I’m always driving someone around somewhere! 😬

Give them a choice of which activities they want to do. Tell them they have time for X number of activities, let them know which ones they can choose from, and let them decide. That way they have a role in the process and they are the ones who decided which to participate in and which to skip this time around.
