It’s easy to have your kids in front of the TV or hand in a device when you know you’re going to get busy with your office stuffs. But would you prefer to do that? Here’s a list of fun things you can do to keep your kids busy while you work:
1. Bathtub Play
All you have to do is fill up the bathtub with warm water, put some fizzy bath tablets in the water. Put some toys in the water, and they’re good to be engaged for an hour. You can even give them sand toys and Lego to play in the water.
If mess doesn’t bother you, then let your little ones have fun with paint. You can use a nice sheet of paper, markers, watercolor paints and brushes, crayons, and colored pencils. Let their imagination flow on the paper. Or, you can even give them a picture to draw and paint. Challenge them how much they can copy the picture.
3. Play Dough
Play-dough can keep the little hands busy for hours. Cleanup is always a problem later. So, for easy cleanup make them play on the surface you can wipe up easily. You can make them play on the dining table or big serving trays. This will keep the mess limited. Let them be more creative, and engage them for longer by giving them spoons, little bowl, butter knife, and fork to be used as tools.
4. Bring Home A Pet
Pets can not only keep your kids engaged, there are many benefits that having a dog, cat, bird, fish or guinea pig will have on your kids. There are many tasks that come with having a pet such as feeding, exercise, grooming and play, and can easily consume their time.
We all know Legos are lots of fun, and great for creativity. It is a blend of learning with fun. Like adults, children tend to find tasks more interesting and motivating when they have a quantifiable target to achieve. Set a time and make them build something.
