Sometimes I put so much pressure on myself to be this perfect mummy and then what happens is that I don’t enjoy this rubbish facade I pretended to be that I was so miserable. However, one thing I did learn is that you don’t have to go overboard with your children, sometimes the simplest things are the best. Here are my five favorite things to do with kids.
You can not go wrong with simply coloring in with pens or crayons. Or just getting some plain paper and drawing random shapes. My eldest particular loves this because he finds it calming and so do I.
A fantastic and cheap activity to do that doesn’t cause any mess is getting a straw and a little ball and blowing it to one another across the table. It is great because the boys see it as a game and I don’t have to think so much which is always a winner in my eyes.
My boys love books and there educational too. You don’t even have to spend tons of money, go to the library let them pick a book or two. They will feel good because they can feel or grow up because it is there choice. Reading together is great bonding time and also helps with communication, win-win.
A fun game that both boys love playing and actually spend a long time on is getting all the pillows on the floor and just let run or jump. They love playing together with races and it is so easy to do.
Get some pasta and some threat and thread the pasta throw. Very simple activity but great for helping with fine motor skills and coordination.
What simple activities help you to keep your little ones entertained?
