If you’re a parent, your child’s welfare is at the forefront of your mind at all times. While their health and safety are number one, there’s a multitude of other issues you’re regularly faced with such as how to keep the little buggers entertained 24/7. Not only is keeping kids active a benefit, it’s also at times a challenge. We put together our top five activities that will be helpful if you find yourself drawing a blank. Ready, set, read!
- Activity One: Reading
- Activity Two: Making Play-Doh from Scratch
- Activity Three: Teaching Everyday Skills
- Activity Four: Exercise
- Activity Five: Cooking
Activity One: Reading as a top five activities. The reason for this being our favorite is because reading gives both parents and children an opportunity to explore new lands, experience unique situations and solve problems. While many children shy away from reading, there are some that absolutely love it and can’t get enough. Encourage your children to read even when not in school. By using this a parent/child activity, you’ll also get a break.
Activity Two: Making Play-Doh from scratch is easy and not as messy as some may think. The best part is you can find most of your ingredients around the house. To explain why this made it to our list, is we enjoy squishing around with the substance too! Who doesn’t enjoy rolling around and forming little dough balls and then creating something awesome? We went the additional step for you and found the recipe, so you can DIY with the kids.
Activity Three: Teaching kids an everyday skill is valuable. Find ways to show them how to work with money. Take them out to the garage and give a lesson on tools and how to use them. The point is kids will retain pretty much everything you teach them at this age so why not give them the skills they’ll need to make a difference? Go the extra mile and activity will be in your top line-up too!
Activity Four: Exercising is one of the best activities for any kid-parent team. Whether you’re out bowling or joining little league, you’ll enjoy the time spent teaching your kid to be physically fit. Another important aspect is kids enjoy challenging and strategizing but it’s also important to teach them how to be okay with losing. Just stay positive and any activity involving athletics will surely be entertaining.
Activity Five: We’ve come to our final interest which is cooking. There’s just something about being in the kitchen, creating something and making a mess that seems to rank high with our attention. This truly is an enjoyable part of any parent’s day when they get to be side by side with their kids in preparing food. Even if it’s baking cookies from a package, there’s a bond that takes place. Don’t worry you can clean up the clutter in the kitchen later.
The important thing to remember here is by spending quality time with your kids, you’ll be keeping them busy and teaching them a wide variety of personal attributes. Any one of these activities will allow you to enjoy the process no matter what these entails.
Of course, our sixth activity we are extremely partial to is taking your child to the Wow Factory for some fun. But, we figure you already knew that to be number one! We hope to see you soon.
