Have their ever been times in your household where the kids say...."I'm bored." "What can I do?" Heck there are sometimes when I say that as I am with the kids too! We have remedied the problem to some extent in our house.
This week Cavett and I brainstormed about things to do or play with. We wrote them down on a piece of paper and he cut them into little strips. We found a mug and have re-named it the "To-Do" mug. When we don't know what to do, we draw a piece of paper from the mug and we must do whatever it says.
Here's our list of "To-Dos" (notice TV and Wii are not included)
- Dress Up
- Mr. Potato Head/Robot
- Activity Book
- Play Dough
- Army Men
- Hot Wheels
- Board Game
- Monorail Train
- Read books
- Science Experiment--try here and here and here
- Math Puzzle/Game
- Spelling puzzle/Boggle
- Write a letter/card/salt
Of course the last 2 are only when the weather is condusive.
Hope this helps you beat the winter blues! Happy Family Moment Monday!
