By now you’re probably pulling your hair out wondering how to entertain your sweet little bundles of joy. If they are still out of school, chances are that they are bored and probably consistently informing you of that information. Here are a few suggestions to help pass the time until school is once again in session.
- Pull out some old-fashioned board games. I know you probably think that your kids will not enjoy such an archaic pastime, but you might get a pleasant surprise. Playing something out of the ordinary, such as board games, may be fun and interesting, especially if mom and dad play along with them.
- Do some outside activities with the kids. If you have active children, take advantage of the situation. Play some basketball or toss around a football. Getting some exercise while enjoying some fresh air is always a good idea.
- Watch a movie together. Whether you’re a Netflix subscriber or a Blockbuster enthusiast, a good movie is always a fun way to pass the time. Heat up a pizza and pop some popcorn, family time is guaranteed to bring on a smile.
So, don’t despair parents, help is on the way. Have some fun with the kiddos and keep the whining down to a minimum. Get involved and spend a little time with the kiddos. Time is so fleeting that if you blink, you might miss something important.
