All stay-at-home moms know it can be challenging to entertain kids during the summer, school breaks, and open afternoons and evening hours. My kids regularly ask me to play with them or immediately default to wanting to watch a show or play games on the tablet. We limit screen time to about 1 hour a day, which leaves a lot more hours to fill with interactive and engaging kids’ activities. Here are a few simple kids’ activities to encourage imaginative play, also featuring Jubilant balance bikes!

Fairy & Garden Themed Birthday Party

Fairy & Garden Themed Birthday Party

A 2-year-old birthday is a big deal. We recently celebrated our little one’s second birthday with cupcakes, twinkle lights, and fairies. No one ever needs to convince me to whip up a cute little birthday party. Fortunately my two girls’ birthdays are spaced out in May and October and my little guy made his entrance into the world after Christmas so I get to plan a fun kid’s birthday party every few months. I kept this toddler birthday party fairly simple; cupcakes, a tiny birthday cake that my daughter helped me decorate during nap time, and pretzels dipped in candy melts. We had a blast! Happy 2nd birthday, baby girl!
