Do you sometimes struggle to come up with creative activities for the kiddos? My kids often have extra energy on days they can’t go outside. This means we get to do creative projects, make a DIY sensory bin, or practice learning new skills through play. Did you know kids learn something new from practically everything they do? Think about it. When kids ride a bike they practice balancing. When kids color they are practicing motor skills. When kids eat lunch they are discovering favorite foods or possibly trying new foods. Every day is like a maze of exploration for kids, which I think is fun! Here are some imagination-inspiring activities for kids to do on a rainy day.
When tough news hits the headlines it can be tempting to hide the facts when talking with children. Here are some ideas for how to share distressing news updates with your kids.
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!
Easily make this fun no borax liquid slime as a fun afternoon activity for kids! You can make slime in all colors and themes; black space slime, shimmery purple mermaid slime and green jungle slime! Kids will have a blast with this hands-on chemistry experiment.
Do you have a picky eater? Sometimes it’s about all a mom can handle to get a child to eat their lunch. My kids have gone through stages of pickiness during meals. My oldest loved eating everything as a baby; kalamata olives, goat cheese, spaghetti, artichoke, you name it. She’s become quite a bit more picky but still is often willing to try new foods. My little guy is all about meat and cheese which he eats almost every meal. When kids go through stages of picky eating, parents can use simple strategies to encourage their kids to eat healthy food. I’m excited to share some easy ways to make meals fun and healthy and sneak in some veggies too!
As soon as it starts getting warm outside, my kids want to go out and play. Keep kids entertained this spring and summer with a few simple interactive activities, nature scavenger hunts, and imaginative play with sensory activities! Of course, one highlight of the changing seasons is the adorable kids’ fashion that moms can get out and pack the past season’s clothes away!
