Anyone with a small kid at home knows how much fun this can be, and at the same time, a little bit of work, right? Moms and dads know the delights that only this phase provides – and how fast it goes.
In the blink of an eye, the little ones grow up, leaving memories that are always full of affection and joy. Below are some of the fun thing’s kids love a lot
- COOKING WITH THE KIDS.
Taking kids to the kitchen is a good opportunity to integrate them into the activities of the house. Little ones can help by breaking eggs for a cake or even putting their hands in the dough to make cookies, bread, and pizzas.
Preparing a fruit salad, for example, can be good for them to discover new flavors and consume healthy foods while they are having fun.
- SETTING UP CAMP.
Improvising a camping trip with sheet huts in the living room and pillows on the floor can generate entertainment for a long time. To enhance the fun, have a picnic with a colorful towel, fruit, and cookies. This is one of the activities that kids love doing.
- GROWING PLANTS AND VEGETABLES.
Children love to tinker with the earth, and having a little plant teaches care while they are having fun, in addition to being an opportunity to follow the life cycle of a vegetable.
Those who live in apartments can set up a small vegetable garden on the balcony or in the service area, for example.
- MAKING SOAP BUBBLES.
A simple game that always pleases kids is the soap bubbles. You can prepare the mixture at home with water and detergent and make molds with wire or string to play on the balcony, patio, or even the window.
On the internet, there are also homemade recipes for slime, clay, and paint. These are things that little ones love and stimulate creativity.
- INVENT A TOY.
In the children’s universe, any object can become a toy. Papers, toilet paper rolls, fabric scraps, pet bottles, lids, and boxes can be reused and take on new meaning in children’s hands, becoming a cart, a robot, Figurine pop or a hut. Indulging in these activities with the kids makes them happy.
- LISTENING TO STORIES.
Create a time of day for storytelling. If reading aloud isn’t your thing, search YouTube for storytelling channels and watch with your kids. In addition to the books, you can narrate adventures from your childhood, remembering fun facts.
- TRAVELING THE WORLD.
Today it is possible to visit museums all over the world with the help of technology. A quick Internet search is enough to find dozens of places that offer virtual tours and explore the collections for free without leaving your home. This is one of the fun things kids love a lot.
- VIDEO CALLS.
The social dimension is very important for children who are used to living with their peers, whether at school or in the condominium. Promote virtual meetings with colleagues and close family members whenever possible.
Meditation encourages proper breathing and concentration. And you can start with small doses. Propose your child to be silent for a minute paying attention to outside noises, and then talk about what he heard. Another way is to ask the child to take a few deep breaths to perceive the heartbeat.
- OLD GAMES AND MOVIES.
Take the time to introduce your children to movies, TV shows, and childhood games – always respecting the age group.
Remember that, for them, less technological life is something unusual and arouses curiosity. Show them old videos and photo albums.
- REDESIGN THE CHILDREN’S ROOM.
When parents talk about “cleaning up the children’s room,” the offspring quickly suffer from spontaneous deafness. “Redesigning children’s rooms” sounds much better.
Why not move the furniture, paint a few walls or set up a cozy tent made of pillows and blankets in the middle of the room with the help of your kid? Apart from keeping things tidy, the kids will enjoy the time you spend with them.
- PLAYING VIDEO GAMES WITH THEM.
If your kids are so old that you can no longer entice them with a children’s book or a board game, then the game console is certainly not far. There are tons of kid-friendly games.
Having fun while doing what your kid’s love is important for kids’ growth. These moments will bring great memories.
