Tips for Keeping the Kids Entertained While You Work
It never fails. School is cancelled because of weather on a day where you need to get some items checked off your to-do list for work. Have no fear. The activity genie is here to help give you some tips for when you need to keep your kids entertained while you get some things done!
Fun Activities for the Kiddos
You may worry that in order to get things done for work while at home, you have to automatically place your child in front of the television. This is not the case at all! In fact, there are plenty of activities you can give your children to do while you work that do not involve any screen time.
First, are your children of chore age? Now would be the perfect time to give them a chore chart of things they can do around the house. For example, can they dust and vacuum? What about load and unload the dishwasher? Or even give the family dog a bath?! Completing chores while you work is a perfect way for them contribute to the family while you do too!
You can also set up a little art station where your child can go to get creative! Have a chair and desk set up where they can paint, write, build, and just be their own creative self! This is a perfect for opportunity for them to just play and use their imagination.
Some children want to "go to work with mommy," and that is fine too! Grab a pencil and some paper and have them write a story for you to act out later. Tell them they are planning a Sprinkles party, and let their imagination do the rest. Then, later in the evening, act out their version of their own Pink Zebra party!
