Hands up who’s housebound with an endlessly active kiddywink (or more!) to keep in check of all day long!? And who’s at a loss as to how these little ones will be entertained for hours and hours at a time?
We hear you, mamas. School’s out for a while and spending quality time with the kids is precious; you want to make the most of it… But at least, you’re used to having the option to venture out for some air and ice cream when it takes their fancy. And when your sense of freedom to come and go as you please, is suddenly out of the question, it may feel somewhat daunting and unsettling at times; especially once the boredom starts to set in.
But we’re all on the same boat and powering through the only way we know how…
The best thing about being indoors at the moment is that the outside world is no longer there to distract us from what our imaginations are truly capable of! So, we may be currently limited when it comes to how far we can explore, but believe it or not, there’s a whole new world to discover right where you are – your home sweet home!
WHAT YOU NEED:
A tent or chairs
Books, toys and your very best treasures!
Oh and don’t forget to bring your imagination…
Prep them for an adventure… to the mountains and beyond!
Dive head first into your space craft and sail among the stars!
Kit yourselves out for safari expeditions and ‘deep in the jungle’ trekking…
Wherever they decide to let their imaginations wander off to, encourage little explorers to get acquainted with the magic of make-believe; these will be memories they’ll keep with them for a life time…
THEIR TOY STORY
A TEA PARTY
WHAT YOU NEED:
CUPS, BOWLS & PLATES
WOODEN CAKE… OR THE REAL STUFF!
TEDDIES, TOYS AND THEIR FAVOURITE FIGURINE GUESTS
Be the very best hostess and invite the household to tea! Now this is a clever little way to be social without, well… being social!
Toys are friends too, and they’re the most well-mannered visitors we’ve ever encountered!
HIDE & SEEK
Step 1 // One person closes their eyes and counts to thirty seconds!
Step 2 // While the person counts, the other players find a secret place to hide
Step 3 // The person counting, once finished, must say “ready or not, here I come!” and begin the search for the hidden players…
The winner is the last person to be found 🙂
Play all over again by choosing a new person to count to thirty!
