Babies, toddlers, kids in general can be bundles of cuteness and can be very fun. Their over-the-roof energy levels are one thing that makes them so unique. Where the problem comes in is keeping those hyper active minds and little bodies occupied so they don’t occupy themselves with things you’d rather not have them doing. Perhaps a child or even worse, children have been put in your care and you are running out of ideas on what to do with all that extra energy, here are 5 things to do to someone’s baby.
Nothing else would excite babies than the thought of having to get out of that house they’ve been cooped up in for days or even weeks, endless hours of school work and different baby sitters and dad’s boring jokes. No need to get all fancy with the food – simple sandwiches or salads would do. Just a basket and your baby straight to the park or out in nature for some fun time. They would definitely be delighted all the extra space, games and new friends they would meet.
A good old fashioned coloring book would just do the trick. An added advantage is that they can do that with minimal supervision. You might be feeling adventurous and turn it up a notch by making scrap book. Mind you, make sure all the cutting equipment are plastic and child friendly to avoid injury. You can also do painting if you are willing to clean up the mess that would surely result after all the fun.
A deflate-able pool is sure to keep babies occupied for really lengthy periods of time. Just provide abundance of water toys and you are good to go. In the event of more than one or two kids you could even play water games, they are a whole lot fun than just regular splashing around In the pool.
TAKE A FIELD TRIP
A trip to the zoo would definitely be an exciting adventure for the little ones, watching monkeys jump around or the really frightening roar of the lion. Too frightening Perhaps? You do not want to give the child nightmares (lol). A trip to the aquarium might be more friendly or a flower shop. Or alternatively go to a pet shop instead of the zoo. Puppies and kittens are far more friendlier animals than a lion. Only your 1 year old might want to take one home.
PLAY DRESS UP
Dig up all those old clothes and you can even stage your own runway and fashion show. Trying to mimic old pictures of mommy or daddy can be really fun or playing doctor with the stuffed toys too. No special equipment needed just a few clothes and toys and you are good to go
