Activities for Kids
Now your kids are getting older they require entertainment…. Constant entertainment!
You have some choices here. One being sitting them in front of the TV, or some other device. It is tempting in the short term, but often leads to more whining in the future.
You could let them loose in the backyard (if you have one). Which has its advantages.
And of course you could engage with them to play games, learn, & explore while having fun.
We all have the best intentions in these situations and in reality a mix of all three is inevitable.
But it can be hard to come up with ideas, and enough variety to prevent that gravitation back towards the TV or iPad. In this section you will find an extensive selection of games for kids, and other activities that center on learning and creativity so you will never run out of ideas.
So bookmark this page so you can come back whenever you need something new.
