For the sake of some quiet time
I am here with my second post and you know what brings me here to write it down “Anger”, yes it is the anger develop in me with the continuous fights between my kids, the continuous noise and the lack of me time. All of you who have three boys of these ages (5,4 and 2) can understand my situation. I do control the screen time for my kids and want my kids to keep themselves busy with other healthy activities. so it is my daily task to find new ideas and toys which can keep them busy for longer period of time and should be economical too so I could find some time in peace:).
As far as indoor activities are concerned I find these quite creative and brainstorming for my toddler, preschooler and kindergartener at the same time. I am sure that would work for you as well if you have young kids at home.
My kids can play for hours with playDoh. In my opinion playing with Doh is much more creative and brainstorming than playing with any other toy. while playing with Doh they create many things with just their imagination and this also help them sharing their ideas and playing together. And the best thing with this buy is that it is much more reasonably prized than any other PlayDoh set. It has 24 large size(3 ounce) cans which kids can play with for days. If your kids also love playing with Doh this might be the best deal you can have.
The good thing I like about kinetic sand is that unlike PlayDoh there is nothing happen to it if you leave it open it will remain same in texture. It could be little messy while playing with kinetic sand but the thing I like about this buy is that it comes with the box which could minimize that issue, otherwise kids can play it on playing mats or any play table.I will have to be careful for my 2 years old while my other two kids are playing with it because he might eat it. I find its feel and texture quite relaxing that I myself too enjoy building castles with my kids.
Building blocks could be one of the creative exercises for brain. These magnetic building blocks are one of the best buys I have so far. My kids love playing with these and build as many castles, houses, zoo, garage, hospitals, schools and you name it. There is wide range of magnetic building blocks in market but if you are looking for large number of pieces then this will be the best one you can get in this price. There are 120 different shapes of blocks, this set also has two car bases what also fascinate kids. The blocks are sturdy enough that kids can play for years. If your kids also like to build, this might be the good investment towards toys you wont regret.
What I like about these blocks is that kids can play in many ways with them. Whether they build buildings, make vehicles, aero plane, trains or make any of their own creations. These blocks are colorful and flexible. I have two sets of these blocks at home that my kids like to play for hours with them.
Art and Craft
If your kids also love to draw, color and art base activities like mine. I would like to add these few findings in this post.
This art case has every kind of color what kids of this age like. All basic shades of crayons, markers and pencil colors. The box itself is very appealing. If your child likes to draw and color just gonna love it.
This you can say a ultimate art set. This kit is designed with state-of-the-art materials. It has Grade A soft colored pencils, paper sheets,sturdy and robust stencils boards, sharpener, mechanical pen and 1 pencil case nicely pack in its case. Draw with stencils has enhanced my kindergartener drawing skills and coloring has always been his passion.
My preschooler is the biggest fan of Paw Patrol. His everything starts with paw patrol. This paw patrol sticker book set always makes him happier than ever. If your child is also crazy for any specific character or cartoon, stickers related to that is always a good idea to make him happy and busy at the same time.
please share in comments how you want to keep your kids busy and any new idea that would work for all of us.
