Summer is upon us and we can’t wait to start playing outdoors with the kids! Our Summers usually get booked up pretty fast, but we always manage to find time to spend some quality time with the kids.
But as much as we want to spend every waking minute with our kids, we still need a break when we come home from work. So here are 10 activities for your kids to do while you take a little breather after work:
Let’s start off with this post! It’s always so hard to find a great father’s day gift, especially when your kids are too young to come up with something themselves. This guide will help you find the perfect thing for dad!
This activity takes no time to setup and will keep your kids entertained for a long time. Even better, take this outside if the weather is nice enough!
3. Rainbow Valentines Hearts | Days with Grey
I know it’s not Valentine’s day, but this activity by Days with Grey was so fun! Plus, rainbow colours can be used ANY TIME of year!
This was a great activity to do on a Saturday morning! Kept Little J busy long enough for us to prep breakfast! This one includes a baby and sibling play variation!
Continuing with the toilet paper theme, here’s another toilet paper activity to do with your toddler. This also takes under 5 minutes to setup!
6. Easy Alphabet Matching Activity | Busy Toddler
Busy Toddler always has the most simple and creative ideas, and this one doesn’t disappoint! We pulled this one out for at least a week for Little J and he loved it every time!
This is such a fun nature discovery activity! It takes no time to put together and will keep your kids (both babies and toddlers) interested on your next walk to the park!
This activity is so easy to put together! The post provides you with steps to make your own bingo cards or, if you’re a subscriber, there’s a free download option if you’re not the DIY type!
9. Laundry Hamper Fishing | Munchinks and Moms
This was suuuuch a fun game! Plus we turned it into sibling play when Little N still wasn’t crawling around by simply putting him in the basket and having Little J fish the toys and give them to him.
10. Hands on Counting Game | Days with Grey
The great thing about Days with Grey’s activities is that they’re easily adaptable to the level and interest of your child. We made this game Paw Patrol themed. How will you adapt yours?
