Easy Activities To Enjoy With Your Kids


When you’re a busy Mom, you can sometimes find yourself wracking your brains on how to entertain your kids in the time you have. Sometimes, all you need is a little inspiration to be able to plan your week and keep life balanced.

Whether you work, have charity commitments, an active social life with your children or are even a Mompreneur, you can run out of idea for child-friendly activities. You still want to be able to spend quality time with your kids, without scheduling out massive chunks of time or spending a lot of money. So, instead, why not keep it simple with these easy activities that you’ll all enjoy.

Colouring

First of all, what about coloring? You might not think coloring is all that imaginative, but it can be so useful for helping your little ones to express their creativity. With adult coloring books that are designed for relaxing and destressing, you can join in on that too. You might even choose to paint, mold clay or make jewelry, whichever you choose will be a fun and enriching activity for your child, especially when you’re doing it with them.

Games

Good old-fashioned games are also another way for you to enjoy quality time with your children. They’re easy to set up, and you can play them in a matter of minutes or for hours on end. The trick is to choose a game that everyone can play with. If you have a family with a wide age range, say from three to thirteen, you’re going to want something that everyone can not only enjoy, but take part in too. Different sports or cornhole (look into boards here - letsplaycornhole.com/cornhole-boards) are ideal for various ages, meaning that everyone can be involved in activity time.

Movie Night

If you and your children are all quite busy in the daytime, it can be hard to fit in time for activities. So, why not make them a nighttime thing instead? If you’ve got young ones, this might be something you do at the weekend, earlier on in the afternoon. But, you can still have a lot of fun with movie night. Pick a film that you’ve all been dying to see, layout some snacks and get cozy on the couch. It might even give you so much needed rest too.

Fruit Picking

It could be another idea for a weekend, but heading out to pick fruit or vegetables can be a rewarding experience for the entire family. You can head to a fruit farm (find one nearest to you here - experience.usatoday.com/weekend/story/my-weekend-experience/2015/03/11/fruit-pick-it-yourself-around-the-usa/70167424/) and all pick strawberries or blueberries until your baskets are full. Then, you can always make up a snack when you get home or use your fruits for a recipe later on.

Baking

Baking might seem like a messy activity, but it doesn’t have to be. You can allow your little ones to be involved as they (or you) want to be. From cookies to cakes to even making a pie using the fruit you just picked, there are so many recipes that you can all make together. Plus, baking together can teach them new skills or help them to be a bit braver with different foods, making it a rewarding experience all round.
