It's raining, his friends are gone for the weekend and you'd like to see him doing something other than watching TV?

How to occupy your child while still tending to your plans?

Prepare the following activities for hours of fun!

1. Window paint that does not stain

Kids love to mix bright colors just as they like to manipulate special textures and light effects.

But what we like a little less is having to clean up all the messes! Thus, if you'd like to keep your children busy while you tend to the day's chores and your To-Do list, here's one great idea.

What you'll need:

  • pots of gouache (poster paint) of various colors
  • Ziploc type resealable bags

Remember to never take your eyes off a child who is playing near even a small amount of collected water in a container he or she can get into, always watch a toddler play in the water, even if it's just a small amount.

Toddlers can have fun for hours playing with thread and ribbons of all sizes. This allows them to improve their dexterity, a bonus!
