It so happens that the weather in the street in no way contributes to long walks in the fresh air. At such moments, you have to run out and make real performances for your beloved child, so that every minute there is no mother, I do not know what I want.
Manifestation of fantasy
Fortunately, my son is not deprived of fantasy and has become accustomed to independently find entertainment. True, all the same, only I turn away, he is trying to do some nastiness. Natural harm and awl in the pope are activated at the most inappropriate moments.
After all, I also need to eat and cook, and on weekends, it happens, or in the evening after the garden, I also have to hand over the reports – an abnormal working day turns out. It is not always possible to spend every moment around a son.
And so it happened in our country that we organize all kinds of fun, in which a child can play independently with minimal help from me. I am not talking about paints and plasticine right now – here the slightest loss of vigilance is fraught with scraping the table, chair and carpet on the floor.
In the end, I thought of a brilliant way. Since standard toys quickly bother us (I will write about this next time), I decided to create original toys from ordinary and familiar things.
So, now on the couch erected highchair, covered with a blanket. We alternate between a tent and a pirate ship, depending on our mood. The son is delighted, but I can safely go about my business.
While the baby is actively floating on his sofa ship, I can cook and eat and air the room (I’m not afraid that a draft will get a son under a blanket on the couch).
As an accessory, we have a belt of my robe, tied over pantyhose or shorts (babe shoves his gun or sword for him, or both at once) and my favorite old scarf, which I somehow brought from the sea – this is we now headgear.
In general, such active games are obtained here with a minimum of costs and preparations. Son really like it.
Any other suggestions are very annoying, but for something large-scale such as football or scooter / bicycle riding, with all my son and my desire, there is simply not enough apartment space.
Well, a separate item in our home leisure are books. I just adore reading, son, probably went to me. He likes to lie down next to me on the sofa and listen to fairy tales, looking at pictures. This, by the way, is one of the few activities that can enthrall him for longer than ten minutes.
Do you know any ways to enthrall children within the four walls?
