I'm always looking for activities for my children to keep them busy and to avoid them watching too much of the telly. Especially at night, I won't allow tv after dinner time. So there will be a window of a little spare time right before their bedtime routine.
I've gathered some ideas from the internet as usual and recently we did 'foot tracing'!
|First, I trace their foot and then I let them trace mine.|
|Then I let them trace my foot again on another piece of paper.|
|Decorate the traced foot with anything. Ring, bells. flowers, etc. As you can see the drawings are mine and Elizabeth's. But those colourful strokes are Joseph's. He prefers to decorate it that way, I guess. LOL.|
|All those tracing and decorating suddenly inspired them to have another drawing masterpiece. This is the outcome.|
Another activity we did was having fun with tapes. You can use any tape you want but I used cellophane tape. Cut a few strips and let him stick anywhere he wants. But of course be careful not to allow him to stick on precious stuff like books.
|Goofing around with the cellophane tape even before we started.|
|Joseph sticked it on my thigh. (Unflattering pic sorry.) And he along with other places like my body, floor, laundry basket, etc.|
Children like to keep themselves busy. Go on and try them. Have fun!
