I am a Mon of three little darlings at home on maternity leave. My kids are four, three and five weeks old!. We have to think of loads of ways to entertain ourselves. On rainy days which there are plenty of in little green Ireland we really have to think hard!. Four colours in a row is a good game, this obviously is only for two players and not suitable for small children and must be supervised play! Then there is story time where we read a story and the kids must listen. Then I give them the book and they must make up their own story from the pictures on the page. They love this and it works best for good picture books. They remember some of the story that had been read previously then whatever else comes into their head!. This can be hilarious and truly inspiring to hear a snip-it of your children's vast imagination. Playing shop or restaurant is another good game and you have everything you need in your own home for this game. Just look around, a box and a calculator for the cash register, some small boxes or real canned foods from your cupboard and a bag. Pieces of paper for money!. A note book for the restaurant a apron!
Try these out they are really good fun!
Then there is always TV when all else fails!
