Every mother (and father!) knows that moment when your mini me tugs on your pant leg for the bazillionth time in the last 5 minutes.. You feel your eyebrows raise as your eyes get big, you take that deeeeep breath, turn and put on your best smile.. But then what?!
This sounds like a job for….
ABOVE: Who doesn’t love a good treasure hunt? Especially when the bounty is yummy treats! Make snack time fun by creating a pirate’s map that leads your child through a variety of snacks (in the order of your preference.. can’t skip around if you wanna get to the treasure!)
LEFT: Let the SUNSHINE in! How many different ways can you CELEBRATE the SUN?! Match up clothespins to bring out the sun rays, draw, spell, even paint the sunshine!
RIGHT: Jump into FUN with an Exercise Hunt! Create a routine to move from one location on the map to the next! Maybe you even collect coins along your travels to trade in for treasure at the end!
Hop on One Foot
Shiver me timbers!
Every parent needs a treasure trove of ideas for those days when all the toys in the chest just don’t cut it!
