Today’s advanced technology with it’s motion sensors, sensory pads, audio and visual capabilities can often lead to the misperception that modern is better, especially with the case of toys and games for kids. Yes, I admit, with the invention of the iPad, the task to keep your child entertained is on cruise control.
Pros: You can be rest-assured that your child will be entertained, sitting, and behaving.
Cons:You lose that sense engagement with your child.
Sometimes simpler is better and less is more. Let’s try putting down the iPad and other advanced technological toys that came out of a box and let’s be creative with the most simplest and fun toys/games that can be just as effective and possibly even more memorable.
Never run out of fun things to do with these clever ideas! Engaging, interactive, and fun, these simple games/toys will provide your child with hours and hours of amusement.
- Hang a bedsheet across the room and turn off the lights. Use a flashlight and throw a puppet show!
- Get your kids outside with a bucket and they will find things to do with it. Pour water in and out of it. Collect things like rocks, seeds, bugs, frogs, and leaves.
- Collect pillows, stack them up, jump on them, hit each other with them, and when you get tired, take a quick nap.
