Our kids are visiting from Florida this week and Ambrynn (if you can believe it) is now 5 years old. Hence the inspiration for this week’s theme: 10 Ways to Entertain a Child.
- Read a story together. I wouldn’t be much of a librarian if this wasn’t first on my list.
- Cook something. This is not that easy for me as I prefer to be alone in the kitchen but it can be fun to cook or bake together.
- Play a game. You could play a board game or make up a game – either way this is sure to be entertaining.
- Go to the beach. Lots of stuff to do while at the beach!
- Go to the zoo. We did this last year when the kids visited and we all had a great time.
- Do something crafty together. A little knitting, crocheting or sewing – if they learn to do it on their own you might even get some quiet time.
- Go for a bike ride.
- Sit in the back yard and watch for birds. This is a favorite for our family.
- Take a walk. A little exercise, a little scenery, a little entertaining.
- Just hang out and talk. You’ll be amazed at the things they will say!
