Parents, how's your summer going? Enjoy a fun family vacation or staycation? Ready for school to start? As we approach summer's halfway point, you may be tired of working as a full-time entertainment director and concierge for your kids.
Sure, you could buy the latest gaming system and leave them planted in front of the TV or computer all day. That is low-maintenance entertainment for your children, as all you have to do is occasionally feed and water them. However, constant gaming is bad for your kids in the long run, especially younger ones. Sending them out to catch monsters in Pokémon Go could result in some real-world terrors.
We all know that when you buy a new toy, younger children are just as likely to play with the box the toy came in as they are the toy itself. Why not encourage that creativity with these simple and inexpensive entertainment methods?
Keeping your kids busy can be a lot of work, but it is a lot less work if you teach them how to use their creativity and give them simple supplies to let them find their own entertainment options. It is also better for the experimentation, critical thinking, and creative skills they will need to succeed in the world. All you have to do is maintain a supply stash and do a little extra cleaning. That seems like a fair trade, doesn't it?
