{Ideas for the Activities with the Kinder}

The title says it all really! The kids and I have loads of fun painting, drawing, playing with Lego, Play Doh, gardening, jumping on the trampoline, baking cakes etc., but sometimes it's handy to have a few activities up your sleeve that don't take much organising and that will pass the time for half an hour or so whilst dinner cooks or whatever.

Here are some of the suggestions that I've come up with, lots others can be found on my Ideas board on Pinterest. Do come and say Hello and check out my other boards whilst you're there :)

  1. Fantastic ideas for the kids. I love them. I am definitely going to try some of these out with my two. Always great to see new ideas for them as I feel sometimes I get into a rut of making them do the same things. I love the body tracing....your little one is so pleased!!!
