plain jane Posted January 14, 2011 Share Posted January 14, 2011 I need some help coming up with evening activities for my 4yo and 2yo. With the weather not being so great these days we're not always outside every day and by the time evening comes the kids are fairly bored and restless... and we all know what happens then. ;) So, I'm looking to put together a list of "tricks" and things to do with them that are fairly calming. We tend to play games together in the evenings or do puzzles or playdough but depending on how the day went, they're not wanting to cooperate and play a game without fighting. I do sit and read to them as well but there again, that only lasts for so long. I don't want to do movies or Wii near bedtime because my 4yo has a hard time turning them off, even if he's been warned beforehand that it's time. My usual tactics of pawning them off on daddy only go so far because some days dh is really worn out from work. He's usually really involved with them but I need some ideas when he's working late or needs some quiet time himself. So... gimme your best ideas? Bath time? Early bed? :tongue_smilie: Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
