Keeping kids entertained over the winter can be rather hard at times. I'm finding that the little boys are finding it especially hard, and they want to run around and burn off steam. My little girls are quite happy to craft all day, however the boys take a little more entertaining.
I have however found an activity that keeps them busy for hours. It was set up for the little boys, however the girls love it too.
I have a container, which has small wood chips in it. I have a few small diggers and trucks, along with a range of small plastic bugs, dinosaurs and animals. The boys spend hours using the diggers moving the wood chips around, burying the animals and finding 'treasure'. It like having a little mini sandpit inside.
I brought everything from either The Warehouse or K Mart, and it cost around $12 to set up. Well worth the hours of entertainment the boys have had from this!
So if your at a loss as to what to do with your wee guy on a rainy day, or you a studying mum and need some peace and quiet, give this a go!
