There’s nothing little ones love more than creative play. Not only do children’s games occupy tiny hands on rainy days, they also occupy little minds helping them grow big and tall in both imagination and creativity. If you are looking for a few easy and inexpensive ways to add some fun to your day, here are a few of our favorite do-it-yourself children’s games especially for your tiny tot.
The Great Dino Hunt and Dig
Say goodbye to those grocery bags filled with last year’s plastic Easter eggs and put those dust bunny collectors to good use. Fill plastic eggs with mini plastic dinosaurs, which can be easily found at dollar stores or the party aisle of your local supercenter. Hide eggs outdoors for springtime fun or indoors for the perfect solution to the rainy day blues. Get creative and hide eggs in the sandbox for a real paleontologist dig.
* Money Saving Tip: Add to the fun of your dino themed day with a few of our educational coloring pages and Barney the Dinosaur.
Mom’s Favorite Tidy up Game
Can’t seem to get your messy Monet to clean up his crayons? Here is a fun way to get him moving. Call out a color and then start the kitchen timer for one minute. Your child will then have one minute to race to put away all the toys of that color into his toy box. Continue to call out colors and reset the timer until the last toy is placed into the bin. Reward your child for “beating the clock” with a prize or an ice-cream cone.
* Quick Change Tip: Keep him interested in tidying up with this quick spin on the Tidy up Game. Place separate bins in his room for a quick toss/sorting colors game. Cleaning and learning never seemed so fun! (This variation works best with smaller and softer toys that won’t damage walls if he happens to miss the bin.)
