Creative Ways To Keep Children Busy March 16, 2017

Whether you have a bunch of your own little tykes or if you’re babysitting, keeping two or more kids busy can be quite a mission. There are a few things you can do to distract them long enough to go make yourself a cup of coffee. Arts and Crafts are always a nice way to keep kids busy. If you don’t want to risk leaving them with things like glue and scissors, make custom stickers that they can put on their papers to create custom artwork. This will keep them busy for a few minutes up to an hour, depending on how creative they are and how much you give them to work with.

Active video games are a fun way to keep them busy while playing with them. Sports games, dancing games and other fun motion detecting games can be played indoors to keep children busy while simultaneously tiring them out, which will make it easier to get the m to sleep later on. Once they start to get tired, you can put on a movie and make them a big bed in front of the TV and they’ll eventually drift off. Try to pick a more relaxed movie that won’t get them reenergized. Calm animated movies like Spirited Away or A Tigger Movie are good picks if you want them to drift off peacefully. Once they’re fast asleep, you can put the movie and the lights off and enjoy the rest of the evening relaxing after a hard day of looking after a group of kids.

Of course, if they are your own kids, falling asleep in front of the TV every night isn’t a good habit to make, but it’s the easiest way to get them to sleep when you’re babysitting.
