We seem to have a plethora of plastic restaurant cups. They always seem to make there way home with us at the end of the meal. We have been having fun bowling with them this week. The boys have had fun stacking them and then bowling them over. If you don't have cups you could use plastic water bottles.
Boy #2's favorite toys always seem to be things that are not toys at all.....
He loves playing with measuring cups, bowls and empty paper towel rolls(I'm sure he would prefer it if it was a full roll of paper towels but I'm not that nice)
Sometimes we choose a board game from our collection. Sometimes it's hard to play board games with the little one, he likes to mess up the game pieces and that tends to throw his brother into a tizzy but once in a while we try anyway.
Boy #1 loves to do puzzles and mazes. He is actually very good at them. We got him a big book full of mazes and he has several puzzles to choose from too.
It's no shocker that i love the Internet and probably spend more time on my computer than i should but there are a few fun and educational sites for the boys as well. One of their favorites is Starfall.com Boy #1 gets onto this site at his school and he is the one that told me about it. It is fun and even the little one loves playing on this site with us.
And a lot of days after i pick boy #1 up from school and i can tell he is tired we just pick a favorite movie, pop some popcorn and relax on the couch. I love watching movies,even cartoons, so this is one of my favorite activities.
We are members of Netflix and recently got a blu-ray player that has direct access to all the Netflix watch instantly movies. They have a great selection of kids movies to watch instantly.
And lastly i run a sweat shop over here once in a while, he, he. Some days i just have a burst of energy and a very messy house and i enlist the help of two usually unwilling boys. But i have learned if there is a reward or allowance at the end of the cleaning spree it goes over much better. The prof is in the pic......
Have fun keeping your kiddo's entertained and look on the bright side.....it's almost SPRING!!! YEEE HAA!
