GAMES TO PLAY WITH YOUR KIDS THAT YOU MAY HAVE FORGOTTEN
Sometimes we get so busy with everyday life that we forget the simplest things that we can do to spend time with our kids. I feel like TV, iPads and other electronic devices tend to take over our kids free time. Today I decided to put my phone and laptop away. I turned the TV off and got creative. My kids loved the one on one attention and had a blast playing different silly games. The great thing about these games is that they require either no supplies or very few.
I’ve put this list together to help keep them in mind when my kids need entertaining or have been spending too much time on their own. While putting this list together it brought back so many memories from my childhood. I grew up in a small town, in the country. I didn’t have neighbor kids to play with. I never went to Disney World. We were creative and played with actual toys and imagination all day everyday. I strive to raise my kids that way but find that it’s difficult. We can’t live in the country in a small town, we are a military family so we live where the Army tells us. By spending time with my kids playing these simple games I can bring a little of that lifestyle into their lives.
