Activities to Keep Mommy Sane

Posted on 02-02-2017

Look into these great activities to keep your little one busy while you accomplish your to-do list today:

  • Build a blanket fort. Blanket forts will never go out of style. Help them build a blanket fort, and then turn them loose to explore the blanket rooms! This is a minimal mess activity that requires a lot of imagination!
  • Make paper airplanes. You would be surprised by how much time can be spent on throwing paper airplanes! All you need is paper and plenty of room to watch them soar. If you have more than one little one, you can organize mini paper-airplane flying contests. Try making the airplanes out of coloring book paper; they fly way better than those that are made of copy paper!
  • Watch movies. Movies and learning videos are a great way to keep your little ones busy for extended periods of time with minimal effort. Just be sure to pick a movie they love!
  • Playing outside is one of the healthiest ways to keep your little ones busy. If you have a safe back yard, you can let them run around and play for as long as their imagination keeps them going! Swing on the swing set, play tag, build sand castles in the sand box; the possibilities are plentiful!
  • Bake cookies! Bake them for grandparents and neighbors, and whoever else might enjoy homemade cookies. This is a messier option, but it’s a great idea if you have some extra time and you’re feeling ambitious! Everyone appreciates homemade cookies!

These activities can be done whenever you’re feeling like you need a little bit of a break from the things that go along with raising little ones. You can also do things for yourself like mommy dates, napping when the children nap to catch up on missing sleep, and never be afraid to ask for help. Life can be rough, but we are here to help you make it a little bit more enjoyable.
