Today on Kelly’s Korner the theme for the weekly “Show Us Your Life” entry is Kids Activities. As a stay at home mom of a toddler I have to try to keep Cady busy all year round, not just the summers. It is definitely one of the toughest parts of the job. Trying to find interesting things for her to do.Its even more difficult when those things need to be done without my involvement, like when I am cooking dinner.
One of my favorite activities to keep Cady busy while I am busy is to set up an art station in the kitchen. I take one of her big sheets of paper and stick it to the fridge with magnets.
I then let her loose with crayons and stickers (I stock up on stickers at the Dollar Store or Target’s Dollar Spot)
It is much more likely to keep her entertained than setting her up in a different room because I am there to give my input and praise her beautiful work.
