Ideas on keeping children entertained indoors

 Are you a stay at home or home school mom? Maybe you just need ideas on keeping your children entertained or off the electronics at home more. I would love to help!


Children learn a lot by playing. I also love how creative they can get with just simple items you may have around the home.

Just to be on the safe side I always make sure my house always has sidewalk chalk, coloring books, homeschooling project, DIY kits, bubbles and bath toys. But that even gets old sometimes.

Consider starting a mom's group and host play dates at your own home. This can also help moms some money when they do not have to pay admission costs meeting up at zoos or play places.

Meet other moms for play dates!
When my son was a baby I did not know many friends in the state we lived at the time so I started a moms group and posted about it online. My apartment building had a club house so I would meet up with moms for play dates or coffee.

Check out these toys and ways to make staying in way more fun!

Dressing up can be so much fun for small children. They can become their favorite super heroes or princesses. These make for adorable photographs for mom and dad to enjoy. I used to love dress-up clothes when I was a little girl. I would even have those plastic high-heels and a jewelry box on my bicycle. What can I say?  love fashion. :)
