There are so many ways to keep your little ones busy to get things done around the house. I will let my 4-year-old get on his Kindle for a little while and watch that ‘Mommy Finger‘ video or other fun videos, from time-to-time, but I also like it when he does other things.
I try to have educational toys for him to play with or toys that allow him to use his imagination. Those toys are the best option as they usually keep my little boy quite busy for longer periods of time, so I can get things done!
Take a peek at my list below and let me know what works for you and your littles, to keep them busy, while you get stuff done around the house!
Keeping Little Kids Busy Anytime Of The Year
Pretend & Play Teaching ATM Bank. My little one loves this! It comes with money, coins, and an ATM card! It does need AA batteries which it doesn’t come with. This keeps my little one very busy as he counts his money, puts his money into the ATM machine and takes it back out again. He just loves it!
The ATM machine is a real, working machine with a large LCD screen. This helps your child practice early math and money skills. It features coin recognition, a mechanical bill feeder and pretends thumbprint sensor. So much fun and great for kids ages 3 and up! Retails for $39.99 on Amazon.com or you can learn more about this educational toy on the Learning Resource Website.
HABA Ball Track Bathing Bliss! This is lots of fun when taking a bath, for the little ones! My boy just finds this to be one of the best things since bubbles in his bath!
You can easily attach the suction cup tracks to the bath tub wall and that is when the fun begins! The ball flows down the tracks and your child can determine how they want the tracks to go because the tracks can be rearranged however your child pleases! The bathing bliss water course is interchangeable with the HABA Ball Track as well as other pieces which are all sold separately.
This fun set includes 1 spiral curve, 1 seesaw bucket, 1 track, 1 ladle and 1 water ball. The water ball is colorful and fun to look at as it glides down the track! This fun set retails for $24.99 on Amazon.com. You can also purchase it on their website.
Attach the suction cups and the fun begins! Ball track pieces can be rearranged however, you like. Children determine the course of the water and the water ball!
The bathing bliss water course is interchangeable with the Haba Ball track 300907 as well as other complimentary pieces (all sold separately).
Contents include 1 spiral curve, 1 seesaw bucket, 1 track, 1 ladle and 1 water ball. The waterfall contains colorful rattling marbles and two holes for filling with water.
Bathtime has never been more fun! Suitable for ages 3 and up.
