Trying to get a shower in without letting your kids destroy the house? Here are a few quick, easy ways to keep your littles busy and pass a few moments’ time.
1. Bake something
As a bonus, at the end of your activity there will be cupcaaaaaakes…
2. Come up with a secret handshake
This one’s especially good while you’re waiting in a line somewhere.
3. Visit a kid-friendly business
Most fire stations will let you visit. The post office is endlessly entertaining for a 2-year-old. Let your kiddos scan items at the self-service grocery store check-out line. Errands AND entertainment? Yes, please.
4. Let them style their hair
Get the gel out, give them a comb, let them go nuts.
5. Two words: Post-it Notes
For whatever reason, kids tend to love these. I keep a package of them in my purse for plane rides.
