Re: Please help me keep these boys busy!

Yup a 3y/o boy just won't sit still the same way a 3y/o girl will. I have 2 boys now 7&8 but when younger a small creek in our back yard kept them busy we'd put on our mud boots and slash around where the water isn't higher than our boots. Course the creek isn't deeper than their waists. Are you up for messes? indoor "snowball" fights were a treat, just crumple up some old white paper and throw them at each other. How about bouncy balls up and down the hallway. Do you have room for a tricycle in the basement or other area of the house, if so those work wonders when you have to be indoors all day long (both when its over 90 or under 10 degrees). A small trampoline? Put up a ladder for a set of monkey bars indoors or out. blanket tents although mine still lose interest quickly in them. but mention having lunch in the tent and they are all up for building one. Even putting up your outdoor camping tent indoors and they find it fun to have a "fort".

I definitely don't mind messes at all (especially since I'll have extra family around to hang with the baby!)! Thanks for the great ideas! I'm actually started to look forward to their visit now
