Activities With Kids’ Introduction

Welcome to Silver Lake’s activities with kids! We strive to provide real-life useful tips on activities that are fun for you and your child that won’t make you run toward your wine stash…at least not until their bedtime. We hope you enjoy it, and we encourage conversation on what works best for you too.

So, let’s begin…

Whether you have kids or are a caregiver, we can all agree that after a while being with kids all day can start to eat away at your brain cells. Am I right or am I right?

Artsy activities can be great and don’t involve too much of a mess and can actually be quite therapeutic. But what happens when you have a child that doesn’t exactly feel like sitting down and drawing on a piece of paper with you?

Some children like most adults I know can’t exactly focus their attention on simple actives and need to do something that’s more involving. (I believe they call that procrastination in the adult world). You can always take a crack at baking or cooking! Although, it will probably take you 5X longer at least your child will eventually learn how to cook for themselves and you won’t have to worry about them ordering Chinese 3 times a week once they decide to move out…* cough cough *

If you live in a home where you have access to a yard gardening is also a great way to pass the time. I mean unless you’re like me and can’t stand the thought of being outside on a hot summers day worrying about which horrifying flying insect is going to eat you alive. I’m starting to love the idea of rocking it out indoors.

At least, we can all agree that no matter what you do or how you spend your day your child will love you. Once 8 PM rolls around putting your feet up and pouring yourself a glass of cold wine and turning on your favorite tv show that doesn’t include some child animated character who truly needs adult supervision in their life will be the second highlight of your day.

Until next time, XOXO
