Spending quality time with your kids is important, and you don’t have to look far for things to do. As a matter of fact, there are bushels of items you have lying around the house that can be great fun for both you and your child.
Do you remember building forts in childhood? Most everyone does. Unlike many things, this has not changed with time. Kids love building forts! All you need to build a fort is a couch, chairs, and some bed sheets. Your children don’t need much to get their imaginations going, and building a fort is great for that.
Regardless their ages, reading to your kids is universally hailed as one of the single-best things you can do to both spend time together and learn. If your children are old enough, you can take turns reading to one another.
Young children almost always want to help their parents with one thing or another. Whether you’re working in the garage, washing the car, or cooking the kitchen, ask your kids if they’d like to help. Not only will you be spending time together, but you’ll be able to teach them important life skills they’ll put to good use when they’re older. (Take advantage while they’re young, because many outgrow the desire to do chores in their teen years!)
If you want your child to really flex the muscles of their imaginations, playing pretend, or make-believe, is perfect. You can even add little props and items that enhance the activity like Pony Up Daddy.
Pony Up Daddy is a high-quality, soft, flexible neoprene saddle that’s both fun and durable. The saddle is designed to fit on an adult’s back and quickly strap on or off across the front of their belly.
Let your child’s imagination run free as they sit on your back and pretend they’re a cowboy, a knight, a pirate, or whatever their heart’s desire. With a wild imagination and Pony Up Daddy, the options for fun are limitless.
