100 Fun Activity Ideas To Do With Your Kids

Investing purposeful meaningful time with your youngster’s can never be replaced. Regardless of the amount of the toys they may have, the money you give them, and buying them things all the time.  It will never measure up to just being with you.

Do I spend each waking minute connecting with my children? No – a long way from it. I have confidence in the benefit of educating my kids to have individual play time as well.  They have to learn that someone will not always be with them to keep them entertained at every waking moment.  All things considered, I have a house to keep up, grown-up connections to cultivate, and additionally a drive to seek my individual advantages and business interests. I do, in any case, try to invest a few standard openings of energy with them day by day.

Do you ever get stuck wondering, what should we do?  Or, what is there to do, and the kids screaming “IM BORED”? Of course, every parent does.  Today’s society has put us into a technological world where we have almost forgotten how to have fun, find games to play, free things to do, just going outside, and enjoying the grass between our toes.

I have compiled a list of 100 different fun activities for kids that I used to do as a child, and things I have done with my children as well.

Yours Truly,
