Kids love spending time with their parents. They feel the most secure with them and enjoy all those special moments together. For those who often wonder how to spend quality time with their kids here are some great tips.
Take them for a visit to the zoo. You are going to spend the entire day together so make sure to set up and carry stuff for a small picnic for you and the kids. This will be a fun and educational trip for the kids. At home get your kids to do a bit of baking together with you.
Bake a cake and let them help you mix some of the ingredients. Make sure you choose something that the kids will like to make and eat. Make them wear little chef hats during their baking.
Another way to have fun with the kids is to collect some old envelopes and papers and paint and decorate them together. Children love to get creative and will enjoy making cards for you and your spouse.
Try growing a plant with them. Buy them small pots and let them fill seeds and mud in to them. Give them a watering can and they will take care of their plant everyday.
A great way to bond with the kids is to get on to your terrace or garden and connect a hose pipe and get wet together. The kids will enjoy watching their parents getting wet more than getting wet themselves.
This is all part of family bonding and goes a long way in keeping a healthy relationship with the kids. The kids will appreciate the time you spend with them and will look forward to doing silly things with you.
Play a group game together as a whole family. Make sure to involve the father as well. Also read books together. Play some music and dance together and the kids will have a great time.
These are all things you can do with your kids in the holidays when they are bored and have nothing to do. It is better than have them sitting and lazying around and watching television. Plan activities before the holidays start.
