It's Game Time

Brock is at the age where he constantly needs to be entertained. Without siblings to play with, it leaves me to do the entertaining. Which I LOVE, don't get me wrong. We are kinda worn out with going to parks, coloring, riding bikes, singing songs, reading books, and watching Elmo. He is getting board of all of his toys. So, I was thinking of more ways I could entertain him, when I got an amazing idea. I pulled out every ones friend, the search engine GOOGLE. Yes, I googled games for toddlers. I was amazed how many links pulled up. I wanted to play games that would keep him learning and let his imagination take over. The games I am playing now came from Fisher Price. Click here. There are many online games plus indoor/outdoor games to play. So I tried one........This game is the paper game. You get all kinds of different papers around the house. Computer paper, tin foil, wax paper, wrapping paper, construction paper, plastic wrap etc. Sit your child in a chair and had them one paper at a time. Let them do what they want with it. As you keep handing them paper they can feel the different textures, and nosies it makes. Show them how to fold and crinkle the paper. Brock seriously had a blast. We made paper airplanes, which he thought was the coolest thing ever! Here are some pictures of the fun we had.

These games have been a life saver. It's only 1/2 hour of the day, but he loves game time! I do too.

That sounds like a lot of fun. I'm going to have to try it with my 2 year old.
