5 Activities To Try When Babysitting (On a Budget)

GET ARTISTIC
Finger painting, macaroni art, paper-mache, sidewalk chalk, you name it and they will love it! Get the creative juices flowing and see what master-pieces the little ones create! If possible, consider placing the works of art on the refrigerator for all to see!

GET OUTSIDE
If the sun is shinin’ get outside! Don’t forget hats, sunglasses, water, and SPF! One of the best ways to keep the kids busy is to simply spend some quality time outside. This could be the beach, park, trails, wherever nature takes you!

GET COOKIN’
Have the little ones help prepare meals. It’s important to include them in essential daily activities where they can learn valuable skills. Try new foods and sample the ingredients as you’re preparing the final product! Enjoy teaching them about where food comes from and what flavors are their favorite! Why shouldn’t work be fun too?

GET IMAGINATIVE
Simple games like hide-and-seek, fort building & dress-up are sometimes the easiest and most affordable ways to entertain the kids, especially on rainy days! These games can occur anywhere and all it takes is a little imagination!

GET ACTIVE
Physical activities & play are sure to make your kiddo’s smile! Indoors or outdoors activities focused on physical fitness will amount to tons of fun and are sure to ease the bedtime blues. Run through the sprinkler, rollerblade, dance, or play sports to get that heart rate up and burn some of that energy!
