I am babysitting a very busy and playful 4 year old this week…any ideas on what I can do to keep him occupied?
I have a four year old son and he loves to be read to, play play dough, paint, use sidewalk chalk, bubbles, play in the water or pool, help me cook, bake, ride bikes, go for a walk, explore the outdoors looking at flowers and bugs, have an ice cream sundae, eat a happy meal, go for an ice cream cone, wash the car, decorate a white t-shirt, make a creation of recyclable material, make up stories, make puppets and create a puppet show, play with animals, go to the park and feed the ducks, play trucks, trains, play dress-up (he’s the dad, I’m the mom or kid), go to the zoo.basically anything…let your mind wander. 4 year olds love anything.
If you want more ideas go to the library and they have tons of books for fun things to do that don’t cost money.
Have fun and be a kid yourself!
I have a 5 year year old son who is absolutley crazy over any type of superheros. Assuming its a boy, pretend play is great. Hide and seek and tag are great too. Have fun and good luck!!
COLOR BOOKS AND EXERCIZE…HAVE HIM RUN ALOT IT TIRES HIM OUT AND HELL SLEEP BETTER.DONT LET HIM SLEEP IN THE LATE AFTERNOON THOUGH…CAUSE THEN HE WONT SLEEP AT NIGHT…AND HIS MOM WILL HATE YOU.
