Now what?…a little TV is OK with me, but we aren’t big tv people. Again, with a little PREP work the night before, there can be plenty of opportunities for PLAY. We’ve made a weekend list of possible activities. We took pictures of special toys, craft items, books, etc. that are used ONLY on the weekends. Post the pictures on cardstock and hang up on the refrigerator. IF your child needs an idea for an activity, they can LOOK at the poster to help. Lay out supplies on Fri. evening before bed so that your child will know where they are.
The plan never runs completely without assistance, but it does offer a moment for a break at the end of a work week. Children like the independence of helping themselves; and you MAY just have a chance to sneak in a few pages of your favorite book. Blessings for a great rest of your weekend!
