Making weekends fun for Bella!

Saturday, March 09, 2013

Ah, its the weekend again.

As much as I do love weekends and spending time with Bella, I have to admit one thing.

I am a loser when it comes to entertaining Bella in the weekends.

Poor baby. Mommy is so clueless when it comes to making creative stuff for toddlers to play. Although there are a lot of things that I could come up with, I ended up not doing any. Most of the time we just played with whatever toys that we already have in the playroom.

I blame myself for thinking too much. Perhaps the thoughts of having to clean up when she is done makes me subconsciously avoid messy things. When in fact, those messy play things are usually the most fun and educational, you know, things like water play and water coloring.

Besides that I think I may have underestimated the skills of a 2 year old. Like for example when I come across some interesting activity like making a collage, I thought that a 2 year old may not be able to appreciate it yet. But then when I sit down and really think of it, I thought to myself "Who am I kidding?". Of course Bella can play with things like that, she probably have done it in school!

What a hopeless mom. Tskk....

So I think I am going to change this. I can't let this go on. This weekend I MUST do something for her.

As usual having Google and Pinterest as my best friends, here are the things that I plan to do with Bella this weekend :

1) Water play (or a soapy water play) with cups, funnels, spray bottles and whatever things that I can find at home (oh she is going to love this!)

2) Make a sheep collage with paper bits and cotton balls. I found this amazing guide on how to draw cartoon animals from Pinterest!

3) Make a threading game with ribbons and paper rings.


We are going to have loads of fun :) I am excited already. Haha.

So how about you? What kind of things do you do to entertain your toddlers at home? I need suggestions! :)
