I am terrible at coming up with creative things to do with the kids. They don't really like to sit still for long, so reading a book, doing a craft, anything that requires sitting for a period of time is tough. I am looking forward to the warmer weather so that we can go to the park and they can get some of their energy out and maybe then we can do some sitting activities. One of my friends over at http://thedoublescoop.com/ has some really great creative ideas that I really need to try out. I am hoping that she will share some of her sources for these creative ideas. One of my goals is to spark my kids creative imagination and help to maintain it. I also want to provide educational things for them and make it a fun way to learn. I'm still getting used to Michael's new schedule with pre-school , but I think that once i get used to his schedule, I will be making up a schedule for us so that we can have fun, do some educational things, and get these kids to do more than jus trun amd jump and climb and move. Maybe while Michael is at pre-school I can go to the book store with just the twins, though I have to say I took just the twins grocery shopping today and it wasn't that much easier. I am going to pick up the book "Rainbow Fish" and attempt to do an activity from http://thedoublescoop.com/.
Any suggestion for fun things to do with active toddlers/preschoolers are more than welcome. Any ideas on how to get them to sit and listen to a story are very much needed!
