Raising kids and looking after them all day is downright exhausting. You have to be in pretty good shape, have your daily schedule together, and be at top energy every day. But, we’re all human. Sometimes, if you’re sick, pregnant, or just feeling off, it can be extremely difficult to deal with crazy children! But, there are ways to divert their energy (into meaningful activities) while not taxing yourself. Check out this list of ideas by Frugal Fun 4 Boys:
-Ask for help! If you’re on bedrest or sick for an extended period, don’t be afraid to ask for help!
-Lay on the floor with a pillow while they build with blocks, etc.
-Head to the library for new books or movies
-Color or do crayon rubbings
-Sidewalk chalk. You can spend time outside without running around!
