Being a mother of 4 gorgeous children ranging between the ages of 4
and 15 years old, there’s quite often times when the kids start to get a
little bit bored, and I have to come up with things to keep them happy,
entertained, and occupied.
Throughout the years, we’ve come up with lots of things we can do
together as a family that don’t cost the earth. A lot of them are even free.
Some things we’ve thought up ourselves, other things are ideas passed
down through generations and yet other things are what we have been
lucky enough to learn about from various books, people and situations.
At first I thought it would be hard work coming up with so many ideas
for you to use and adapt to suit your own needs, but once I got started it
actually turned out to be quite easy. The few times I did get stuck, I just
asked the kids what kind of things we usually do, and they were quick
enough to remind me.
I’m sure both you and your child/children (or even your grandchildren)
will find lots of great things to do together. Discuss the ideas within this
book to see if they have any particular wants and needs in the quest to
cure their boredom, and they may come up with even more things to do.
I’ve compiled this book with my four children in mind, but don’t worry if
you only have one child. A lot of the things are totally possible for a
single child, and you could always invite a couple of his or her friends
along to make it more fun.
