Simply gather all the toys that require cleaning, a bucket of soapy water and some colourful sponges, and get down to do a little scrubbing with your child. It’s amazing how an activity that you’ve been petrified of all this while can give your little champ all the happiness in the world.
2. Sugar, spice and everything nice
What’s half as good as binging on cakes? Baking some, maybe. It’s funny how ingredients and mixing them up can bring a spontaneous smile on your child’s face. Regardless of whether you’re doing it right, the thought of mashing all those ingredients in an unabashed manner seems very appealing to kids. Don’t forget the icing in all its colourful magnificence — red, blue, green, yellow. Spare none.
3. Indoor camping
The concept of indoor camping grows on you, and before you know it, you’re gleefully putting up tents in your room. Let your child have a day of indoor camping with storybooks, candies, hot chocolate, and some toys.
