Definitely sharing this! My 3yrs old likes to paint the exterior of the house with water and a paintbrush.
I used to do this for hours when I was a kid! So much fun!!
Its really great to see so many activities. This list should keep us busy and hopefully distract her from the doctor game When I was younger, we used to get a glass of washing up liquid and food colouring, blow bubbles through a straw and put a piece of paper underneath, keep blowing until the bubbles overflow and you get a lovely picture xx.
What about ball games. There is no mention of that. Love the ideas it should keep my bunch busy no matter what the weather is. This is a pretty basic game to play by yourself when all you have is a deck of cards to entertain yourself. Though this is typically a two-person game, you can play it by yourself. Start by making two rows of five cards in front of you, making sure the cards are face-down. Draw a card from the deck and replace its numerical location in front of you.
For example, if you draw a 6 place it in the six spot and take the card that is there, which may be an 8 and place it in the eight spot. If you pick up a card that has already been placed, for example a second 6, then you discard it and draw another from the deck. Once you have completed finding all ten cards, you shuffle and put down nine cards, playing in the same way you did before as you search for nine cards, not ten. To set up for this game, place four cards in a pile at each point in the clock shape from to with four cards in the middle.
Each spot on the clock correlates to a number.
You finally got the whole crew to agree on the same day and time, now you just have to find the…. Play Simon Says. If there are no more cards in the middle, the dealer replenishes them. We hope you enjoyed making these and that your baby has fun exploring them! Four Corners is a solitary card game. I have a three year old niece and all she ever wants to do is play doctors with me.
J: Q: K: goes in the middle. Start by flipping over the top card in the middle pile and placing it at the bottom of the stack it correlates to.
For example, if you flip over a five, then place it under the pile at and flip over the top card and place it where it belongs. The goal is to get each pile stacked with sets of four that correlate to that location before getting all the kings in the center.
If you get the kings there before you get all the other cards in their places, then you lose. Four Corners is a solitary card game. However, they are facing a team with their tails up, fresh from a well deserved 1-all draw against serious title contenders Mighty Gunners in their last league encounter before the Christmas break.
Tigers emerged winners.
