  • Arts and crafts is always one that’s fun


  • We do lots of drawing and craft ideas from this site. So easy and entertains her h
    For hours after we have finished making them


  • WE look for free things as much as possible. We pack a picnic and catch a train. The ride a ferry, picnic and return home. We love to get out of the house. The museum offer free play and kids exhibits. A bus to a different park with a good playground is an adventure!


  • set up an indoor or outdoor obstacle course where the child gentle taps a soft ball around and in and out the course and comes back to the start. Kids loved being timed too – gives a challenge. P
    Play keep the balloon off the floor, bubbles, cooking activities are always fun – particularly no bake bliss balls, slices, fruit skewers etc.


  • Beach time sand castles the park


  • My son (4 years) love Lego! I try do let my kids make mess with crafty stuff, sometimes play dough, playing outside. Snacks haha. I make my kids have rest time after lunch, napping or reading books quietly, which is a good break time for myself too. I actually find my kids easier without screens. My son gets in bad moods whenever I let him watch TV!


  • Painting or arts and crafts?


  • Playground, books, drawing, Lego building, cooking, crafts.. there is so much to do that doesn’t involve a screen.


  • You’re asking how to keep a 3yo entertained? It is the easiest thing in the world, generally whatever you do, they’ll happily tag along and join in


  • Things I do with my 3 yr old. Craft time. Baking simple cookies. Gardening. Playgrounds. Play dough (including making it). Hide and seek. Building with blocks. Play dates.
