I am a mum of 2 very active little boys who are 5yo & 7yo. Most weekends, weather permitting, I just have to take them out somewhere by bus & train. If they stay home, my eldest just plays games on his iPad or laptop. They do get bored very easily. My eldest especially. My 5yo gets very cranky of his brother doesn’t play with him or give him any attention. My 7yo has a very mild case of Aspberger’s. So… He tends to be anti- social at times. Even if they do some crFt or play with blocks, they get sick of it after a while. That’s why I resort in going out with them all the time on weekends. God help us on Xmas holidays. Trying to find stuff to do will be a nightmare, as I don’t really go travelling anywhere on weekdays, unless they are meeting friends at a play centre somewhere. That’s when I take the car, S public transport is more expensive on weekdays. Has anyone else got suggestions on how to keep kids busy at home too? It’s hard, coz all they wanna do is either play games, and the other stuff they get bored of quickly…..
