Parenting tips: Four activities to keep your children busy at home

paperclipsIt’s school holiday time and so I know that busy parents are looking for things to do with their children.  It’s also an expensive time of the year with gifts to buy, celebrations to prepare for and perhaps you have that holiday to pay off.

Here are some ideas I shared on an Expresso TV interview earlier this year that will cost you nothing and will grab your children’s attention and imagination.  Some of them are actually things we did as kids ourselves:

  • Paper clip chains
  • Paper/cardboard and a punch
  • Paper rubbings with a crayon or pencil
  • Jelly Tot and toothpick constructions

Have fun at home with your children this holiday season.
