Things to Do with Kids - While at Home
Kids Activities - Fun While at Home
I have two beautiful girls Annabelle (4) and Ella (2) that are the most important things in my life. But let's be honest running a business from home is not easy. I really try my best to do as much work during the day as I can so I do not have to stay up late every night.
One way I achieve this is with kids activities that keep them busy. Whether it be coloring, games, or toys I've got the basics down easy. his post is a roundup of activities to do with your kids that might be different than your everyday go to's.
All of these ideas are things to do with kids near you and do not need to drive places. BONUS no getting them in and out of car seats a bunch of times. Let's dive in and make sure to pin some of these for later.

Activities for Toddlers
2) Cotton Ball Painting
NO more icky fingers. Add paint to a pan or tray and use cotton balls with close pins and have the kiddos paint away. So easy and fun. See the post here.
3) Pasta Play
This is pretty genius in my opinion and I have everything on hand. Easy as putting the pasta on the straws. I see my children being entertained for quite a while doing this one Check it out here.
4) Fruit Loop Colors
Another super easy one all you need is Fruit Loops paper and markers. Color circles and have the kids put the correct color cereal in the corresponding circles.
5) Walk the Dog
A fun interactive game. All you do is print the game and pieces out and follow the directions! Head over here to get the printables.
6) Zoo Keeper Game
Print out the pieces like above in the pitcture and have the kids feed all the animals. Check them off as you go! Find the printables here.
Timeless Kids Activities
I will share some of my work from secrets with you that allow me to get some work done. Some of them may be controversial because some parents do not allow screen time. No offense to you but skip the rest of the blog post if that's you.
My mumber one thing that saves me when I need to get a project done is the girl's tablets. Bedise at home we use them in the car all of the time. Since we live outside of town most of our car ttrips are atleast 30 minutes each way. These hve saved my butt so many times.
Next up is Netflix. There are some really good educational shows and some movies that keep the girl's attention for a long time! Some of their favorites are Sahara, Boss Baby, and the Pets movie.
We currently do not have cable or dish right now because when we moved we realized we didn't really need it and only use the Amazon Fire Stick. Once you buy it, it is free after that. Saves us over $150 a month. YES!
Hope my list gives you some fun ideas and activities o do with your kids. Working from home with kids is hard but totally doable. Let me know what your go-to projects or games for at home are below in the comments.
