Lets face it. Kids are so busy all the time. I know with our 4 year old, it seems as if she never stops. She has so much energy all the time..sometimes its so hard for me to keep up with her. I wish I had that much energy still! A dear sister that I teach with in Primary watched E a few weeks back while we went to a D-Backs game for a date night. She sent me a text when we were on our way home saying that E was still up and wasn't tired at all (not a big surprise to me). She said that E had enough energy to light up an entire house! It's true. She really does. So how do you keep a busy energetic child occupied? I have found a lot of my games and activity ideas on Pinterestthis blog andthisblog . I find that some activities she loves and others that I think she will just love she does for a few minutes and then her interest is completely lost. Here are some of her favorite activities:
Squish hands into a giant tub of colored spaghetti to find the missing letters.
Sort colorful pom poms into the colored egg cartons.
