|Fun with stickers in the|
2. Bubbles: Always a good time. Our favorite bubble solution is Gymboree. It makes 100 times more bubbles, and they last much longer too. But don't use it in your house as it will ruin your floor.
3. Balloons: M is a sucker for a balloon. For $.50 at the grocery store, or a party store, you can entertain your child for hours on end. We had one tied to M's wrist for an entire day last week, but sadly lost it to the high ceilings of Costco. Surprisingly she was not upset about the loss of said balloon as I explained to her that it actually lived at Costco and played with the giant stuffed bear at night. Thankfully she forgot that as soon as I told her and we haven't looked for the balloon during subsequent visits.
4. Notepad & Crayons: I now also keep a little flip notepad (like the ones reporters carry in old timey movies) and a couple of crayons in ziploc, in my diaper bag at all times. It also keeps M quiet during meals out and doctor's visits as she loves to draw, especially with a yellow crayon, as we are still obsessed with all things yellow!
What are your cheap entertainment ideas?
