Get some fun into your every day routine with these sparky ideas to perk up the most mundane activities...
Bathtime fun: If bathtime ever begins to get tiresome, why not play hair dressers and use the suds from the baby shampoo to make fun hairstyles with your baby's hair! Show what they look like with a plastic mirror and see their reaction to looking like an alien!
Changing roles: why not encourage your little one to look after you for a while. Get them to cuddle you, wrap you in a blanket on a comfy chair, stroke your hand or forehead etc. Or, see if they will tuck you into bed for a pretend nap and sing you a bedtime song. They will love it!
Picture book: Look through old pictures and choose some to make a big family book full of family photos. You could add a collage and stick the pictures onto card and mount them with glue. Frame the collage and see how much fun you have naming all the relations and seeing how they are related to each other! You could set it out like a family tree!
Dinner time: Pretend you are in a restaurant and set out the table with a table cloth or a bunch of flowers. Pretend to take orders and bring in the food like a waitress. Don't forget the bill at the end!
