Keeping Paxlet entertained

Paxlet is on holiday (from daycare). A fact that he tells anyone who will listen to him. He is also on strike from naps most days. He’d tell you he did sleep at nap time though. When I In fact he’s only had two naps in almost two weeks. It’s rough, because he is tired, but just won’t let himself mellow out long enough to doze off. Instead, I’ve been trying to find activities, quiet and action packed, to keep him entertained and occupied.

So far, we’ve played with homemade play dough, played outside in the yard and nearby surrounding areas, gone to a mom and child group a couple of times, taken a boat trip to an island for a windy and cold day, watched the construction work across the street, went to an amusement park, rode the bus just for fun, went to a jungle gym,  gone to some new parks, went to a birthday party, explored a (junk) store that he’s never been to, read books, visited the cousins, watched a tiny bit of youtube videos and played with rain water and from the hose.

We still have more parks to explore, arts and crafts to do, sidewalk chalk to draw with, friends and cousins to visit (again), animals to check out at a local-ish farm, more youtube to watch, and whatever else we can come up with to keep busy. Some of the things that we’ve already done will be done again.

One thought on “Keeping Paxlet entertained

  1. It all sounds delightful …just as summer SHOULD be! 🙂 (I love, by the way, that you have, or had, a thing for frogs. Whoever left us ours must have, too.)
