Entertaining Your 4 Year Old
A four year old is so fun! They have incredible imaginations and can go ALL day! Trying to keep them into something constructive and not destructive can be a challenge. However, its not impossible to have your little one busy with activities that keep them captivated, and learning throughout the day.

Keeping The Mind Sharp
At the age of four it can be so important to keep the little tykes mind learning! My four year old son is learning how to trace his letters and I love doing it on these awesome Drawing boards!
My kids use the drawing boards daily and I love that we own a couple of them:) I try to make an effort to have my son draw letters and numbers for about 15 minutes a day. ( Not all days because sometimes I can be lazy, Ha.) If he isn’t doing letters he draws so many things I would never imagine.
Outdoors is best!
Outdoor activities are the best! It can be such a challenge to pry my 4 year old off an electronic. When this is the case I know we haven’t had enough outdoor fun. So I am going to try and take advantage of this crazy warm weather and try a few of these exciting activities.
Did you know you can make GIANT Bubbles? My kids did these for hours and loved them! And they still ask to do them.
This is something my kids and I love to do together. We will pick flowerbed that needs weeding and make it beautiful again! I often do the weeding so my kids don’t pull precious flowers but they love hauling the weeds away, trying to catch bugs, and digging in the dirt. If you are looking for something to get them motivated then get them a bug catcher or a shovel and rake. They will love it and use it so much more than once if you make an effort to explore with them.
Wet and Wild
What kid doesn’t love to play in the water? It is a favorite for my kids. Get the children outside and wet with these fun toys!
Reading is a favorite in my house. And we have made it extra fun after we purchased one of these blow up tents! I gather tons of books and pillows and blankets and put this tent up. This keeps the kids good and busy for a while. And its so incredible that it takes up little to no room in my space.
Sanity for Mom
This one is for you mom. You know the days when you are exhausted and need to get so much done in very little time. I bought one of these amazing child tablets and it comes with so many apps and books to keep the young ones entertained, and learning! This one is for them to keep busy for you to get stuff done. They can be addicting though, so after my kids use up the battery I put it away for a couple days at a time so they aren’t constantly on screen time.
Try some of these and keep your little four year old motivated and enjoying childhood because it doesn’t last forever.
