Hello to all. I am a single mother to a sweet and smart 4 yr old girl. Need ideas.

My daughter gets very bored easily, and I feel she needs something more challenging and fun to keep her occupied. Anyone has any ideas for arts and craft ideas? Thank you!!

    My 4yo gets bored really easily with stuff that isn't super imaginative. For example, he'd rather have a pile of construction paper, beads, pipe cleaners, etc than a coloring or activity book. Maybe your daughter is the same way and would respond to more open-ended kinds of activities? Stuff my 4yo really likes to do lately: - Play with a bin of LEGOs or MagnaTiles and build random things - Play dollhouse with stuffies or toy figurines, making them "talk" to each other etc - Arts and crafts but with random materials he can choose from (I have a bin of odds and ends and scrap paper) - Do gross motor stuff like ride scooters, dancing, jumping on the couch (favorite activity) - Pretend play like "the floor is lava" or setting up a "store" - Board games and card games for kids - Helping me cook and clean

    I am also a single mother to 3 year old. Beading necklaces can be fun and supports fine motor skills, baking cupcakes with her helping mix ingredients and decorate, dot art, painting, getting Barbies dressed, built blanket forts with her under kitchen table while u cool with her baby dolls tea party, balance bike/scooter outside, wash her ride toys day...soapy fun mess with sprinkler.

    Thank you, ladies!!! This will certainly help my daughter to be less bored. She is four years old and I feel she is in need of something that will help her keep occupied and spark creativity and knowledge so that I can get some quiet time and get things done around the house, and these activities would be awesome for us to do together as well. Blessings and have a great week!!! 💜🙏🏼
