I've a lad who is quite content to just play or sit quietly in the house, but once I get him going he usually enjoys himself.
Today I got to thinking...it's cold outside and the weather rather inclement do I really want to go for a walk? NO. What can I do to get a boy busy physically? I wanted to do some sight words with him so I decided to use them to get him busy.
I laid 16 of them out on dad's exercise mats and then said Pounce or Jump or Run and Grab the words as I say them. Turn them upside down so when you are done you can test Mom. (he thought that a cool idea).
Later we got him out to do some tobogganing.
