I am going to try something new. I always get asked how do you do it? How do you run a house and family with four young daughters? What are your tricks and tips? Tuesdays, I am going to share tips that get us through our days, weeks, months all while staying somewhat sane.
Tonight’s tip is short and sweet. The preparation is easy and fun to do. I typically bring this to restaurants with us, but this is also a great quiet activity for those that need a few moments of peace at home.
One of my all time favorite tricks for entertaining kids at restaurants:
Mini Marshmallows and Toothpicks
My girls love when I pull out mini marshmallows and toothpicks. It is a great way to keep them entertained. They love to build things with the marshmallows and of course eating them too.
I always make sure to have marshmallows and toothpicks in my bag of tricks. Another thing I always do is make sure everything in my bag is up to date. Meaning new coloring and activity books, fresh crayons and markers, etc.
