I found out that the #1 reason why kids misbehave when you are out & about is...BOREDOM! Makes sense, right? You're looking at clothes or shopping at Lowe's and it's just not that fun for them.
So, I am trying a new approach. Usually we don't allow our kids to take their toys when we go places. Those transformers are expensive! But now I have made a bag for each of them especially for when we are out in the community. They fit pretty well into my huge purse for such occasions.drawstring bag and filled them with things you already have. Everything is from Dollar Tree and includes...
$2 pencil cases x 2
$1 magnetic books (pkg of 2)
$1 mini wipe-off circus coloring books (pkg of 3)
$1 Lightening McQueen crayons (pkg of 3)
$1 cars (pkg of 6)
$1 books (pkg of 2)
$2 pez dispensers x 2
$1 super hero treats (bunch in a pkg)
= $10 for 2 bags! Plus extra treats, books, crayons, etc to refill!
What do you do to keep little ones well-behaved and entertained?
