In the backyard, you can place toy cars, dolls, balls and other toys that your kids love to play with
- If your kids are in the age group of 6 to 11 years, it might e a bit difficult for you to entertain them through these simple toys.

and crafts course for a fortnight or a month or labeling all his or her clothing with iron on clothing labels. While your child would learn how to make creative stuff, he would also get to meet and interact with new people.

Choose a destination that not only has places that interest you but your children as well. Otherwise, your children might end up getting bored while you enjoy shopping or other activities.
- Hit the beach with your kids and their friends. If you’re in a mood to relax, take your kids and their friends to the beach for a picnic. Instruct your children not to go further to avoid drowning or any injuries
