Entertaining kids can be hard. If you are not prepared it is one of those things that literally drains the life out of you. Some people can easily come up with activities on a whim to keep kids entertained. They are like those pied pipers that just have kids swooning and totally under control.
Then there are us normal parents. We are the parents that have kids running wild unless we have something to keep them under control. It takes effort and it certainly takes energy.
The pain is very real!
Fortunately there are solutions and those solutions are easy to prepare for.
Coloring pages are an awesome solution. They are portable, they are fun and there are so many different varieties that the kids can’t say they are bored too quickly.
If you think attention spans might be an issue you can easily introduce a coloring competition. That will make the kids take extra care of their coloring (and time).
