Keeping your kids busy for hours is something that eludes many parents.  Finding time as a new parent can be difficult – especially because children can be so demanding.  Toddler and kids need environmental stimulation to help them develop their motor skills and their mental capacity.  If not, there are likely to fall into boredom.  Fear not, parents in PJ – we came up with a list of activities which can keep your kids busy for hours…that way you can get a little “me” time in.


7 Activities to Keep Your Kids Busy for Hours


Make a Game Box

Game boxes are fun!  You can put legos, coloring books, and other fun activities inside a game box which can keep your kiddo playing by themselves for a while.  Make it even more special by only taking it out when you really need to take a breather!


Have Them Make Their Own Superhero

Give them some paper and crayons/colored pencils and tell them to draw their own unique superhero and villain.  Then, have them tell you the story about each character.  This is a great way to stimulate their little minds.


Play Outdoors

Hand your kiddos a stick and ball and let them run around like you used to when you were younger.  I know it is the technological age, but letting them run loose outside can do a world of good for them.


Host Play Dates

Finding a peer your kiddo can play with isn’t difficult.  A bonus would be you can get in a little more “me” time while they are off playing with their friends.  Keep in mind, you’ll probably have to return the favor sometimes, but it is worth it!


Build a Fort

Give your kiddo a blanket, some chairs and pillows and tell them to make a fort.  BONUS:  if they make it themselves they will probably want to stay in there longer.


Make Sculptures

Hand your kiddos some pipe cleaners, Styrofoam, markers and other odds and ends so they can make their own sculptures.  Be it animals, people or buildings, your kiddo will have a fun time creating their own little world!


Give Them Tools to Play With

I know this may sound precarious, but we aren’t talking about power tools.  Giving your child tools such as a flashlight, or keys and locks, or wrenches can help them develop their motor skills.  For an added bonus, ask them to figure out how each tool works.  Another tip we discovered had to do with a parent putting a bunch of keys and locks in a bag and having their child figure out which key goes to which lock.  The possibilities are endless!



About Little Human Scholars Full & Half Day Daycare in PJ

Little Human Scholars is an all-in-one childcare solution.  It is a preschool, playschool, kindergarten, nursery and full-day daycare centre (with extended hours) located in the heart of PJ.


In fact, the location is one of the things which makes Little Human Scholars so sought after – it is conveniently nestled near Jalan Gasing, University hospital, PJ Old town, PJ New town, Jaya One, Jaya33, and the PJ IT Mall.


The best part is LHS has premiere services many other schools in PJ don’t offer such as full-day daycare with extended hours, CCTV access for parents, and a nifty little phone app called Toddlytic which provides parents with automatic updates on their child’s development, behaviour and health checks.


With full-time guards always present at each of their locations, access to CCTV (which is in every room except the office, bathroom and kitchen areas), and very strict pick-up and drop-off rules, Little Human Scholars treats every child who walks into its hallways as one of their own children!


This place has it all:  location, safety, health, IGSCE curriculum and play-based learning.  What more could you ask for?  Did I mention they also have transportation services and offer meal plans for students?  It doesn’t get any better than that.


If you are interested in a tour of one of our centres (that’s right, there’s more than one), all you need to do is fill out the form here or call +6017-7303-025 and an LHS administrative staff will get back with you shortly!
