Surviving Rainy Days with Little Kids
My kids are total Florida boys and love anything water related. Underwater animals & sea creatures are a huge hit with us, so these stimulating baby toys are just perfect! The Little Tikes Shake ‘n Rattle Crabbie Ring and Hide ‘n Seek Hermie have really brought my boys together and it’s been such a joy watching them play together with these while we are homebound. My guys are so close in age, yet up until this point they didn’t have much to relate to each other about because of their stages of life. Over the last week or so, I’ve noticed that they really are beginning to play with toys together and it’s just the sweetest thing ever!
I love how these soothing baby toys are helping Landon achieve developmental milestones and Ryland is able to take part in helping me play and educate his little brother. I knew having siblings was going to be fun but it’s proving to be even more fun than I imagined. The Shake ‘n Rattle Crabbie Ring makes lots of noise and it’s easy for Landon to grip so he’s been carrying it around, shaking it, and watching the claws open and shut – I thought that was a super cute detail.
The Hide ‘n Seek Hermie is an awesome way to get babies understanding cause and effect. Landon has started pulling on the ring which causes it to vibrate and make noise, and it makes him giggle like no other. Watching him learn that he’s the one making that happen is an amazing thing. Ryland has been so proud of little Landon playing with his toys all on his own.
Here’s a few of the ways that we are staying entertained during these rainy days:
Bring out NEW toys or toys that your children forgot about, that way it’s something that may keep them entertained a little bit longer!
Teach them about the weather – we have been talking about the rain, taking baths, and pretend playing that we are outside playing in it as well!
Make it a relaxing day – try movies, board games, snacks. Since it is likely dark and gloomy out, that snuggly feeling can take over – take advantage of it!
If you have a newborn or little ones at home, I highly suggest the Little Tikes Shake ‘n Rattle Crabbie Ring & Hide ‘n Seek Hermie toys! You can never go wring with quality toys that encourage eductaional play between your kiddos! They even have another in the collection, the Little Tikes Soothe ‘n Spin Octopus. How cute is that!?
