These days, grandparents are more active than ever before. When it comes to babysitting or taking your grandchild out for the day, there are literally hundreds of activities to choose from. You’re in a unique position to reinvent some of your own childhood games (which often seem new and cool to kids) and try your hand at some modern ones.
You survived the first year and it’s supposed to get easier, but for some reason, you’re still struggling with sleep. Sound familiar? Behind the myth of the supermom and the parents who seemingly don’t need sleep, there is the reality: that family life with a young toddler can be extremely exhausting.
For many of us, family life is a constant balancing act between work, household chores and spending time with family. There is simply too much to do and the idea of taking time out to play with your kids can sometimes feel like a luxury, let alone leaving enough time to relax! Here are 5 play activities that you should try at least once with your kids. Did we mention that they also have unexpected benefits for you? More on that later!
Getting your kids active can be a difficult task, especially when their rooms are filled with tons of cool electronics. Being active is not only good for their bodies in general, but being active as a family can create wonderful lifelong memories! No matter how you encourage your child to active, your child will surely enjoy the quality time you spend with them! It doesn't take much to get most children going, but we have a few game suggestions if you don't know where to start.
Scooters are booming in popularity and making the number one spot on wish lists for kids of all ages. Whether they’re learning the ropes or they’re a seasoned pro, scooters are a great way to minimise screen time, hang out as a family, liven up the school run and explore the neighbourhood at weekends.
Want your kids to literally beg you to let them try new foods? Want to cook one meal in the evening rather than always having a backup option? This might sound like a million miles away from the usual mealtime tantrums, but we have a few tricks to make your life easier.
We all know the kind of dad who turns up every Sunday come rain or shine to watch his kid’s game, determined to prepare them for a future career as a professional footballer or Olympic athlete. Yes there are some exceptionally talented children out there, but most of us ‘regular dads’ just want to see our kids enjoy sports and perform as well as they can.
Having fun on two wheels (or three) is a big deal for kids, whether they’re a first time rider or a natural pro. Scooters are a great way for them to build confidence. Choosing a scooter that suits your child’s age and experience can set them up for a lifetime of healthy activity. It also allows them to experience a sense of freedom without the steep learning curve of pedal bikes.
IMPORTANT: PLEASE READ BEFORE CHECKING OUT OUR NEW Y VELO BELOW.
The classic Y Velo range has been the gold standard of balance bikes since its conception in the early 2000s. Although it has stood the test of time and has firmly established itself as one of the pillars of our Yvolution lifestyle range, we believe it’s about time for us to break the status quo again.
