Great Tips on How to Entertain your Child


Has your child ever experienced playing on a bouncy castle? This is definitely something he will enjoy doing and it will also teach him new skills. Children love to play, but sometimes it can be hard to think of new ways to keep them entertained. If your child is bored or is just not interested in an activity, he probably won’t enjoy playing.

The first thing you need to know when thinking of ways to entertain your child is his interests. If your child loves sports, then play sports with him. A child who likes sports is probably also interested in lots of other things as well. Ask your child about his interests and join him. There are some sports your child can play alone, but he’ll have more fun if you join him.

Another thing to consider when you are thinking about how to entertain your child is what kind of effect the activity has. Below are some activities you can do with your child which have a good overall effect on his growth and development.


Tell a Story

Reading stories helps your child learn as well as keeps him entertained. Ask your child about the kinds of books or stories he wants to read or hear. Most kids love to hear funny or fantasy stories and some kids who want to test their courage choose horror novels. When you read books to a small child, make sure to keep it fairly short; if you read a long story to your child, he may get bored or fall asleep. You might also want to give your child something to eat while you’re reading. When you finish reading, talk about the book and ask your child what lessons he learned.

Jokes or Riddles

With this idea, your child’s critical thinking skills will be improved and it can also help put your child in a good mood. Laughing makes everyone feel better!  When it comes to riddles, make sure you think of ones that are easy for your child to solve. If your child has already answered lots of your riddles, it’s time for you to think of more difficult ones to challenge his critical thinking ability. Your child won’t learn if you consistently ask riddles he has answered before.

Go Somewhere

Children enjoy going out to have fun. They sometimes get bored by the things you do inside the house. Go to a park with your child to breathe some fresh air and make friends with other kids. You can also talk to other parents to get their ideas on entertaining children. Another great idea is to let your children play on a bouncy castle. Your child will improve his physical strength by running and jumping on it. You can also hire a bouncy castle for your child’s birthday.

Play Board Games

Board games can help your child learn about forming a strategy. Remember that most board games need two or more people to play. One good example of a board game is chess. You need to think before you make a move in this game, and if you make a wrong move, you will sometimes lose. Playing board games teaches your child how to make good decisions.

Play sports

You can play sports with your child. If your child loves playing basketball, you can join him. Your child may not enjoy dribbling and shooting on his own. In sports, your child can improve his coordination and also his physical health. He will lose fat and improve his stamina. When you and your child play sports together, make sure that you have a first aid kit in case accidents occur, and make sure to have plenty of water to stay hydrated.


You can also treat your child some great food. Go to a restaurant or drive through and treat your child to his favorite food, or go to the mall or the arcade to play.

Before you play, make sure your child has done his studying and homework. Some toys and entertainment can become addicting or cause your child to lose interest in school, so think carefully about what toys and types of entertainment you choose.
