(Quiet) games for 3 to 5 year olds

October 18, 2016

Cold season is fast approaching and I know there will be more than one occasion that we (parents) have to entertain! Our kids. 

This year, after our recent hospital experience when my son was admitted and not allowed to leave his room for almost a week, I think I’m a bit more prepared ;) and I thought maybe I can share some of our favorite quiet games and toys with you.

*If you want to know what happened to my son, read about it here.

In this post I am going to stick to Puzzles only because you can do so much with them:

  • Not only solve them but you can use them instead of plush toys and do a little pretend play: take those farm animals to the stable, dinosaurs for a battle, give them some food, make them jump in muddy puddle then wash them, turn the lights off so they sleep when they don’t want to!, or keep them awake when they are too tired!
  • Try using the puzzles pieces as puppets : come up with a story and then put a puppet show. Or you move the pieces to tell your story to your child, or he can be the one who acts and you tell the story (or reverse!).
  • Teach them something new about the animals/objects;
