Jo Frost's Rainy Day Tips for Your Kids
Jo Frost joins the "Tip-Off" with ideas to keep your kids sunny when they're stuck inside on a rainy day.
For the little ones:
• Create a treasure hunt for them with prizes as the end goal. Jo says, "This allows you to be free and easy with your kids; you can write down clues, they can start thinking it out and working as a team."
• Let them build a fort using items from around the house, like towels, tablecloths or seat cushions. "You have to recognize that you cannot keep [your house like] a museum or a palace when the kids are at home," Jo says. "Give them the space to let off the steam, otherwise they create problems and get pent up and they start to argue with one another and then you're dealing as a referee."
For the older kids:
Open the kitchen and have your kids create a theme night for lunch or dinner, and even make the menus. "As a nanny, this is what I used to do with the kids I looked after," Jo recalls. "I'd say, 'There's the pantry, let's do it!'"
For all ages:
Have an entire Caribbean day! "Put that music on that you may have gotten in the Bahamas and get the beach ball out," Jo says. "I used to literally put a bit of suntan cream on the kids and hang out the towels." You can include tropical juice drinks, fruit skewers and even a bit of limbo dancing!
