The great advantage of having fun is that it can happen anywhere and at anytime. It’s easy to have fun at an amusement park or a sporting event. Birthday parties and field trips are designed to be enjoyable for children. But what happens when there is nothing readily available when your preschooler utters those infamous words “I’m bored”?

Totally eliminating the words “I’m bored” might be a task that’s difficult to accomplish. But
there are simple ways to manage the boredom and have fun with your preschooler, even when there appears to be nothing interesting to do.

Take a look at these simple ways to laugh and have more fun with your preschooler.

• Simplify the conversation. Instead of talking about eating vegetables or behavior
problems, have a fun conversation about subjects like toys, or movies and super heroes.
• Play some upbeat music and dance or sing a song together.
• Look for items in the kitchen and use them as musical instruments. Then play your own
music together.
• Have a movie night at home. Place blankets on the floor with snacks, flashlights, and
your child’s favorite movie.
• Have a sleep over. Invite your child’s best friend over for the night.
• Let your child style your hair.
• Give each other manicures and pedicures.
• Play a board game and make up your own rules.

There are countless ways to have fun when you are willing to laugh and play with your child. Even after a long day at work, laughter can be a welcome relief for you and your child. The benefits of laughter go much further than entertaining your child. There are emotional and physical benefits for adults as well.
