While it's true that summer is pretty much over and kids are returning to school, there are still warm days ahead and kids enjoy playing outside for as long as they can. Come to think of it, most parents also enjoy having their kids play outside as long as they can. Soon enough it will be cold and the "I don’t have anything to do" cries will be in full voice.

If children have to be inside for whatever reason, their natural reactions tend to become restless and that often leads to boredom, or at least what they consider boring. Of course it is not always possible to please and entertain every child, every time, but there are things that you can do to make it a little more bearable for everyone. Many times having a schedule helps, not a rigid everyone must follow it exactly schedule, just enough of one to try to keep things on an even keel, which is especially useful if there are a limited number of toys or activities. For example, if there are 2 easels available to use with painting and you have 4 kids that want to paint, then obviously there needs to be some type of time limit so that everyone gets a chance to paint.

On the other hand, some toys are even better if lots of kids can do it at once. An example of this would be blocks, you remember, those great wooden blocks of all different shapes and sizes that would keep you entertained for hours, building and re-building with your friends. Guidecraft makes some of the best blocks, with smooth edges and a wide assortment of both different styles and number that comes in a set. You can get anywhere from a 45 set piece all they way up to an amazing 390 piece set.

So, haul out the blocks and let the construction begin!
