I find great fun in entertaing kids. There are many ways to keep kids busy while having fun. Growing up I had many siblings so we had a built in system. We did not have computers so we did things the old fashion way. We were active playing games that required being physical. Walking, running, playing games like tag, pitch and catch were always fun.
Being active has many benefits above just sitting on the couch. I like to incorporate being active in my parties. We get kids to chase bubbles and to be interactive with balloons. While the kids are moving the get the benefit of better health through exercise. Having an interactive party promotes fun and health.
