As a working mom to a busy toddler, finding time to get my work completed and keep him on the go can be a juggling act. I like to start my day dressed in a casual outfit and especially my go-to casual sneakers like these from Famous Footwear because I never know what the day may bring. From neighborhood walks to exploring our local park or playing with street chalk, I have to be comfortable to keep up with him and still relaxed enough to answer a few emails. Times are definitely different right now and we’re all at home trying to come up with new ideas to keep the little ones entertained through the summer months so I’ve rounded up a few of my favorite things to do with my little one right from our home.
- Swim Day. This is his absolute favorite and I’m thankful we have access to a pool for him because he loves the water. Days when we aren’t going to the pool, I have a ton of water activities he can do right in our backyard.
- Street Chalk. I actually bought a chalk set that was only $10 and it had stencils and all types of art you can trace for a fun day of art activities.
- Gardening. This may sound like a ton of work but we turn it into a mini science project planting different fruits and vegetables so he can understand the process and fully participate in the activity. He loves to see how they grow day by day.
Staying home can get a bit tiresome but there are so many things you can do to keep your little ones entertained. When you’re shopping this season for new shoes, remember comfort is key when it comes to juggling the many daily aspects of a mom and I’m so happy Famous Footwear always has the best styles when I need comfort in my wardrobe.
