I'm watching a 4yr old boy for two weeks....9 1/2hr days. What are some creative ideas of what to do with him?

He's not allowed to watch Tv or be online and also doesn't take a nap. We've played make-believe camping, dr.-vet,the playground, jumping off of a rockwall into sand into a big circle i drew. rough housed etc..any other ideas?

Hi!! Here is one of my previous responses from another question that is very similar to yours.

It's always fun to incorporate games that will increase a child's cognitive skills. :)

I love to play 'memory.' If you don't want to buy the game, you can easily print out pictures of different items from different categories (like food, transportation, household items, clothing, animals, etc).

You can help increase his vocab and still have fun.

You can also increase it's difficulty by using pictures in pairs based on function or relationship (such as: seashell/beach; bone/dog; nest/bird etc).

You can also play the 'poor' version of a fishing game. Have the child sit with you and color drawn fish (he can also attempt to draw them!). Add numbers, symbols, whatever!! to each fish. Then you can cut them together.

Attach a paper clip to each 'fish' and, if you can, get a small magnet. I use the cheap loose magnets you can buy anywhere, and tie a string.

Then, fish away!!! You guys can make your own rules, which also makes the game a little more interesting. :)
