Even so, sometimes the best behaved kid has trouble with things like sitting still for hours or waiting patiently in line. So I've been falling back on some of my favorite games that we do at our shows to keep Rowan (and me) happy.
Earlier in the week, we went to the Monterey Bay Aquarium. The aquarium is always an amazing place, but the sea otter exhibit and incredible interactive jelly fish and sea horse exhibits were like nothing i've ever seen before. The excitement of the museums made the simple task of waiting for a table for lunch almost too much for a little kid. So we played Aquarium Freeze. After spending time seeing these animals in real life, it can be much easier and much more fun to come up with new ways to act like some incredible creatures. It's a game that doesn't take up much space, so you can play it even when you're in a crowded space. You just have your kid (or kids) dance around, then call out the name of an animal and they can 'freeze' like that animal. It's easy and fun for a variety of ages.
Have a lovely day!
