Hiya! Stacey here, most of you know who i am but if you don’t im Si’s wife. Due to the covid-19 lockdown i figured i could be of help to some of you mum’s and dads staying at home with your kiddies.
Im not an expert, and i get a lot of ideas from my fellow triplet mamas, occasionally i come up with a good idea myself. But i feel ive become pretty good at entertaining 2 year old triplets. Before covid-19 came along this is what we did. Stayed at home. ALL DAY! My triplet mums will know what i mean. SAHM for life.
So we’ve been self isolating since tuesday, i needed to come up with a schedule for my 12 year old singleton to follow to make sure she doesnt fall behind on school work. We all sat down tuesday night and came up with it. We needed it to focus on school work, but also make sure she stays conected to her friends and gets exercise. This is what we came up with. Seems to be working pretty well so far. I mean it is only day 2!
For the triplets, we played some indoor bowling, I have a set that we used but you can use empty bottles and a ball. They loved this!
We also painted their hands using wasable poster paint and printed them onto canvas that i’ve had hanging around for ages now. But you can do it on paper or empty cardboard boxes. These im gonna hang up in their room.
I needed to tidy up before lunch so i gave blakely a toy hoover and ava and lacey a duster each, thety love helping mummy.
Lastly, I used an empty box i got from gousto today; i did wanna say actually thats been another life saver during this time. Gousto is a weekly subscription meal kit, which includes ready measured, fresh ingrediants and easy to follow recipes. Love it! And i used the empty box to draws round the girls bodies and then they coloured them in.
These are just a few ideas, they work with my trio so im confident theyll work for you whether you have 1, 2, 3 or more kids.
Stay safe, lots of love.
