Music to Their Ears
When the kids I babysit get bored, we play 'Hide the Music.' To play, I ask the children to close their eyes while I hide their musical toys, and then I turn them on. After the kids open their eyes, they'll start to look for the toys. Even I have fun watching them play this game!
Toy Memory Game
