Ideas for kids that are free and don't need supervision?

I have play-doh but I am trying to clean and they get it everywhere! Toys they refuse to putaway and TV I just want to shoot! I wish I could just ground them for ever! LOL. Sorry just looking I guess.

  • If they refuse to put their toys away then they won't play with anything until the ones they got out are put away.. I think a good timeout is in order if they don't want to do what they're told..
    I suggest turning off the TV, give them each an age appropriate job to do, and start making them listen and respect your authority.

  • Playdough would get thrown away if they did not play with it properly. all toys that they did not put up with in a certain time would be put up or thown away.
