Waiting Games –to keep your children occupied

These games are suitable for times when you have to wait, especially in a restaurant.

1. Finger Game:  Suitable for toddlers and pre-schoolers who are still developing fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination, this game can be played anywhere, whether in the queue to get into the restaurant or when drooling over the dishes on the next table.

Activity: Dad holds out two hands allowing thumbs and fingers to touch lightly. Use thumbs and finger to create various configurations. Child watches and mimics how Dad’s thumbs and fingers are placed. Begin with simple configurations and move to more complex ones. For example, allow tips of thumbs to meet. Next allow tips of index fingers and thumbs to meet to form a triangle.

Play until the food you ordered is served, or until your child starts sucking his thumb.
