You know what kids really love? When you tell them not to do something and they DO IT ANYWAY. (Exhibit A: Every child every day of their entire life).โ €
โ €
So, today's Super-Easy Fun is tell your kids not to laugh. Wha?! But, that's so silly! Exactly. โ €
โ €
I like to make it really dramatic like, "Okay, you guys, whatever you do, please, please, please, don't laugh, even once, even the teeniest bit, k?" And then, of course, they start rolling.โ €
โ €
This also works for telling them not to have fun, not to try a new food, or definitely do not give your mommy a kiss! (I use it sometimes at preschool drop off when Bennett's nervous and it's amazing how quickly he'll be giggling, telling me he IS going to have fun.)โ €
โ €
You should definitely try it. Or... definitely don't try it, okay? I mean don't even test it out today on your kids because it's a TERRIBLE IDEA and if you do it, NO ONE WILL HAVE A GOOD TIME. WHATEVER YOU DO, DON'T TEST OUT THIS SUPER-EASY FUN. (See, totally works. And I should win an award for hilarity. ๐Ÿ˜‚)โ €

    Our pediatrician does this for check ups and I always really loved the idea. I try to do it when we get dresses for uniform days!

    That's so so fun!!! Love it! When I used to teach sport, I used to play this game where they had to organise themselves in a certain way without talking. Then came the questions...'can we sneeze?' (Everyone sneezes), 'can we cough?' (Everyone coughs), 'can we breathe?' (Everyone breathes loudly). My answers, no, no and no. They found it hilarious and couldn't not do those things!!
