I took them to the library for the summer reading program activity and the Littles were up to no good. When we got home, they all four turned on each other. So, Mommy/Auntie Jennifer handed down the ultimate punishment, I took away ALL electronics! No TV, movies, iPad, DS, Innotab, Vreader, or my phone. You'd have thought I took away their thumbs. They were utterly bewildered. (Honestly I'm not sure who felt the punishment more, me or the kids!)
I sat them on the couch and gave them a list of options. They looked at me like I was crazy when I suggested they play with the hundreds of toys we've spent thousands of dollars for them to have. Ultimately they ended up playing outside, doing crafts, playing board games, and having a dance party! When I suggested we have this kind of play day at least once a week they all got upset and thought they were in trouble! I still think it's a great idea!
