8 Overrated Toddler Activities

By Danielle |

Ready to have your fun ruined?

There are a lot of activities kids think are so much fun. And as parents, we never think about how horribly they just may end sometimes. We get ourselves into these nightmares thinking “Oh gosh gee golly this is going to be so much fun!” and end up leaving, thinking … I will NEVER do that again.

Unfortunately, there are many dreaded parenting activities we dive into without thinking twice. I’m here to warn you and save your future self from a day of misery.

Of course it is all in good fun. We should continue having fun with our kids and helping them explore in life. But what would parenthood be without some good sarcastic bitching about it … right?

    Every Saturday I try to do a craft with my 2.5 year old, and every Saturday I leave thinking, why do I try. But, for the first 5 mintues, he really enjoys it and therefore I keep it up.
