Please suggest me some creative activties and learning toys for my 1. 11 years old daughter. She is very active and she gets bored of doing / playing same activity. She has few wooden games, different types of blocks, books, board books, light and sound toys, colors & drawing books and many more. I have spent an hour to find one wooden game and one train blocks last sunday and she is bored of them in just 2 days :-(. I really have hard time to find something new for her in the market. Please suggest some creative or new ideas as I feel that children are very inquisitive at this age, so being a mother, I have to make sure that I should provide everything to her (ofcourse time as well :-)). Thanks in advance for your valuable suggestions.

Taruna Khanijow, get her crayons. there are big, fat ones that come for small children as they can hold them better. make a fruit, balloon, or something on a paper or take print outs, and give it to her to colour. Also, get some baby scissors, some coloured paper, a glue stick, and sit and make a craft item with her.. for example you can cut a kite out of white paper, and then she can decorate it and then put it up on the wall. small ideas but she will love them.

HI Taruna Khanijow, very good tips from everyone... even with my children, i figured they got bored of toys soon. they preferred to hang around me when i was doing chores at home and that i made into playtime. For eg: if i was hanging out clothes to dry, i used to ask my daughter to give me the red clothes pin or give me 5 clothes pin.. this became a play for her and she learnt as well. In the kitchen, i would open the fridge and ask her get me an orange or three tomatoes and she loved being my little soldier, feeling important helping me out. This became fun. she loved playing with atta dough and rolling out chapattis which then i cooked and gave to our dog. with such things, i got to finish my house chores also, she learnt too, and we spent time together also.

Hi Taruna Khanijow, Manas's suggestion is brilliant... in fact there are so many skill-building playful activities you can do at home with your child. 1) mix rajma, chana, and few other large sized beans in a bowl and ask her to separate them; water plants with you; arrange small plastic/steel bowls to make a tower of sorts, put some different size and material (steel, brass, copper etc) bowl and give her a spatula and let her have fun drumming them; browse through old magazines with her pointing out different photographs; sing rhymes to her teaching her actions to the rhymes; take her outdoors with you and point to little things such as ants, a butterfly, a web; stop to smell a flower... all this will help build wonder in her and teach her to appreciate the better things in life. Also, a love for outdoors will help her immensely in future too.

Taruna Khanijow, sometimes simple things at home are also playful for children. Give her different sized bowls from the kitchen and tell her to nest them (put one inside the other) or make a tower of them. All the noise and the new activity will delight her but not be an expense on you.
