A few weeks ago my boys took to the backyard with a ball of red wool. I can't say this was my genius idea of creativity - but try it out. They were quiet for a couple of hours and went back to play frequently over the next week until I cut, pulled and ripped the yarn away. Master J called it his laser beam yard!
Okay - here is the method:
- Give child a ball of yarn
- Allow them to wrap it around anything in your yard uninhibited for as long as they want to
- Don't mind the 'untidy' look
- Enjoy the solitude while they are happily playing
