We started my son on a Jr. basketball team. We thought he could use a positive way to release some of his ENERGY!! Plus, I think it does alot to help build his self confidence. He's a great kid and it was so fun to see him play.
Two of my other kids were getting bored of the game. They wanted to be in it, not watch it! I gave my daughter paper to draw on to keep herself busy (I think it's a picture of a bird?... muscle man?...no it couldn't be a muscle man.... hmmm.... a plane?... oh well it kept her busy anyway.) In the background you can see my son trying to entertain himself by rocking himself in his little sisters car seat... (the baby isn't in it of course) doesn't take much to entertain my kids!! gotta love them.
