The rainy season has hit South Florida and I like to be prepared. The last thing I need is to be cooped up in the house with three bored kids. My trick for saving my sanity is that I keep a box of toys in my closet with toys that I buy when I am at the store alone. I only bring these toys out when the kids are super bored and are tired of playing with all the toys that are already laying around the house. This past weekend came with lots of rain so we spent lots of time indoors. Being indoors with two boys, ages 7 and 8, is not for the faint of heart. I asked them to watch a movie while I did some cleaning. To nobody's surprise, they watched Disney Pixar Cars. They know this movie by heart. It is definitely one of their favorites!
See them watching the movie reminded me that I had recently gone to Toys "R" Us and bought some new Cars toys for them. I quickly went into my magic box in my closet and pulled out two Die Cast cars (exclusive Green Ramone and Hudson Hornet) and a Radiator Springs Story set for them to play with!
As I started building Luigi's Loop for them to play with, JC grabbed a foam board and drew a track for the new cars!
As the boys finished watching the movie, I was looking through the App Store on my phone and saw that there was a Cars app: Disney Pixar Cars Daredevil Garage!
Downloading the Daredevil app is super easy. Go to the App store on your phone. The Daredevil App is currently compatible with iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch. This app is optimized for iPhone 5, iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.
In the search box, type in Cars Daredevil Garage and press the Get button.
Allow the app to download.
As soon as the movie was over, I handed the boys my phone and they started playing immediately.
I let them play on the app for a while until Adrian drifted toward his new toy setup!
Adrian loves cars and race tracks. He has loved them since he was a toddler. He spent hours playing with his new toys and I had a couple hours of peace!!
The exclusive die-cast vehicles and Story sets are available at Toys "R" Us.
Do your kids love the Disney Pixar Cars movies? Do they collect the die-cast vehicles? What is your special trick for keeping kids entertained while playing indoors?
