Activities that keep little ones stimulated and focused are a necessity, especially in the current climate where we are spending more time at home and indoors. As a parent we have all heard numerous times throughout the day “Can I play on the iPad for a little while”. An increasing body of evidence shows that offering screen time to kids too often is harmful for children both in the short and long term. This has left many parents looking for alternative ideas to keep their children entertained at home and off those pesky devices.
So, what do you do when you are a parent in need of a little bit of piece and quiet while also providing a productive activity for your child? The Busy Nippers Activity Packs can make the difference between an exhausting day or a day full of creativity, learning and fun! Originally sold to Australian businesses, Busy Nippers fun engaging activity packs are now available for purchase at home!

What Makes Our Activity Packs So Great
The Busy Nippers Activity Packs are not only great for occupying kids but also provide benefits such as:
- Ensuring screen-free activity time
Controlling a child’s screen time can be challenging. Until the age of 2, screen time is not recommended, and only one hour of quality programmes is suggested for kids between 2 to 5 years of age. Too much or poor quality screen time has been linked to obesity, irregular sleep schedules, loss of social skills, behavioural problems, violence, and a deficit of play. If you are looking to reduce your kid’s screen time you will need to replace it with an activity that is both educational and entertaining, such as the Busy Nippers Activity Packs.
- Aiding child’s development
Children learn through play and creative activities support your child’s intellectual and cognitive development. They come with benefits such as developing their imagination, improving concentration, encouraging critical thinking, and teaching problem-solving skills. Activities can also help kids manage their emotions, develop their fine motor skills, and improve your child’s well-being. When you also get involved with creative activities, you create a wonderful shared bonding experience and teach your child new skills without any pressure.
- Providing entertainment to children
Activity packs are great for not only entertaining kids at home but also when you are on road trips, holidays, visiting friends/family, for their overnight bag and any other situation when kids can get restless and need an interesting and engaging activity. As a parent you can take the opportunity to relax with a coffee or get some work done while the kids are enjoying Busy Nippers activity packs. You will undoubtedly love these packs for providing you with the quiet time you’ve been lacking!
- Learning through play
Play is an extremely successful method for teaching your child anything; multiple research studies have shown the importance of play in child development. Activities that are focused around play have numerous benefits such as stimulating early brain development, improving intelligence, encouraging creative thinking, improving communication and language skills, promoting impulse control and emotion regulation, developing problem solving skills, and strengthening relationships with caretakers and peers.
- Providing an entertaining activity during isolation
With an ongoing threat of lockdown, parents could be at home again with their children 24/7 and they are looking to be better prepared this time. Offering screen time to entertain kids is tempting, but everyone knows this is just a short-term solution that should not be used too frequently. Busy Nippers Activity Packs come to the rescue for families in isolation, providing engaging, entertaining and educational activities to keep their children occupied every day.
