It is so tough to find any time to spend on a hobby. There is a desire to be creative that is always pushed aside by the real needs of others. My husband and I both work. Fortunately I only work part time and earn a decent income. I spend the rest of my time doing my share of the household chores (all of us do our part) and taking care of the kids. My husband helps a lot with the kids too. For when I am home during the day, I bought a Kids Mini Trampoline so the kids have something to do inside that makes it easier for me to keep an eye on them yet let them burn off that boundless energy.
I got the kids mini trampoline for them some time back. I put it in the big room where we work on our hobbies. My husband paints when he has time. The kids seem to never tire of bouncing on the trampoline. There was a problem with taking turns so we got another trampoline. We had the space so it works out well for us. I bought a couple of gym floor mats to go underneath for the inevitable tumbles. We have them both in a place that is away from sharp corners and furniture. The rules are no shoes and no rough play. The first rule is much easier to enforce than the second one.
I must say that I cannot see the appeal of jumping up and down for an hour while I work on my quilting hobby but the kids really get into it.
