How to Keep Younger Siblings Busy at Sports Games is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Sprout® Organic Baby Foods. The opinions and text are all mine.
The day has finally come and it’s one Justin has been counting down to for the past few years. Weston is playing T-ball this year. That means we’ve added practices and games to our family calendar, something that is new for all of us. I’ll be in the stands ready to cheer on my little ball player but I’ll also be in charge of Carrigan. It’s all about how to keep younger siblings busy at sports games!
How to Keep Younger Siblings Busy at Sports Games
Now, I have to admit that I’m not super experience with ways to keep younger siblings busy at sports games and practices but I’ve got a game plan! Most of it comes down to being prepared so I’m on a mission to be more than prepared. Here’s what I’m taking in our gear to keep Carrigan busy this weekend!
We’re lucky that there is a playground at our ball fields so Carrigan can play as much as she wants. Of course that means someone has to be there supervising her! It also means she gets very dirty! So sometimes it’s not the best bet but we do depend on it!
While we have all of Weston’s gear to take with us to the ball fields, I’ve also got some sports gear for Carrigan. Of course, we have everything Weston needs to play in his bat backpack but in Carrigan’s backpack I have a toy ball for us to throw around and a little soccer ball to kick if there is an open field.
I’ve got a some brand new pads of paper, colored pencils, and even some ulta washable markers to keep in our backpack for T-ball days. I plan to change up the art supplies every so often and add things like stickers to the mix to keep it fresh!
Books & Toys
Toys like building blocks and little figures are perfect for throwing in the bag and keeping in Carrigan’s backpack. She loves to build and will play her her little doll figures for quiet awhile!
Books & Tech
Both kids are really into reading books on their own and with us right now. So I’m making sure that I have some of Carrigan’s favorites along with a new book or two so we can share a story for a distraction.
And yes, technology comes along with us. I’m not heading to the ball field without Carrigan’s tablet. It has some videos and learning games on it that I know she loves. So we will have it with us in case we need it. The option is letting her use my phone and I would rather her use the gadget that is set up for her!
Snacks & Drinks
One of the most important things I have to have with us is food. Carrigan is more of a nibbler these days so having easy snacks with us is going to be essential. Her sippy cup and small water bottles are also a must. I’m not sure what kind of concessions they have at the ball fields and I really don’t want her eating a bunch of it anyway. So I’m going to be depending on Sprout® Organic baby/toddler food over the next few months!
We’ve been using Sprout® Organic baby/toddler food for quite awhile even as Carrigan gets older because I am making small changes to eating better around our house. It’s all about balance. We’ve got a great variety from our Sprout® Organic Baby Food and Sprout® Organic Toddler Purees which travel well in the pouches. Perfect for an afternoon at the ball fields!
We recently added Sprout® Organic Toddler Snacks to our on the go snack preparation and they have worked well. So I’m hoping they will keep Carrigan satisfied and busy during her brother’s game! Plus, they are available at H-E-B where we shop regularly so that makes them even more convenient.
But what I really like about Sprout® Organic baby/toddler food is that they are USDA certified organic with BPA free packaging. They don’t use acid preservatives and they have no additives, fillers, or added flavors. Plus, the flavor names match the ingredient lists so you’re getting what you think you’re getting!
So hopefully this mom is ready for T-ball season and my plans to keep younger siblings busy at sports games work! I don’t know if the other moms will be as prepared but I’d rather have more than I need than not enough! I can always share, right?
