Our favorite animated babysitter, Auntie Edna, is back in action! This month, we’re pairing up with Disney/Pixar to celebrate the Digital and Blu-ray release of Incredibles 2, and the all-new “Auntie Edna” short. Our sitters might not have laser vision or the power of invisibility, but they do have one of the most important superpowers of all — keeping kids safe and happy! Here are a few tips to up your babysitting game from great to #incredible.
1. Balance is the key to any babysitting gig.
The key to a long day of babysitting is balance. Let out some energy with a dance party or a speedy game of tag, get out of the house with a trip to the park or the library, and weave in some down time by reading a book or taking a nap. Planning a variety of activities will make you look like a hero, and will keep the kids entertained!
2. Stack some play in the day.
No parent wants their kids sitting in front of the TV all day (unless you’re watching The Incredibles 2, of course). Both you and the kids will have more fun if you plan some fun games or entertainment throughout the day. If you nanny regularly, spend some time at the beginning of the week mapping out a schedule of activities. You’ll never hear “I’m bored” again! Need a little help brainstorming? Check out these tips for keeping the kids busy.
3. Never miss a naptime.
We all know what happens when baby doesn’t get enough sleep. It’s just not pretty. Make sure the kids don’t turn into a villain by keeping them on a regular nap schedule each day. Getting some sleep throughout the day will make the waking hours more fun (and will give you a little down time to recover from a long day of activities!)
Incredibles 2 is available now on Digital, Movies Anywhere, 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray and DVD.
