When we become a parent, we want to spend as much time with our children as possible. We want their younger years to be filled with joy, happiness and fun, and as a result of this we try our best to keep them entertained and content through a range of different activities. As they get older, their needs will change which will mean we will not necessarily have to take as much time to think about what we should do with them, and where we should take them for fun days out. When a child is young, they can be content by simply playing with their toys, reading books, colouring or painting. But, as their age progresses they will be happy in their room, playing games, using the internet or catching up with school work.
