There is nothing worse and more guilt-inducing than when your child asks you to play with them but you are just simply too tired.
Most of the following can be played lying down, while you’re in bed or, in the case of Hide And Seek, if you find a really good spot you’ll get a few minutes of alone time to enjoy and embrace.
Snap –The card game is easy to explain and easy to get through. No thinking involved and if you really want it to end quickly you can just let the kids win.
Connect Four – You don’t even need to move off the couch to enjoy this one. And if you’re feeling really lazy you can play it in bed with a book or something hard underneath to balance it out.
What’s On My Back? –Basically your kids roll various different things on your back and you have to guess what it is. Just stay away from food items and anything wet otherwise you’ll have to clean it up, and that's the last thing you want.
Hide And Seek –Just make sure you find a really good spot so that you can enjoy ten minutes of peace.
