Ready for Some Inspiration? Read Play Time Quotes for Children

Teach your kids the best Quotes taken out of Favorite Children Books

Every child has his own way to connect to its inner self and outdoor playground equipment, storybooks and good company help children connect to their inner self. Children love quotes, especially the ones that come from their favorite story books. In this post, I have decided to collect one of the best inspirational quotes from famous children’s books.

The Lion and the Mouse

"No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted."


"It has been a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day. My mom says some days are like that."


"'Why did you do all this for me?' he asked. 'I don't deserve it. I've never done anything for you.'
'You have been my friend,' replied Charlotte. 'That in itself is a tremendous thing.'"


"One day I gave Clifford a bath. And I combed his hair and took him to the dog show. I'd like to say Clifford won first prize...but he didn't. I don't care. You can keep all your small dogs. You can keep all your black, white, brown, and spotted dogs. I'll keep Clifford...Wouldn't you?"


"'You must be a friend,' said Corduroy. 'I've always wanted a friend.'
'Me too,' said Lisa, and gave him a big hug."


"Frog said, 'I wrote 'Dear Toad, I am glad that you are my best friend. Your best friend, Frog.'

'Oh,' said Toad, 'that makes a very good letter.'
Then Frog and Toad went out onto the front porch to wait for the mail. They sat there, feeling happy together."


 "'I don't need very much now,' said the boy, 'just a quiet place to sit and rest. I am very tired.'

'Well,' said the tree, straightening herself up as much as she could, "well, an old stump is good for sitting and resting. Come, Boy, sit down. Sit down and rest.'
And the boy did. And the tree was happy."


"We be of one blood, ye and I."


"When they've finished reading, Olivia's mother gives her a kiss and says, 'You know, you really wear me out. But I love you anyway.'
And Olivia gives her a kiss back and says, 'I love you anyway too.'"


(Also known as Peter Pan or The Boy Who Wouldn't Grow Up.)

"You know that place between sleep and awake, the place where you can still remember dreaming? That's where I'll always love you. That's where I'll be waiting."


"The Rainbow Fish shared his scales left end right. And the more he gave away, the more delighted he became. When the water around him filled with glimmering scales, he at last felt at home among the other fish."


"And for all I know he is sitting there still, under his favorite cork tree, smelling the flowers just quietly. He is very happy."


"Mr. Duncan put the Maggie Pebble in an iron safe. Some day they may want to use it, but really, for now, what more could they wish for? They had all that they wanted."


"'Real isn't how you are made,' said the Skin Horse. 'It's a thing that happens to you. When a child loves you for a long, long time, not just to play with, but REALLY loves you, then you become Real.'"


"'But what I like doing best is Nothing," said Christopher Robin.

'How do you do Nothing?' asked Pooh, after he has wondered for a long time.
'Well, it's when people call out at you just as you're going off to do it, What are you going to do, Christopher Robin, and you say, Oh, nothing, and then you go and do it.'"

Can You Really Discipline Your Child Without Being the Bad Guy?

Parenting is a exigent job that chains out a never ending list of tasks that not only tire the parents, but also make them want to give up. But you can’t give up, can you? Of course not. You have got to keep doing it and doing it until the children are old enough to get a hold of themselves. But the big question is till they reach that established age, how do we discipline them without being the bad guy? Some will say use the positive and negative reinforcement, some will tell you how be a friend can help guide children onto the right path. However, there is no right answer to that question.
It is hard to say what works and what doesn’t work when it comes to parenting. However, there are a couple of things that you can do to make sure that the children don’t take the wrong influence of your parenting methods.

Pick a tender tone to disclose to your kids the outcomes of enjoying practices that are viewed as improper or out of the line. Whether its an outdoor playground equipment in a community park or a simple swing set in your backyard, a gentle tone can always convey the message better than a harsh tone. Most folks like to use an inconsiderate tone with children in a public setting. Be as direct as would be prudent. Tell your youngsters about your inconveniences at work; impart your regular exercises to them and learn more about their day. When you know one another better, you bond well and create trust. The better comprehension you have with your youngsters, the less demanding it will be to control their crime.

Do you recollect the last time you went with your kid to his most loved play area or brought him to play with his most loved business play area hardware? Kids want parental consideration. Fits of rage and emergencies are some of the time only an endeavor to collect your consideration. You need to discover what's annoying your youngster. It could be school issues or a battle with the kin at the school playground or near commercial playground equipment. There are a ton of reasons that can prompt 'tyke stress,' which in the end prompts terrible conduct. In this way, discover the reason and stop it from developing in any way.

Accusing your kids without knowing the reason can prompt difficult issues. Your youngsters need you to comprehend what they are experiencing. Hence, take in more about their issues before you sentence them to two weeks of no gaming.

Be respectable to your kids regardless of how awful their behavior gets. Youngsters can be inconceivable some of the time, however, remember that they are just kids. Discipline can aggravate their behavior, as well as make you lose your appreciation and adoration. Treating them the right way can fortify your bond and permit you to tame the repressed beast (that resides in every child) that triggers the terrible conduct. Respect equals respect, and remembering that can help you a lot with your kid’s bad conduct.

How do you discipline your kids? Are you the bad guy when it comes to disciplining kids? Share your thoughts on the above discussion in our comment section below and share your opinion with other parents.

Action Songs for Kids of All Age Groups

The hardest job for today’s parent is to keep kids fit despite of all the enticing distractions that make it impossible for children to leave the couch. So to help your kids get into action, I have dug up a few action songs that are perfect to get kids of any age into action for an intense physical workout. So put on your work out pants and get your kids out of bed and prepare for a bombastic work out.

Get Up! By Pam Minor

With this song, do a warm up routine. Jumping jacks are great for warm up, but you can use any routine to get the muscles to prepare for the exercise.

Wake up and stretch
Rub sleep from your eyes
Get out of bed
I’ve got a surprise
We’ve got to move
Our work’s cut out
No matter the weather
We’re gonna shout Hey
It’s time to make a bright new day

Hurry get dressed
Brush your hair too
Breakfast is ready
And so are you
We’ve got to move
Our work’s cut out
No matter the weather
We’re gonna shout Hey
It’s time to make a bright new day

Go brush your teeth
Grab books and lunch box
School bus is coming
This day really rocks
We’ve got to move
Our work’s cut out
No matter the weather
We’re gonna shout Hey
It’s time to make a bright new day
Hey it’s time to make a bright new day

Hi De Ho by Andrew Queen

This is a great song for aerobic exercise. If your kids are into water aerobics, then this is the best song out there. Simply encourage your kids to follow their usual exercise routine, but ask them to sing along and a clap at the end of every chorus to make things interesting. This will prove much better than the outdoor playground equipment activities.

Hi de, Hi de, Hi de ho
Wig-wig-wig-wig-waggedy wo
Bop she-bop she-bop she-bo
Reach up high and reach down low

Hi de, Hi de, Hi de hee
Wig-wig-wig-wig-waggedy wee
Bop she-bop she-bop she-bee
Flap your wings and shake your knees

Hi de, Hi de, Hi de hi
Wig-wig-wig-wig-waggedy why
Bop she-bop she-bop she-by
Wave your hands up to the sky

Instrumental – guitar solo

Hi de, Hi de, Hi de hay
Wig-wig-wig-wig-waggedy way
Bop she-bop she-bop she-bay
Twist your body in every way

Hi de, Hi de, Hi de how
Wig-wig-wig-wig-waggedy wow
Bop she-bop she-bop she-bow
That’s all folks now take a bow

Now Jump! by Wendy Rollin

With this song, simply encourage kids to act out the lyrics.
Put your hands together, make a happy sound
Open arms wide, then clap
Now Jump
Twisty jump, arms stretched wide, jump as you twist side to side

Wave your arms way up high
Lift arms high over head and swing side to side
Now Jump
Twisty jump, arms stretched wide, jump as you twist side to side

Can you swim in rhythm
With your arms, do a forward swimming motion, in rhythm with the music
Can you do it backward
With your arms, do a backward swimming motion, in rhythm with the music
Don’t stop
Don’t stop

Now stop
Stop, with your hands held out, palms out, like a policeman stopping traffic

Put your hands together, make a happy sound
Open arms wide, then clap
Now Jump
Twisty jump, arms stretched wide, jump as you twist side to sides
