Who here has an active preschooler?
I can assure you that one thing preschoolers (and moms) need to do is MOVE.
For us, sometimes it can be as simple as heading out for a hike, or a couple laps around the house. Other times, it needs to be more involved.
This game had my preschooler entertained for a long period of time! (preschooler time that means over 20 minutes), AND he has asked to play more than once. – Always a parenting win!
