You want to have some time to yourself and play a video game, but you have to watch over the kids?

Get the kids involved by inviting them to play the video game with you, except they won’t actually be playing the video game.

The next time you want to play “Lego Avengers” on your game console, hand each of your kids a controller that isn’t plugged in.

They’ll think they’ll be playing the video game, even though it’s you that’s controlling it, and they’ll be entertained for hours!

Keep in mind that this hack only works with younger children.

Kids can be messy eaters, especially when it comes to ice cream.

It’s hard for them to sit still at the table while eating an ice cream cone, but there’s a way to let them walk around with that sweet treat without worrying about getting stains on the carpet.

Take a paper plate and cut a hole in the middle. Make sure the hole isn’t too big, then stick the ice cream cone through the hole.

With this mess catcher, you don’t need to worry about the kids dripping melted ice cream all over the house.
