A MUM has been labelled a “genius” by other parents after sharing a fun activity they can set up for their kids in seconds, which will keep the tots busy for ages.
Celena Kinsey took to TikTok to share the first in a series of videos she’s doing of activities you can “set up for your kids that should take you five minutes or less”.

“So for my parents who don’t have a lot of time but want to make fun play experiences for your kids, this is for you,” she added.
For the activity, you’ll need a pack of craft foam, which you cut into different shapes.
“Give kids a cup of water and some paintbrushes and let them make window mosaics with their foam pieces,” she explained.
Once the water is applied with the paintbrush to the back of the foam, it can easily be stuck on the window.
It can also be easily removed – which is equally important!
Celena concluded her video by sharing another “mum hack”, as she said: “Once they’re done, give them a towel so they can be window cleaners.”
She was quickly hailed as a “genius” by other parents, with one writing: “Love it. Thanks!”
“Ok this one is genius!” someone else wrote, to which Celena replied: “My kid either loves painting one day or loves cleaning the other so no matter what it’s a win.”
“You’re the best! Love your creativity mama!” another comment read.
“Ah thank you!! Just trying to survive age 3 unscathed,” Celena responded.
“Omg this is great for working parents! Thank you!” someone else added.
With Celena replying: “You’re so welcome!!! I have so much more where this came from now that I’m trying to juggle a baby too.”
Foam sheets are readily available in supermarkets or craft shops, with The Range selling a pack of 20 sheets for just £5.99.
