From my children only the youngest one (14 months) really needs an entertainment, other two usually have their own idea of what they want to do and we only correct that a little.
- Audiobooks - nope, my kids don't like them and i don't force it. They read normal books, we usually take few with us and later buy some on the way. We also use often book exchange boxes which became very popular these days. I don't know who had this idea, but it is a great one!!!
- video games - yes, but only certain ones. First we have to "approve" the game if they want to play something new, mostly we are choosing from gameplaf
cause they have different categories and all the games which are in the categories "for boys" or "for girls" are mostly ok. No shooters, no horrors, no naked people. My son likes racing games+sport games and my daughter usually plays some puzzle games. The playtime for both of them is strictly limited. They get 4 "tickets" a week each ticket is for a half hour. They can earn and extra half hour of game time a day if they do and extra job. I usually make it a harder job. Can't play anymore than 1 hour a day. With the exception of Sat. No playing after 5:00.
- Board games - that's our favorite things from this list. Monopoly, Dixit, Chess, Scrabble, Clue, Risk, Checkers, you name it.. We have lots of board games and mostly play on Sunday afternoon or other days in the evening. It becomes more and more interesting to play games with our children as they grow up. You can really notice how they change their way of thinking .
- Card games - are not so popular in our family, I don't have anything against, we just don't have cards with us and we never thought of buying. The only deck of cards we have it's UNO. Our kids like it a lot, often ask to play with, cause its more fun to play with many people.
From the thing you didn't mention we also do some exercises in the morning together with the kids (good way to get rid of too much energy), cycling, hiking, play volleyball.
