For Young Kids
Our small children have needs all their own. When it comes to activities it's pretty easy to keep them busy on the playground, in the backyard, and out and about.
But what about if you need to get things done at home? What if it's raining outside? How do you keep your children busy and from climbing the walls? Well I've had those times so here are a few things just for them.
- Print out this Spring Printable Dress-Up Set (Girl and Boy Dolls and clothes) from Multitaskin Mom and cut out for your little ones to have fun designing Spring scenes. This would also make good scissor practice for your preschoolers so print out several copies. Use good safety scissors of course.
