My Aunt Maggie sent me a link to this wonderful printable book full of quick and easy activities to entertain kids. There's a few things I really like about this book. First off, it's not strictly an e-book. It's only 37 pages long (which sounds like a lot, but isn't considering the volume of information in it) and isn't heavy on pictures. Second, the ideas are wonderful. They are engaging, low cost, and are the kind of activities that build great memories. They are ideas that are so simple that you've likely never thought of them. It would make a handy reference for when the kiddos are getting bored.
Sometimes I think we try to hard to entertain children. We forget that the biggest joys are those usually found in the most simple activities. This is a great book to help anyone who deals with children "get back to basics."
