As of yesterday I am on a blog haitus while I transition this blog to new blogging software, but you can still find me over at the Natural Parents Network! Have you checked it out yet? Do it! They have an amazing lineup of great bloggers writing about all aspects of natural parenting, and I am honored to be a contributor.
Today NPN is running my post on Toddler and Preschooler Activity Bag Fun. I loooooooove these easy-to-make activities in a bag — great for travel, for breaking up the day at home, to entertain big brothers or sisters while Mama nurses the baby(s!), etc. The novelty factor with these bags, and how easy and self-contained they were, made them work great for us, especially when Emma was a toddler. These can be made for any age or ability level, though — I remember doing things very similar to it when I used to teach kindergarten and first grade! If you can find a group of like-minded parents, doing a group swap is an easy and fun way to get a whole bunch, with minimal effort. Go check out the ones I did, then follow links at the bottom to find more fabulous ideas — there are a TON of them out there! I am actually itching to do some more, soonish….
