One of my favorite memories of family travel growing up are the journals and sketchbooks my mom would bring for us. So I always make sure to tuck a few in when I pack for our own family travel.
I am a big fan of planning family meals an entire month at a time and every time I share our monthly meal plan (you can find them all here!), I get lots of questions about how I get it done. Yes, it takes a little extra time up front, but I find that it saves me so much time, money, and effort in the end.
Challenge your kids to create letter art for as many letters of the alphabet as they can. They can either choose to represent the letters of their name, or try to tackle the entire alphabet
Even if you can’t send Dad away on a beach vacation, you can use one of OOLY’s beachy printables to put him in that frame of mind!
My preschooler is very intrigued by learning to read lately. I must admit, it’s often difficult to get her to sit down and focus on a book for more than 20 seconds. I’ve found that playing games is an easy way to spark her interest in practicing her reading skills.
Combining two of her favorite activities, coloring and playing games, seemed like a great way to hold her interest long enough to practice reading. So, we made this “Build-a-Mermaid or Monster” game to color and play together.
