I am in the trenches all day armed with glue, crayons, and my own imagination. I know how hard it is to find meaningful activities for my own group of little rascals, so its my goal to share what has worked for me! I can't sit still for more than 30 minutes so most of the activities should take around that amount of time. They should be long enough to engage you're little ones while still giving them worthy instruction.
