If you are celebrating the opening of Jurassic World like we are (not that our kids are going to actually see the movie in the theater or anything but that’s just a minor detail) then you have to try out this totally gross and amazingly chocolatey treat. I mean really, when you hear your child ask “can we have more Dinosaur Doodoo Bites, Mom?” it will warm your heart and totally make the mess all worth it.
Do your children enjoy watching fish in an aquarium? There is something mesmerizing about watching fish swim around, don’t you agree? Our kids love to go to a nearby aquarium and watch the fish swim around. If your children get excited about fish and want to learn more about them, here is a fun list of fish books for you read together with them.
Summer is a great opportunity for children to fall in love with reading again (or for the first time!) because they don’t have the pressure of school, tests and required reading. Even for homeschoolers who may have more flexibility during the year than traditional schoolers it is a change from the daily schedule (for those of us who take a summer break).
During these summer months children can pick out books that interest them and read for the pure enjoyment of it. Children will often read more and can gain a love and appreciation for books.
Learning toys have a special way of making learning fun so that children don’t even realize that they are working at something. A quality learning toy can be used for years and in different capacities as a child grows. The best learning toys for preschoolers are good quality and versatile so that they can be used even as your child enters their elementary years.
Our children love stories with animals in them, especially because there are so many amazing authors and illustrators who bring the animal characters to life through their writing and illustrations. These books are no exception. The children and I enjoyed all of these fiction picture books with cow characters in them and there are a couple of good non-fiction cow books in the mix too.
