Last spring I found a great website and resource through Twitter. If you haven’t visited Productive Parenting you definitely should!
“Productive Parenting provides one new activity suggestion each day based on your child’s birth date! If you have soap, shoes, rulers, and rocks in or around your home, you are ready to begin! Our activities require little to no preparation or materials; but don’t let their simplicity fool you! Activities build on one another from infancy to age five to provide a solid foundation for learning and, at the same time, promote lasting parent-child relationships. Check out our sample activities and see for yourself why Productive Parenting is quickly becoming the premier activity resource for parents.”
It’s been really helpful to me on Mondays, the day that Keaton doesn’t attend preschool. I scheduled to receive a message on Mondays and I look for it as a jumping off place for he and I to do something fun together that morning.
I hope it will be a useful tool for you and your little ones as well.
