Summer is here! Children are now actively counting down the days until school gets out for that long summer holiday. Parents are busy making summer camp and vacation plans. It is a busy time of year. Summer is filled with trips to the beach and the playground, camping trips, time spent at the county fair or state park, riding the roller coaster or ferris wheel at the amusement park, going to the pool, barbequing…just having a good time.
Perhaps you are looking for activities for your children to do, little things that they can enjoy. Small children often love to color, and will go through coloring books like nobody’s business.
