None of them required special materials that we don't have on hand, and most of them can be accomplished with minimal parent effort (ahem). It is very helpful because it means it is always easy to find something to do.
There is no place for boredom when the world is wide open to you.
Tomorrow we are off for a day at the coast, but I will be baack for a very special giveaway. My first ever, in fact. You really do not want to miss that.
