I recently came across a wonderful parenting site called Productive Parenting. This site is aimed at parents of newborns to five-year-olds, and their goal is "to provide [parents] with fun and engaging ways to interact with your child on a daily basis." Membership is free, and once you sign up, you can customize the site for the children you have. I have signed up for the daily emails, and get one email for Irini and one for Stephen with different activities to try. Each activity is listed with the target age, materials needed, and what skills are being learned. All of the activities I have been sent so far are quick and easy, with materials easily found around the house. I really like being able to add in some new and different things to our day.
