Curious Minds: 40 Hands-on Activities to Inspire a Love of Learning
Summer is here and school is out which means we are finally able to get the little ones outside more frequently. That is, if it isn’t raining or storming. Sadly, most of our free days have had rain and storms thus far so, we are still mostly cooped up inside. It doesn’t take long to run through the games and inside activities. That’s when we need backup.
This Curious Minds: 40 Hands-on Activities book will help keep your little one busy during those cooped up days. Not only is this book perfect for parents but it is perfect gift for your caregiver too.
Whether that be a child care provider or a camp counselor or even a teacher/ homeschooling parent, we all need to have a few projects and tricks up our sleeve to keep the peace sometimes. Nothing is worse then hearing “I’m bored” and not having anything for them to do.
In Curious Minds: 40 Hands-on Activities you will not only find 40 fun activities to do but, you will also find mini lessons coinciding with the activities taking this to a whole new level of something to do with your little ones.
