Just Keep The Kids Busy

Sometimes all you want is fifteen minutes to wash the dishes in peace or just sit and read a book by yourself for a minute.  Hey, Moms are people too!  Here is a collection of my "go-to" projects for when I need to keep the kids busy.  As you will see, not only will these projects keep the kids busy for awhile, but they can also help improve some important skills, such as fine motor, gross motor, and sensory skills.  Not only that, but my kids are almost always ready to jump down and play by themselves once they spend 30 minutes on one of these projects.  It really is an interesting thing to watch...they get done and suddenly they are playing together in the other room without fighting!  I have many more in my book The Happy Mommy Handbook: The Ultimate How-to Guide on Keeping Your Toddlers and Preschoolers Busy, Out of Trouble and Motivated to Learn, which is available on Barnes and Noble and Amazon in both soft-cover and ebooks!
