We don't do much in the way of snacks. She's pretty good with three meals plus her milk. When we do, it's almost always fruit. A banana or apple makes a great toss-in-the-bag treat. For snacks at home, it's usually grapes or sliced strawberries. Occasionally some cheese cubes or half a peanut butter sandwich if it's going to be a really long time until dinner.
With the cooler weather upon us, here is a collection of easy winter inspired cut, sew, knit crafts that you can do with the kids. There are glove monsters, no-sew scarfs, and sock snowmen. Winter is a great time to get crafting.
Fidgets and other sensory hand held toys are a great way to encourage attention and concentration. We all love to rock on a chair and click our pens or chew gum to stay alert and attentive, so why not let children have functional and socially acceptable fidgets too, to help them learn and keep them focused on learning.
