Don’t miss The Children’s Busy Book: 365 Creative Learning Games and Activities to Keep Your 6- to 10-Year-Old Busy (Busy Books), it is free today on Amazon. I’ve read The Toddler’s Busy Book, so I’m excited to grab this one for free!

365 fun, creative activities to stimulate your child every day of the year This book contains 365 activities (one for each day of the year) for six- to ten-year-olds using things found around the home. It shows parents and day-care providers how to:

  • Prevent boredom during bad weather with games, kitchen activities, and arts-and-crafts projects.
  • Stimulate a child’s natural curiosity with entertaining math, reading, writing, science, geography, and fine-arts activities.
  • Encourage a child’s physical growth with fun outdoor activities.
  •  Foster a child’s emotional growth with fun family-centered and social activities.
  • Celebrate holidays and other occasions with special projects.
