janet.b.nance Hi! I like the idea too. Accouple yrs ago a lady advertised a swap on Craigs List and had it at the Kent Library. Afterwards, she donated anything people did not want to take home. I would like to participate too. Just need to know where and when.

Need some new, cool, and creative activities with lil boy, even if it's ideas for some group gatherings even better!

kristi.warner.58 Last year I did a letter each week ....no time for flashcards was the blog I followed for ideas. The kids really seemed to like it and they learned a lot too!

alexandra.shaeffer.5 That letter of the week I think is a great idea. Because my lil guy is almost 2 1/2 and it would be a great way to get a little bit of a headstart for pre-school.   See More

my daughter's birthday is right around the corner! A lot of the kids invited to her party are older. Should I include games and activities for the older kids even if she can't participate? Does anyone have suggestions for easy all ages games for a LARGE group of kids?
