If you are a mom, dad, parent or guardian to children, then you know that when kids are younger, their lives tend to revolve around activities.
The word “activities” can actually be pretty broad and mean a ton of different things, too.

Okay, let’s continue…
What is a kids activity blog?
A kids activity blog is where creativity meets imagination. It’s webpage after webpage of ideas, thoughts, exercises, and activities that you and your child can do together. Most times, it’s run by a parent who actually did these activities with their child. And to me, that’s huge!
Taking advice about great crafts and ideas from someone who has never really created any of them just doesn’t seem all that appealing. I want to be able to relate to the person behind the blog and know that if he/she created a Leaping Frog craft with success, then my child and I can as well. (because sometimes, kid’s crafting is hard!)
With a kids activity blog, you can be certain that there will be a ton of fun crafts, cooking ideas that are kid-friendly plus several education crafts for kids as well. In a nutshell…a kids activity blog is seriously packed full of a ton of fun and learning! (and some really, really great crafts and ideas for family bonding)
