This time of year many of us only have young children at home during the work day. The older kids are busy at school, but our infants, toddlers and preschoolers are right by our sides wanting us to play… constantly. As much as we’d love to sit down and have a tea party or play dinosaurs all day, we have work to do and often times it can’t wait. It can become overwhelming and even frustrating to find ways to entertain the kids. It doesn’t have to be such a daunting task and we don’t have to resort to the TV mode for our kids to be occupied while we try to accomplish our work for the day.
