Punch Cards! I plan on making my own for Taegan. So many possibilities for these! Stay In Bed, TV Tickets, Good Deeds, Chores, Reading, Potty Training, Good Grades, etc, etc! The kids fill the punch card(s) and get a reward. I think this is a fun alternative to a chart on the wall. There are some freebie punch cards on the web if you don't want to buy them or make your own. by diane.smith

Christmas craft with babies and young children! Get some brown paint, paint it all over their piggy toes and let them make some prints on paper, take a black marker, draw in antlers, get some googly eyes and red paint or red pom-poms for the nose! Then, cut it out in a circle, punch a hole in the top, put some string through it and voila! You have a keepsake ornament for life :). by christy

Children can create beautiful silhouettes with cut out shapes from magazines, or create their own! Lay the cut out on a piece of paper (or use a small bit of gluestick to prevent movement) Paint over the shape with watercolors, rub with crayons, or smudge with pastels- when the cut out is removed, a beautiful silhouette remains. A great art project for animal studies or for learning about shadows and light! by billie
