Toys and Playthings
If you are out of ideas for projects and activities to keep family members entertained, you should discover the world awaiting you at Instructables. Instructables is a great resource for finding things to make and do alone or as a group. Passionate people from around the world show what they do or make, and then give instructions on duplicating their effort.
It seems like every time I turn around these days, there is a gadget, toy or instrument that needs some kind of battery. If your child is like 'B', I'm sure you're familiar with the routine of constantly changing batteries on items that are used daily, or are accidentally left on. Over time, constantly replacing disposable alkaline batteries adds up in terms of actual cost to you and harm to the environment.
I've just recently learned that kids need to build strength in their hands to be able to write and draw. At gym class with 'B', the instructor said that the jungle gym, trapeze ropes, and bar equipment were fabulous tools to increase kids hand strength.
