    Just ran across your site. I like the article subject of "I'm bored!" So often we just park kids in front of the TV when we could be doing something much more creative and stimulating!

    So glad you liked the article! You are right, there are lots who are guilty of letting them watch too much TV. Around my house hold we try to do other activities such as painting, coloring, making playdough (making it, THEN playing with it), cooking and so on. Really if they can walk and talk then they are old enough to do activities with. Mine are 2 and 4, but LOVE to help create things and with a little help do other types of crafts. Heck in December we even made Christmas ornaments (my 2 year old included! Made the clay, cut out the designs, and painted them - they had such a blast!).
