“It Worked For Me!” Tip(s) of the Day

20120626-150527.jpg

My friends and I meet every month for a toy swap where we exchange playthings that our kids have grown bored with. It’s a great way to get free toys and a fun excuse to hang out with friends!

I save time pairing up my two girls’ socks by writing my younger daughter’s initials in permanent marker on the bottom of each of her socks. This way I can quickly see what belongs to which child, and they never end up with the wrong-size socks.

To help my 4-year-old son learn his ABCs, I cut foot shapes from construction paper and wrote a letter of the alphabet on each one. Then I taped them to the floor, gave him a flashlight, and told him to shine it on each footprint and say the letter out loud. He loved the game, and he really learned his letters quickly.
