A good project that teaches your child how to follow through with something. Each night for a week (or once or twice a week for a month), Give your child a few pieces of paper. Have him draw a picture and write a sentence. At the end of the week have them put their pages together and see if you can make a story book This is a good activity for a group of children. Each child would make one or two pages of their own then together they can develop a story using all the pages together. Younger children can each draw an animal and cut them apart. Each child putting a part together with the rest. One head, one body, various limbs. The combination animals are very funny, but the most fun of all is naming the animal you have created. ( a monkeypotamus!)
