Andi passes along this great tip for downloadable puzzles and games:
A great way to keep the kids occupied for a few minutes is with a puzzle or game. Dover publications has a weekly sampler that always includes a few children’s activities. Download word find puzzles, or coloring pictures and save them to keep the little ones busy at the table at a restaurant while you’re waiting for food or in the waiting room at the doctor’s office. To sign up, visit /www.doverpublications.com/sampler1/ and submit your email address. You’ll receive an email message every Friday with a link to this week’s sampler. If you find activities that your kids particularly enjoy, the sampler tells you which of the affordable Dover activity books the samples came from.
