November Activity-a-Day

Happy Moment of my day: L-Pad has a speech delay and so for a typical 3 year old this became a triumph a long time ago. He counted to 10 all my himself!! My favorite is 7, he pronounces it "seben"
Simple joys of life!

I am going to start making a monthly calendar with an activity for each day for L-Pad(3) and I wanted to share. I'll be getting the December one out soon. Please feel free to change and alter the activity to suit you and your family or the weather :)

  1. I just wanted to say thank you so much for sharing all of your wonderful ideas. I just spent over an hour looking over pretty much every post on here and I love everything and am so excited to implement it in our home. My kids are 1 1/2 & 2 1/2 and they are going to LOVE so many of these activities. So thank you!
