This time of year always sneaks up and before you know it, kids are trading in swimsuits for back packs and the buses are back on the roads and snarling traffic every morning. Yes, it’s back to school season; every parent’s dream. But in between filling out wardrobes, picking up school supplies and whipping schedules into shape, there will still be time for fun, new ideas and activities that can enhance school time and make the parents job a little easier.
Spoonful.com which is one of the Disney Company’s sites, has a wealth of ideas for parents and kids that include new breakfast recipes, games, activities, print-outs, art projects, holiday ideas and even a blog with new ideas every day. While clearly a commercial site (ads for Wal-Mart, Disney cruises and merchandise are visible), Spoonful is more focused on helping families with useful ideas and information than on just selling things.
This is the kind of site that might be fun for both kids and parents to spend some time looking around on. It’s big enough to not repeat itself but maintained enough to have fresh content on a regular basis. Have a look and see if you get any good back to school ideas or a new game to try with the kids.
