My kids are restless...

Ok mamas... Anyone else's kids getting restless this winter? My 3 year old and 16 month old are sick of their few new xmas toys.

I've made 30 new busy bags this winter and we're running out of "new" at home boredom busters.

Anyone got any awesome ideas, links or people to follow on pinterest?

Apologizing in advance for iPhone typos/autocorrect

Have you seen the Play at Home Mom blog? That one has some great ideas.

They're bags of activities.

Different fun things to hand your kids and help them be entertained and learn.

You can google or pinterest for ideas.

I resisted until I got tired of the invites.

Luckily for me, it holds limited appeal. I can't spend long on it before I get bored. Mostly I get recipes and activities.
