Never Ending Piles of FunNever Ending Piles of Fun
According to the calendar of silly holidays, April 15 is National Laundry Day, but most parents would agree that every day is laundry day! Today we’re having a little fun with it and bringing you a bundle of new resources called Never-ending Piles of Fun! Maybe a laundry-themed collection sounds a little odd, but why not? We can teach our kids some self-care skills--another bright spot in our current circumstances. Kids usually like to help, and when we make the chores fun, they’re often eager to pitch in.
