ANOTHER GAME TO PLAY WITH THE HERD- Ball Toss. Would also make a great "rainy day" activity. You could even find tubs or buckets of varying sizes (like nesting bins) for more of a challenge for the older kids (Think Skee-ball).
With a matchbook car or toy train in hand kids imaginations know no limits. Now theres a road that can go wherever your child wants to place iton hardwood floors carpets tabletops couches and even up the walls.
