My kids get so much out of playing with these art dice. Toss the dice and draw what you see. It helps them build their visual vocabulary while being a fun way to spend an afternoon.

Summer-time (or any time off from school) can turn into lazy-time if we aren’t careful (by “we”… I mean the parents). It can be easy for us, as parents, to just let our kids lounge around and hop online or turn on the TV when they are bored, but my husband and I really try to keep a limit on those things. That is where our home rules come into play.
