The Stay-at-Home-Mom Survival Guide: Preschool Activities This is a GREAT site. She has so many clever and easy ways to work with your preschooler and have fun at the same time. They also have infant and toddler activities.

Like so many things (for both kids and adults) learning on a small scale can make it hard to see what's really going on. If you blow it up and break it down, everything gets a lot easier.
