Sometimes I think it’s with everyone we all are running the same race. I have to keep activities ready and plan them on every month basis to engage my child in her free time at home and where we can spend some time together. So, that during house hold chore or trying to meet client’s deadline I am assured she is learning and having fun at the same time.

Today, I am sharing a play based learning activity Magic Joey which not only support my child in terms of engagement But, she also learns and is great for enhancing her skills.
