What others are saying about this pack:

Heather and Nicole have totally knocked it out of the park!

"A must-have parenting hack for anyone who needs to keep a pile of kids busy when winter gets nasty out! There's something for everyone from toddlers through elementary school in this collection. Pre-readers will love the coloring sheets, but the different word puzzles, word games, and other writing activities are fun enough that older kids will actually want to DO them. (Even though they sneak in some well-designed brain-work!) Heather and Nicole have totally knocked it out of the park!"

We give it two thumbs up for fun and creativity.

"My daughter and I spent hours doing these puzzles and word searches... She just couldn't get enough.   As a former teacher, I know how important it is to make learning feel fun and engaging and these ladies did just that!   We give this packet two thumbs up for fun and creativity!"

 I loved this packet! It was fun to do as a family.

"This Holiday Activity Packet is perfect for rainy days! My kids especially enjoyed the crossword puzzles, word searches and word scrambles. They worked individually on their own sheets and challenged one another to complete them! My 2 year old felt left out so we printed up one of the coloring sheets for her so she could join in on the fun. I loved this packet!  It was fun to do as a family and it kept my kids occupied on a dreary day."

Finally, get some guilt-free peace and quiet. It's time to start redirecting your child's downtime with these fun and educational activities!
