Fun Projects For The Kids

1. Climbing Wall For Kids

I know what you’re thinking, “way too dangerous”. However, if you make sure to start small and build bigger as your kids grow, they will acquire better skills and keep your mind at ease.

Also, especially when they are learning, it’s not a bad idea to throw down a mat below the wall.

Fun at Home with Kids keeps the playroom interesting with this unique feature climbing wall.

I remember playing tic-tac-toe with my daughter for the first time, and thinking how difficult it was to get her to understand what seemed like a simple concept.
