Looking for things to do at home?

If the late winter/early spring weather has your family house-bound and you're searching for some new ideas to try out with the kids, check out these resources:

The Early Literacy Calendar of Wisconsin -- with activities for each day of the year, aligned with early learning goals, you're bound to find some great options here!

Sesame Street Family Play -- an app that gives you ideas for simple games to play together with your child(ren), tailored to your surroundings and materials on hand (spoons, shoes, hats, everyday types of things).  The app also gives information about what your child is learning through each game.

Knoala -- a free app I've just discovered that is full of ideas for activities, story starters and more.  It's got an easy-to-use interface and a great filter so that you can narrow down the activities to exactly the type of thing you're looking for right away.

If any of you try these out, I'd love to hear about your experiences with them.  Any other top-notch recommendations?  Tell us about them in the comments below!
