All of the activities are very easy to implement and use everyday household items except for a few simple craft items that you can purchase at your local dollar store.

The first part of the book discusses the early years while suggesting numerous sensory, fine motor, arts and crafts, and outside and inside play.  The second half of the book will help you prepare your child for school readiness.

However, this book is designed for you to spend time teaching your cild how to play the activities.  It’s imperative you teach your child the rules while playing.

After reading The Happy Mommy Handbook, I have been encouraged to get organized and have a shelf dedicated to preschool activities that my little one can engage in each day during our school time during organized play.

    Right now my little guy is 1 year old and easier to keep happy while we homeschool. By next fall I know we will have more challenges. This book sounds great, especially since it uses household items already on hand.
