It’s that time of year again – back to school! A normal school day ends around 3 PM, but most work days aren’t done until 5. Once your kids are old enough to come home by themselves, it is important for them to know what activities are safe without an adult present. Even if your kids go to a sitter, knowing this information is helpful in case of emergency. Utilize this fun activity and have your kids color in the pictures that show things that are safe to do when they are home alone.
And just because school is ending, doesn’t mean family fun has to! Use this activity to find fun activities in a word search to do with friends and family.
