Do check it out and if you have kids or family and friends who have kids, please share the article.  If you like it and found it useful, I would love to hear from you.

Also, don’t forget to check out the other great articles on that site.  It was created for busy parents who need ideas on fun things to do with their kids.  Time flies fast.  Quality time with our kids is very important because they grow fast and they won’t be kids forever.  Enjoy them while they’re young.
