Today SandwichINK is guest hosting a great article, Do-It-Yourself Carschooling Activity Book, by Diane Flynn Keith, author of the fun book, Carschooling: Over 350 Entertaining Games & Activities to Turn Travel Time into Learning Time – For Kids Ages 4 to 17. Her website, CarSchooling, is a terrific resource for car activities for Sandwich Generation grandparents and their grandchildren, especially if you spend a lot of time in the car with your grandkids. Her current newsletter is especially perfect with Thanksgiving coming up so soon! And even if you aren’t traveling in the car with the wee ones, these kids coloring pages, activity worksheets, poems, and mazes would still be fun to print out and take along on your visit. You can have fun working on them with your grandkids during quiet moments.There’s even some fun Thanksgiving songs to sing together. 🙂
