So I prepare age appropriate and more advanced work and place it on a shelf, usually in the same vacinity as the Insets for design, colour pencils, scissors etc. So a child may choose these activities if they so wish.
To help parents to keep their children engaged and busy in adult environments such as travelling with children or at a restaurant etc. Armed with a a small backpack with crayons, colour pencils, scissors and a glue stick these activities may come in handy.
Here are some resources for you to explore, the choices are endless!
