Asking your child to complete his homework ideally sounds easy, isn't it? But in reality, it is a task in itself. Activities such as making a paper boat with colourful sheets or joining the dots, or solving simple puzzles makes learning enjoyable.
With changing times, the essence of childhood has shifted from outdoor games to playing video games on gadgets or watching rhymes on mobile phones rather than book reading. Activity books allow you a screen-free entertainment source for toddlers that keeps them occupied for hours!
