Playing Together

The Challenge:

Parents are having kids later, and spaced farther apart; blended families, step families, and extended families often mean kids with a wide range of ages live and play under the same roof. How can a busy parent spend quality time with each child?

The Solution:

Playing Together, 101 Terrific Games and Activities That Children Ages 3-9 Can Do Together (Simon & Schuster, 1995) honed in on the new family demographics. This resource for parents with multiple kids and a limited amount of time, helps them plan do-able crafts, cooking, and games by breaking each activity into three age-appropriate levels. The book was later published in China.
