The 4-6 Year Olds Must Do List - Creative With Kids

I don’t want to look up one day and realize I missed out on the fun parts of parenting young children, but with the chaos that often is part of this time I also need our activities to be simple and I need them to work.

good ideas how to make learning at home more fun?

My 6 year old boy is doing ok at school but only just, his reading is fairly good but he struggles like many boys when it comes to writing. I feel like I need to do a little bit extra at home with him so he wont fall behind, I'm not talking loads just a few mins a day, however as soon as the word writing or schoolwork is mentioned the battle begins and we have such a mission to try and get him to do anything at all I now completely dread it!
I have tried making things fun as much I can through
