My boys crack me up! I think this is a great way to make tv a fun involved activity. They love learning about animals and other parts of the world.

Make sure to peek over at Made by Joel – he created a fabulous printable Paper City Paris (Lego men do Paris anyone?) These are great to take somewhere there is a long wait!

Tomorrow is a special guest post with some fun toddler activities (I know some of you have requested them!)
