Many of these apps were found by The Teaching Palette , be sure to check out their fantastic site for more helpful resources! From learning the ABCs to doodling, there’s plenty of terrific apps out there that will pass the time but also educate.
I made this mini mailbox for the Strawberry Shortcake party. The activities for the party were centered around this little guy. Each of Strawberry Shortcake's friends sent the party goers a letter containing instructions for an activity to do.
