Create a Family How-to Guide
These days, pretty much all appliances have complicated directions. The washing machine, DVR, or home security system may not be as easy for your child (or your babysitter!) to understand. With this activity, your child will create a homemade "how-to" guide that will give directions on how to do certain household tasks. He'll figure out how to work that tricky DVR and get a chance to practice his reading and writing skills!
