I don't know about you but I have major mom guilt when it comes to Ipad/Screen time A N D having to constantly break up fights between my kids all day (how am I in this stage of life already??).
Activity boxes have been a life saver ALREADY and it has only been a whole 24 hours of having them made and created. My kids are enjoying them independently but also playing together!
I'm going to break them down, box by box.
