What it Means to have FUN

- A collaborative resource guide to activities for children and parents -

This is not one of the umpteen sites filled with kid's games. This site is dedicated to activities that children and parents can do together. There is an emphasis on things that have moderate to no cost, and don't require special skills from the parent (e.g. you won't find any suggestions to 'go buy your daughter a $20,000 bass boat' or 'teach your son to ride a unicycle').
