Two and not quite mature enough to play a game meant for 4+ year olds. But my printable fly swatter game? It’s great for this funny age. Telling a toddler they can swat things is kind of a big deal!

More sick days with Blake means more super simple DIY projects from me! Today I’m showing you this easy DIY save, spend, share bank.
