Top Ways to Cure Your Children's Cabin Fever Wintertime Blues!


BabbaCo MarkersHas your child ever pretended to be an astronaut? What about had a play date with their favorite stuffed animal? When kids use their imaginations, not only do they have a ton of fun, but they develop the abstract thinking skills that are so important for academic learning later on.

Engaging in pretend play also helps kids learn impulse control - which turns out to be even more important for school success than IQ!  So by encouraging your kids to exercise their imaginations, you’re helping lay the foundation for future success. Who knew learning could be such an Amazing Adventure?

This month the BabbaBox has partnered with Shutterfly so that you can bring your child’s Amazing Adventures to life. There is no better cure for the short winter days than unlocking the imaginations of your little ones. Here are the details on what you’ll find inside your “My Amazing Adventures” BabbaBox…
