For a stay at home mom, I often find myself anywhere but home. I know I’m not alone in that. Once your kids hit 3 or 4 you suddenly find yourself taking them to all sorts of activities.

These are all necessary, but they can result in waits and lines. I need easy no-prep activities for busy on the go families.
