    “Skittles” is an excellent outdoor activity that helps develop children’s cognitive and fine motor skill. It can also get competitive, so the children may keep themselves entertained for hours.

    Children love bubbles. Bubble art is an excellent activity that will have your kids amazed at the wonder of bubbles. When they finish they will have a beautiful piece of art to hang on the wall.
