We learned a lot together. Hayden (successfully) made his own fidget spinner! Kids will figure it out! AND probably learn something along the way.
Our family has long been known as The Courtney Six. We enjoy hanging out together- even now that most of the kids are teenagers and we’re often looking for family things to do.
