So prepare ahead of time and make sure that you've got enough distractions for the kids so that the trip will be uneventful in terms of fighting. Siblings don't usually like sharing stuff so you'll need at least two of everything. Two sets of crayons, two sets of coloring books.

Now, everyone is always concerned about time, namely, having too little time. Too many things take up too much time. Errands take time, laundry takes time, meals take time. Add a child or two into the mix and time is of even greater importance. As Benjamin Franklin said, "Lost time is never found again." However, I would have to disagree with Mr. Franklin because of one crucial reason; Benjamin Franklin did not have the Internet. Since I don't believe this quote to be true, the question must be asked; how do I propose we win back our lost time? As far as I'm concerned, it is in this realm of free colouring pages that save the day.

When you are planning to hold a Sponge-Bob birthday party, try to send the invitations around 2-3 weeks ahead of the party date. Order matching invitations or make your own. Cut a starfish or pineapple shapes from card stock paper.
Coloring books also help teachers and parents to solidify children's knowledge. Children can be instructed in their colors, the alphabet, shapes, seasonal occasions, as well as spiritual education to be strengthened in church or at home.
