We live in a capitalist society where the value and price of any given commodity will be directly determined by the interrelated concepts of supply and demand in that the more readily available a particular resource it is, the less it will cost the purchaser and the converse is also true which is why gold is far more expensive than the likes of coal.
Wild and woolly weather outside and nothing for the kids to do how about kid coloring pages. All children love to color in and its much better for them to color on a piece of paper than on your walls or floors. Most children love to display their work but sometimes computer paper can be quite expensive when children are young and only put one or two lines on the page and then say they are finished. There are cheaper alternatives to computer paper and give just as much if not more enjoyment to your child but also utilise both sides of the paper twice the amount of time on one piece of paper.
Yes, it is a remarkable journey that our dear friend Pooh has managed to tread in his lifetime, but when you are traveling in the car for long distances it is perfectly understandable (albeit it extremely frustrating as well) that children get restless, agitated and then as a direct result of that, misbehave and react badly. Children have poor attention spans and extremely limited thresholds for boredom meaning that the parent should ensure that they take proactive steps to keep the little ones occupied. Whenever you are traveling long distances by car, it is little wonder that many of us want to keep the costs associated with the journey to an absolute bare minimum, after all given the significant amount of money that will have to be spent just to cover the cost of fuel how wouldn't want to keep the overheads as low as they can?
