If you haven't experienced Handy Manny yet then I can recommend you do so! First launched by Disney in 2006, this helpful handyman is a great role model for kids of all ages. As a parent I find it refreshing to have a positive character for my young boys to watch. Like all Disney programs for children there is no violence but what I enjoy the most is the fact Manny doesn't use computers. It is good to see a show that teaches the benefits of gaining real world skills and the rewards of having a trade.
To test the wits of the toddlers you can give them coloring puzzles. Let them first try to complete the puzzles and then color them once done. Since toddlers hold a perspective of what color an image should have, let them do the color they like. However, as they advance, try to push them to make the coloring resemble the actual looks of the thing represented by the images in the coloring books.
Spongebob is a well loved character that both children and adults recognize. Add some holiday fun by printing out coloring pages of this individual as well as his cast of fun characters. There are many such coloring pages that feature Spongebob in a Santa hat, decorating the tree, with presents, and much more. Children will be very excited when they see all of these different activities taking place in the coloring pages.
