    What a lovely list! I don’t know about preschool kids, I’ve bookmarked this for the summer holidays.
    I really miss the preschool years, it goes much too quick and it really is a special time. I used to go to lots of clubs and activities in the mornings with my two but i would find the afternoons a bit long and isolating at times, particularly in the winter.
