The end of the school summer break may be peaking its head above the horizon but the time when you can pack the kids off is still a ways off.
Usually, I might try to host a contest for you to win prizes for the kids, but this time around they are just as suitable for parents who want something to do while trying to ignore their complaining children. I have teamed up with the wonderful folks at Thunder Bay Press, and between us, we’d like to give you the chance to own your own set of this “Terrific Trio” of activity titles.
