If your kiddos like the movie Walking With Dinosaurs, you might want to grab these free printables.  They have a cute color by number activity sheet, several crafts and lots of free coloring pages.

Plus I saw these cute cupcake toppers and popcorn bags. Those would be fun for family movie night!

Barnes and Noble: Free Online Storytime

03/20/2014. This post may contain affiliate links. Read my Disclosure Policy.

online-storytime

I have mentioned this in the past but thought it was worth posting again. Barnes and Noble offers a free online storytime for children.  I think this is perfect for those rainy days.  Or if you need a few extra minutes to finish dinner, let the kiddos listen to a story.

You can sort by age to quickly find a book suited to your child’s age.  The selection is nice too.  I spotted Olivia, If You Give a Mouse a Cookie, Dr. Seus, Pinkalicious and many more.

Head over here to look at the entire book selection.

And don’t forget about the weekly children’s activities if you are looking for more ideas.
