8 Ways To Make Kids Smile

I’m off to Salt Lake City to meet more than 600 bloggers I have never met before! While I’m gone, I have a special treat for you — my first ever guest post here on Kids Stuff World. I’m so excited to have Rachel of Kids Activities Blog, aka the Quirky Momma visiting us today.

Quirky Momma is one of those places you go to get THE best ideas for things to do with your kids, there is always something new and wonderful happening over there. Bonus points, many of my good pals are contributing content there as well. I think the post Rachel chose to share with us is significant since I hope Kids Stuff World is a place that makes you smile when you visit, and today Rachel is sharing a few fun ways we can make our children smile too!

Without further ado, I pass things off to Rachel:
