I spyWhile checking out some fun parenting blogs, I came across  from Glamajama. She has a blog that suggests 20 different ideas to kill time when you’re, well killing time, waiting for an appointment with the kids. One of my favorites from her list was playing “I Spy.” The “I Spy” book series includes at least a dozen books priced at $3 to $11, and my kids loved them. The authors and illustrators Jean MarzolloWalter Wick and  Carol Devine Carson must be fun people. In Wikipedia, Marzollo says that “I Spy” books have the same rhythm and rhyme as “Old Mother Hubbard” and rap — who knew?

We were also “Where’s Waldo” fans. There’s even a 25th anniversary edition “Where’s Waldo Now“– all by Martin Hanford.
