Have you ever taken your child to work with you? This Thursday is National Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day. This event takes place every year on the fourth Thursday in April. This year I just so happen to be coordinating the activities at my husband's office. I've spent the last few weeks trying to come up with a variety of activities that will interest kids age three to 18. Read on to see what I came up with!

When I was an art teacher I took both of my kids to work with me on different occasions. Showing my kids where I was going when I left them was important to me. I wanted them to have a visual of where I was when I said I was going to work and what I was doing. I wanted them to understand what work was for me. I was lucky because my work took place in a huge art classroom, full of supplies and activities to keep little kids busy.
