For schoolchildren, it is important to choose clothes that are age-appropriate, fashionable and comfortable at the same time. Children of different school levels have different fashion tastes and needs. If your children attend schools that have uniforms, it is easier to choose clothes for them to wear since the schools dictate the types and styles to wear. It is a different story for those without uniforms, where children wear different attire each day. Refer to the school's regulations on dress codes as your guide to make shopping easier.

Before flashy video games, hand-held computer toys and mesmerizing animated movies, there were songs. While the high-tech diversions have their place, songs offer a wholesome alternative for kids. As a bonus, children's songs with movement stimulate development and imagination and provide entertaining exercise. "You don't have to have a good voice to sing with your children; kids just love to hear their parents' voices," says Karen Buriss, a Chicago-based Kindermusik teacher and children's performer. Check out these ideas---specific and general, some familiar and maybe some new ones---for children's songs with movement.
