Have you started planning activities for Father’s day yet? With 17thJune right around the corner, there is no better time to let your little ones say thank you for all the things their father has done for them this year.
Tale Totes invite children to build upon and expand their imagination. Combining themed learning with games, books, figures and puppets each set encourages cross-curricular learning.
