❤️Painted Foil Hearts❤️ This was one of Lily’s favorite activities last year. It’s perfect for toddlers. Older kids will love it too. 💕
Mix a few drops of liquid watercolors with clear glue. Use a cotton swab to paint onto a foil heart. The glue helps the watercolor stick to the heart and keeps it shiny. We’ll be doing this again soon.

After reading about polar bears we did this great puzzle. It was a bit of a challenge with all the white but Bee needed something that challenged his brain a bit more.

It's good to be home, and the kids are thrilled about the craft supplies I brought home from #Creativation18 . #5yo Anna worked hard to finish the cute fabric patchwork art kit from #peppycraft (owned by @panna_official ) that I was given to test out. She loved it, and now my 8yo wants to give it a go. Swap through for a photo of the finished product.

Lola is one of Baby Bookworm’s favourite children’s book characters. She’s one of mine too - she’s inquisitive, kind, knows her own mind and has lots to say. As much, probably more than, her brother Charlie. But it seems she is a rarity because a study of the 100 most popular picture books of 2017 found female characters were 50 per cent less likely to get a speaking part than male ones. We need more authors to press for change like @laurenchildthatsme, more publishers to back leading ladies and crucially, for parents to pick stories where girls are allowed to take centre stage. There’s more on my blog about this (link in bio) and please share your thoughts below. #genderequality #votesforwomen #charlieandlola #‭bookstagram #kidsbookstagram #bookblogger #raiseareader #raisingreaders #readtome #childrensbooks #childrensillustration #kidlit #kidsbooks #picturebooks #bedtimestories #readaloud #readingisfun #bookworm #bookswithbaby #littlereader #bookish #pbloggers #mbloggers #whatiamreading #kidbloggersofig #booksweheart

Growing up chores were "a given" not an "option". Chore responsibility varied as we got older, and until this day I still hate to iron clothes. LOL But I still do it!

This kid here does chores at home, and away from home, too.  When we visited my Mom last month I had him mopping the floors.

Kids benefit from doing chores, and it makes them feel competent.  Whether they're making their bed or they're sweeping the floor, helping out around the house gives them a sense of accomplishment. (Although they may not see it that way now).
.
I was reading the other day on a parenting site that some parents give their kids an allowance to do chores.  We tried the allowance per chore when he was younger but that didn't work well for us.  So no that he's older it's a matter of him helping around the house because he's a contributing member of this family. When he's done with his chores, (and homework) he can play with his tablet  or watch TV.

If you have kids do you "pay" them an allowance or do they "earn" a privilege? .

So excited to try these out from @rockthelocks 
Great knowing these are natural and have no sulfates so they won’t damage their beautiful hair. The detangle spray is perfect for both girls with such thick hair that gets tangled easily. I’m very excited to try the curl boost for my youngest who’s curls are just everything!

We had the best time in the backyard with a large piece of butcher paper pinned to the fence for painting. It’s been too long since we have brought the paint out, but my youngest still tries to eat everything! (Currently banned from play doh 😂) Our local newspaper throws these rolls of paper out a few times a week and they have been a great treasure for art time at home.

My girls love their special dates with me. Allie was supposed to have hers this past Saturday, but both Allie and Grace wanted to go to @colormemine at the Capital City Mall. I nixed the special dates and we went as a family which was fun even though Joe and I chose not to paint. 
Allie of course threw a huge fit as she wanted her dad and Gracie to do something else, but that didn’t change my mind. Grace is going to a conference this coming Saturday, so Allie will have a full day’s worth of Mom and Dad attention. We’re going to be spending the entire day in State College. What should we do with Allie who is 7? Where should we have lunch? It’s all changed so much since Joe and I lived there. (Saving the Creamery and the Nittany Lion Shrine for after the conference so Grace can come)

Love libraries. 📚  There always seems to be another book we need!
Love libraries. 📚 There always seems to be another book we need!
A few days ago, @love_life_littleone asked me to think about #onelittleword to represent 2018. My 2018. .
.
The word #change immediately came to my mind. I was trying to think of other words. Better words. More positive words. But, somehow, I always came back to this word. Change.
.
.
For many, the word ‘change’ comes with a slightly negative connotation. Often, people are afraid of change. Change is uncomfortable. Change pushes you out of your comfort zone. Change creates stress. .
.
And I agree. Change is not always comfortable. And yet. I need change in my life. Like I need the air to breathe. Not all the time. By very regularly. Change is what keeps me going. Change is what makes me move forward. Change is what helps me grow. .
.
I am not sure what kind of change this year will bring. But I know that, at the end of this year, I will not be in the same place as I am now. I can feel the change that is approaching. I can smell it. Like you smell the upcoming rain, the storm, the thunder on a grey and fresh day. .
.
See, comfort is nice. And warm. And kind. Comfort hugs you. Tells you it is fine to stay in your pyjamas all day. We all need some comfort. But, in my opinion, comfort can also be dangerous. Comfort makes you lazy. And care about, maybe even fight over the most unimportant things in life. Comfort makes you grow rather larger than high...
.
.
Let me finish this post with a quote that I wrote on the wall of my room when I was about 15 years old: “The true value of man is not determined by his possession, supposed or real, of Truth, but rather by his sincere exertion to get to the Truth. It is not possession of Truth by which he extends his powers and in which his ever-growing perfectability is to be found. Possession makes one passive, indolent and proud. If God were to hold all Truth concealed in his right hand, and in his left only the steady and diligent drive for Truth, albeit with the proviso that I would always and forever err in the process, and to offer me the choice, I would with all humility take the left hand.” Gotthold Ephraim Lessing

Previously I snuggled with the kids in my bed every morning while we read a couple chapters of our book. Since the baby has been sleeping in my bed we have swapped our reading to the couch and after breakfast. Still wonderful but I'm missing my cuddles.

"Young Wild And Stylish" Crew Neck Sweater / "YWS" 6 Panel Hat Tagstorags.com
Watching my 6 year old's reading skills develop over the last year has been incredible to watch. I think she has inherited my love of books, and she devours them whole as fast as I can bring them into the house!
*
*
At her kindergarten conference, one area her teacher recommended working on from home was 1) recognizing punctuation, 2) reading aloud with inflection, and 3) how those two things together impact reading comprehension.
*
*
This fun book from @theinnovationpress is the perfect launching point to work on all three of those skills and our pick today for #picturebookoftheday. Semicolons, Cupcakes and Cucumbers by Steve Newberry (@scratchgarden) is a story told all through dialogue and the characters are a period, comma, exclamation point, question mark and semi-colon.
*
*
 It's a great interactive book for early readers, while also teaching more advanced readers the nuances of punctuation. Teachers and parents alike will love this one. We made a fun activity pairing - Punctuation Pasta - to reinforce the message with a sensory and writing exercise, coming to the blog later this week.
*
*
Be sure to catch all the daily Picture Book of the Day pick - see Friday's fun winter pick from one of our favorite authors, Jan Brett, at @fun.a.day

T had a great time with his tinker/inventors tray, he used all his tools to take apart some of the electronics we gave him. He’s fascinated by the boards inside and found some tiny light bulbs too. I’m sure it won’t be the last time he does this! #afterschoolfunwithmum

Lately I’ve had the sudden urge to clean. I mean I want to throw everything away that’s been in my house more than 3 years, or anything that the “energy” just feels off. Anyone else?
.
Maybe, Spring is coming early? Spring cleaning kicking in? Idk..but this stuff has to go!

Idk..but this stuff has to go! . . . . . . #healthy_hair_journey  #fro  #naturalwoman  #teamnatural  #nhstyles  #naturalhairdaily  #naturalhairloves  #naturalhairdoescare  #naturalhairqueen  #curlbox  #teamafro  #naturalhairguru  #naturalhairsistas  #luvyourmane  #uknaturalhair  #blackgirlmagic  #naturallyshesdope  #blackisbeautiful  #blackqueen  #curlswithlove  #blacklove  #nolye  #lovemytresses  #unconditionedroots  #blogger  #momblogger  #kidbloggersofig  #lifestyleblogger 
Told the boys if they could make it at least 5 minutes of Trader Joe’s grocery shopping (on this crowded Sunday), then we could get the samples. Funny how edible positive reinforcement is way more effective than telling them to “behave” or “stop fighting”... :) #momlife #parenting #momofboys #kbnmoms #kidbloggersofig #therapyblogger #traderjoes
I asked sweet Allie to hold up the first crochet project I’ve ever finished so that I could take a picture, so she put it over her head and peered our through the holes in the pattern. I wanted to show off my pretty project, but I really didn’t mind her silliness. 😍😂❤️🧡💛💚💙💜💝 #crocheter #crocheted #crochetlover

🦄 STEM challenge: Can you get the unicorn to the other side? I supplied craft stick, tape (just a few short pieces or they use it as a bridge alone), and scissors. Swipe to see the rainbow bridge solution my kids can up with. (Unicorn given to us by @safariltd and craft sticks given to us by @craftprojectideas)

FEEDING THERAPY THURSDAY
food for thought:
How often are you making eating veggies into a game vs a chore?

This week while stuck indoors, this “Feed the Bunny” game is a big hit! We did one bite for bunny, one bite for each of us! We used carrot straws to help B’s little teeth 🐰 crunch her way through the carrot activity in this month’s 🥕 @veggiebudsclub.

Remember, if you are burnt out on offering the same vegetables and getting the same (not so awesome) results, it’s probably time to try a different tactic!

There is so much I want to tell you right now. So much I want to share with you after today’s “Parenting By Connection” Seminar with @tanshi2a and @hand_in_hand_parenting. There is so much I learned... .
.
I tried to summarise some of the key learnings in my stories. Please have a look if you are interested. .
.
And in case you wonder: I have no association whatsoever with @hand_in_hand_parenting and @tanshi2a but was invited to attend their first seminar here in Dubai (there will be many more to come!!). And I absolutely loved it. Loved every word they said 🙏🏼❤️ .
.
Parenting is really simple when you think about it. It is just not easy. Easy, it is not... .
.
Stay tuned for more!

Yesterday morning’s activity with my little man: we made these ‘talking’ clothes-peg puppets 😊 .
.
Luca requested superhero faces, which was not really planned and kind of a challenge for Mama 🙈😅 Otherwise, very easy to make. You could make animal faces as well. A frog 🐸 should work really well. Tag me in your creations! .
.
If you want to see how we made these little guys check out my instastories 😉

One of my favorite #homeschool assignments from this week, written by my 11yo. Notice how she labeled this as fulfilling three different subjects - clever, since I had made a list of subjects she had to work on that day. She has dreams of designing curriculum professionally someday, and this makes me think she will do just fine labeling different state standards, etc.

This assignment is based off of reading she did for the @schoolhouseteachers.com1779 Fashions in History class she is taking (we received a review membership; read our review of that resource here: https://www.mamasmiles.com/schoolhouseteachers-review/ . So far we love this class, copywork printables, and their kindergarten math curriculum.) I smiled when I noticed she picked her favorite type of outfit from the time period and then changed so many details so that it could actually be her favorite.

This past year I neglected my blog. 😌
.
.
I was excited because I finally migrated from blogger to Word Press. However, there was and  still is so much work to be done. It didn't help that I had so much going in both my personal and professional life.
.
ツ Nevertheless, I've started this new year being intentional on blogging, and  setting goals. Another thing I neglected was planning. So when a fellow blogger @mamamissblog  created a blogging planner the joy of returning to blog was rekindled! 💡
.
.
I printed every single month, bought some pretty pastel design folders, punched holes, organized it in a binder and voila! My blogger planner was done!  I used some washi tape & stickers  to decorate and bought some pastel color pens to write and color.😍
.
.
I've been going through each month jotting post titles and looking forward to a successful year! .
.
Are you a planner type of person or a plan as you "go" type of person? That's what I did last year...planned as I "go" but not this year. .
