For those of us in the northern hemisphere, Easter usually means that spring has sprung, which means that summer is hot on its tail (no pun intended!). Beyond the religious significance, Easter is a great time to spend time together as a family. However, in many places the weather is still unpredictable this time of year. Therefore, you may want to have some indoor activities planned in case it rains or is too muddy. One great family crafts that also helps inspire meaningful conversation is a vision board egg.
I am a proud new father of a 3 month old baby girl. She is so much fun to be with, and it is so much fun to watch her grow before my eyes. My wife and I are slowly learning how to bring her with us when we travel around. Our first big trip is going to be to Disney World, which will be in a week. I will write about that one later, I’m sure it will be full of adventures and first times! So far we have done some short trips with her (approximately 2 to 2.5 hour drives), practice runs, if you will. She is able to handle those fairly well, as she likes to sleep in the car. We like to take her to different areas around the Chicagoland area and find that short trips are so far a lot of fun with our baby girl.
Finding the time to make memories with your children is a goal of most parents. Mother and daughter time can be particularly special and desired. Little girls love to dress up, get pampered and mimic the beauty rituals of their glamorous mothers. Why not plan a special at home “Spa Day” to share with your little girl? This can also be a fun activity for au pairs and the little girls that they care for.
It’s impossible to believe, but it is fall at last. While there’s always a sadness at the end of the summer, I prefer cooler temperatures. Even before the chill in the air comes, you may want to do some activities with your kids to prepare for the changing seasons. These fun fall crafts can help you and your kids start celebrating fall!
The changing of seasons is a wonderful time to enjoy the outdoors with your children. Opportunities to educate, excite and encourage creativity are everywhere. Fall is approaching,leaves will be changing colors and the temperatures will be less humid and much cooler.
The parent of a 4 year old, especially a 4 year old boy, is in for a very rough road if they have a phobia-level fear of insects. And I do.
