75 Screen Free Activities

EDUCATION

Hello friends. How was your weekend? Did you have an extravagant adventure or just rest and catch up on some reading? We needed some chill out family time and we got it. Spring is in the air so we did sneak away to the driving range for an hour. My kids are officially better than […]

I am so excited to share all of the fun we had. So, here’s our Boston Children’s Museum review. The Boston Children’s […]

To(oth) Fairy, or not To(oth) Fairy?

EDUCATION

Hello, friend. Remember the Tooth Fairy? The lady in the white dress (or man, no one really knows) who would sparkle your pillow with her wand and leave a quarter under it in exchange for your tooth? What a magical concept. I am a bit confused by her occupation and income these days. Help! Does […]

Holiday Traditions: Homemade Ornaments

ART, Christmas, EDUCATION

Hello, friend. One of our favorite holiday traditions is to decorate or make homemade ornaments each year. This should probably be a “Flashback Friday” since it meets the criteria of being inexpensive, easy, and fun. Some years we make them from scratch and then decorate them with anything we have around the house. I never buy […]

Holiday Traditions: Christmas Lists

Christmas, EDUCATION, FAMILY

Hello, friend. Christmas lists. Do your children make them? Mine started doing Christmas lists a couple of years ago. At first, it started out as just a letter to Santa that aided me in giving suggestions to the relatives. This year we decided to do it a little different. Each child was given a sheet […]

Newton School Shooting Reaction: Sadness engulfs me

EDUCATION, United States

Hello, friend. Words cannot even explain the sadness I am feeling for these families in Newtown, Connecticut. I thought I would sit down at my computer and write a post but I have come to a complete loss of words. You send your children off to school for the day and never consider the fact […]

Phone Books And Other Miscellany

EDUCATION, United States

Hello, friend. Happy Monday! After I dropped my rental car off at Hertz when I was in LA, I turned around and this is what I saw. An empty shell that once held a phone. It’s hard to imagine that there was a time when we had to carry quarters or calling cards, or read […]

Flashback Friday: Gourd Craft – Weebles

ART, EDUCATION, Fall

Hello, friend. Do you still have an abundance of gourds after the holiday? Here’s a gourd craft you can do. Take those extra gourds laying around and turn them into Weeble characters. “Gourds wobble, but they do fall down.” For those of you who are old-school, you know what I am talking about. For the […]

Hurricane Sandy Relief: The 8 Year Old Philanthropist

EDUCATION, Philanthropy

Hello, friend. How can a child help with Hurricane Sandy relief? My children do not watch TV, so they have been relatively sheltered in regards to Hurricane Sandy. We have had many conversations about the destruction and everyone touched by it, but without a visual, it is often hard to convey the true devastation. On […]
