Are you looking for creative activities to do with your children?
I believe spending time with your kids having fun together may just be the single most important thing you can do to nourish your children, stimulate their minds, and make happy memories.
Hi, I’m Eva, a homeschooling mom of four, living in Chicago.
At my first child’s nine-month check-up, a pediatrician said, “Kids don’t mind crying. That’s what they are supposed to do—cry.”
“My kid minds,” I told him. “I’m pretty sure of that.”
Since then, I’ve had ample opportunity to observe kids’ minds in action, and I’m awed time and again by their bubbly energy, inspired creativity, passionate curiosity, and eager determination to experiment with the world around them. I wanted to nurture those little minds in the best way possible and not by doing what doctors thought best, but by doing what felt right.
I spent the early days of motherhood trying to do every nurturing, educational, and memory-making activity I could think of. It was exhausting, and I never had time for myself.
During the last ten years, I’ve learned to optimize my efforts. In the process, I discovered that when I take time for fun with my children, parenting is much easier and less stressful, and life is more joyful.
I’ve enjoyed saving these favorite fun activities and pulling them out of a bag when needed. I’m happy to share them with you, so you too can connect with your children, make happy memories, stimulate their minds, and still have time for other things.
