I’ve got something awesome for you today that will help you be more present and connected with your kids, particularly if you’re a parent or grandparent of kids between ages 1-6.
Connection activities that are simple, easy to set up and do and make memories for life – get yours here!
Have you ever had one of those moments when you pick up your child and it feels like they’ve grown overnight?
When suddenly your squishy baby has transformed into a wiggly toddler? Or your petite preschooler is lengthening into a Kid with a capital K? Those moments have acted like ‘check-ins’ for me – reminding me that my time with young kids is short.
I used to get really freaked that I would miss their childhood. It felt like the busy-ness of parenting would overtake everything else. But I’m not stuck in that guilt and worry anymore. (I mean, ok, honestly I am human so yeah, those emotions sneak in sometimes, but they’re not the overriding ones any more, thankfully.)
I’ve discovered a few things that things that make it hard to enjoy this short-lived time with kids:
1 – Not knowing what to do. (Not having a plan)
2 – Being short on time with a long to-do list just to keep life running.
3 – Not having the right supplies on hand when I find things to do.
Is it the same for you?
Well, I’ve got a solution for you — a way to kick-start fun with your kids! This coming week we’re going to take a stand against being over-busy and reclaim fun with our kids.
With a little help from a friend…
My friend Jamie of Hands on as We Grow is inviting my subscribers to join her in October for a fall Activity Challenge. You’re going to get a plan, motivation to do it, and you’ll definitely have the supplies for these activities:
These are simple and fun ways to connect with an activity during this hectic time of year!
If you don’t know Jamie, here’s a quick intro:
First of all, she is my dear friend and a mom who shares activities on Hands On As We Grow that kids and parents love to do together.
She has a knack for simplifying activities to do with kids – eliminating the fluff, and complicated set-up, and picking engaging things to do that meet kids where they’re at in development (she has three boys herself).
She also makes sure to use supplies that you have in your home, so there’s no time wasted running to the store getting the things you need. And she’s all about the fun!
Once you’ve done the 7-Day Challenge, you can continue the fun with your kids. (She has something that will help with that. But for now – be sure you join this challenge!)
It’s more fun with friends – invite yours to joins! Share on Facebook or Pin it!
