This summer has been full of crafts and activities and keeping the kids engaged and not glued to their screens. I think I’ve done a pretty good job of giving them free time to play, as well as some structured activities we can do together or with friends. These DIY tie-dye shoes were a fun and colorful summer craft we all enjoyed!
My daughter is 100% committed to caring for our Earth and the animals and people on it. We recently learned about bees and our family decided to create a wildflower garden that bees would love. That inspired us to create these recycled paper DIY wildflower seed bombs as part of our Kind Kids Club – to beautify our community and help save the bees. Get this fun, kid-friendly DIY just in time for Earth Day and Spring gardening!
Before the new year, my neighbor and I decided to start a Kind Kids Club for our kiddos in 2017. Each month we would do something “kind” with our kids. January rolled around and I read the book Wonder in the first few weeks. It was such an emotional and touching story of kindness and empathy following the life of August, a 10 year old boy with a facial deformity, going to public school the first time.
“Kinder than is necessary. Because it’s not enough to be kind. One should be kinder than needed.” – Wonder
