Making slime is a super fun sensory activity for kids, even older kids and parents can enjoy playing with the big hunk of goo that comes out of mixing a couple of simple ingredients together.
One of my favorite things to do with the kids is read together. Not only do I really enjoy it, but it’s one of the things that we do consistently in our homeschool. There are some things that we end up skipping when we run out of time or don’t do consistently, but reading together is something we do almost every day.
Games are an excellent and fun way for kids to learn and in fact they often don’t even realize that they are learning! We use games often in our homeschool and I love that we can pull out a quick game when we have a few extra minutes and sneak some meaningful learning into the day.
Recently, I read a blog post from a mom who decided that it was a waste of time and effort to have her child write thank-you notes. Every time she asked her child to write the notes, her child would fight it. The child didn’t want to do it.
We have entered the busiest time of year for many people and it can be overwhelming, stressful, and difficult to stay organized. At the exact time when we want life to slow down so that we can celebrate the birth of our Savior, Jesus, we also experience a lot of pressure to get things done.

As parents, it can be frustrating when our kids show attitudes of ungratefulness. We want them to express appreciation for the things they have and not complain about what they don’t have. It can be upsetting and even embarrassing when our kids are ungrateful.
Are you considering homeschooling but aren’t sure if you are self-disciplined enough to do it?
Do you want your beginning writer to write their own thank you notes but aren’t sure if they would be up to the task of writing a lot of different notes?
There is something wonderful that happens when a child becomes engaged in a story. That moment when they stop fidgeting around and become completely still, listening intently as the words come alive in their mind. It’s exciting to watch it happen, knowing that a child is growing an appreciation for books and reading, just by listening.
