Childrens Love Languages

A few years ago my husband and I read a book about Love Languages. It talks about how each of us feels loved in different ways, and how to understand how your partner feels love and needs to be shown love. It was eye-opening for us. We both feel love differently, so we understand that we have to show love differently to one another. Recently we thought to ourselves how different our kids were as well. We discussed all the unique things about each of them. Then we asked each other how do our kids feel loved? So we reopened...

Dancing Ballerina - STEAM project

STEAM activities are really on my mind recently. My kids love to do fun things together, and as they get older arts and crafts are just not cutting it anymore. We have been trying to add in more building and creating activities to give them more range. We found this fun Dancing Ballerina experiment that can be done with a battery and copper wire. This is a great science experiment for an older child, toddlers, and younger kids may not be great candidates for this activity because of the danger of batteries and swallowing. It is also an activity that...

STEAM Activities - Burning Ice

As much as I want to rest and do nothing during Fall break I know that the best way to keep my kids from driving me up the wall is to find ways to keep them busy without driving me crazy. We plan a lot of independent activities during the fall break like legos, art, reading, and outdoor play but we also try to find activities that Mom or Dad can participate in, like this burning ice STEM activity, and gain that one-on-one parent-kid time. My husband loves hands-on activities with the kids. That means a lot of STEAM (Science,...
