Kids are from Krypton, Parents are from Pluto Radio Series Update June 17: What to do when you hear: “Mom, there’s nothing to do.” (Part 2)

Hope you had a chance to have your kids work on their dream boards this week. If not, it’s a great project to do for Father’s Day! What a meaningful gift—presenting dad with posters of their kids’ dreams. Additionally, this week I introduced another project that you can do with your kids—appealing to all age groups…Scrap-booking. It’s a wonderful opportunity for kids to snap new photos, and sort through old photos to create their own memory book. This is also a great family project that can start conversations and story-telling about little mommy and daddy stories, as well as stories about the kids when they were younger. Scrap-books are wonderful keepsakes, and can be added to as your kids grow. Creating memory books is a wonderful way to foster family closeness and generational bonds. Telling stories about when you were growing up tickles kids to know that you were once a kid, in trouble, causing mischief and generally being just like they are! Happy Father’s Day!

Top 5 Tips of the Week:

  • Capture the memories and treasure them through photos and drawings
  • Develop creative projects that can appeal to every aged child individually
  • Use scrap-booking to get the conversation going and keep it going
  • Give each of your kids a memory book that they can add to as they grow
  • Show your kids you love them…through your words and your actions

Enjoy your kids!
