With the coming school year, I have started thinking about how we can set aside some quality time as a family. I have one child in charter school and one homeschooled. My husband also works a shift that means he will see my oldest a lot less. I decided to be deliberate about this and I have put together some family quality time ideas to make the most of our time together. What do you during the school year to make quality time a priority?
My daughter just finished coming to me for help. She decided her bear needing more stuffing. However, she couldn’t figure out where she was having problems with her needle and thread. After a quick adjustment, she was able to sew her bear back up and feel a huge sense of accomplishment. It got me thinking. There are life skill kids should have so they can feel confident when they move out one day. I am going to share a few life skills I think kids should have and resources to help them learn them.
10 Life Skills Kids Should Have
My kids love art. They love to draw and create beautiful things. I am ok at teaching them some of it but sometimes I like to let them learn from someone else. There are some fun learn-to-draw books out there. However, my kids are visual learners and need to be able to see the art project in process. We have started using Youtube to get them more art tutorials without buying a new art curriculum. I decided to put together a list of 10 art YouTube channels for kids in case you want to use YouTube as part of your child’s art curriculum or just for fun.
