We’ve all been there. We assume our kids will be grateful and happy to play with all their new toys, but instead they complain that they’re bored! Overstimulation is a real phenomenon. The holidays can be overwhelming for us all, so feel free to incorporate these ideas into your week for a much-needed dose of fun.
If there is any silver lining to 2020, it’s having more time with our kids — whether homeschooling or quarantining. Crafting is an excellent way to relieve stress, so we’ve compiled a list of fun, easy Thanksgiving place setting crafts to help you bust boredom, while also adding a personal touch to your table spread.
November 13th is World Kindness Day. This international observance was introduced in 1998 by the World Kindness Movement. It began as a way to highlight good deeds in the community, overlooking boundaries of race and religion, to recognize the common thread of kindness that we all can share.
The sight of auburn leaves against a crisp blue sky and smells of autumn are enough to make anyone want to craft with nature’s finest art materials. At Shine, nature-inspired, naturally-sourced art materials are among our favorite projects. Learn how to invite natural beauty into your lives and get inspired by fall art ideas.
Use this time productively to demonstrate the kindness, charity, and thoughtfulness you want your kids to assimilate. Joining together in a service project bonds the family closer together and can help kids with anxiety and boredom as well.
