Themed Days 

I know right about now we are all stir crazy for fun! I find that creating 1-2 days a week that have a special activity helps the kids be patient through the regular days and look forward to something extra and fun. And HEY if you’re up for doing this more than once a week more power to you! Klai, our oldest, had a fun idea that we do a themed day once or twice a week…and this week we chose HAWAII!

How I Get My kids to COOK! 

I remember being in college and making a quick easy meal for dinner…I had a few memorized, and sharing with my bestie roommate. She was amazed I could whip up something fast for dinner. I thought it wasn’t impressive..but it was definitely yummy. We chatted for a bit and I realized that because my mom taught us to cook & made us learn a handful of recipes, this is how I was able to cook healthy meals when I was away from my home.

20 things to do STUCK AT HOME 

We find ourselves in a very interesting time, a time where it is best for the greater good to stay home & spend a bit more time with our families. Is this a YAY moment for you or a “WOAH…what am I going to do” moment? Either way, you’re going to possibly go a bit crazy thinking of things to do to keep the kids occupied and somewhat learning as you have a lot of extra time with them.
