I'm Kanda, and I decided to do a blog to let people know how I do things with my kids, and also let other's give ideas. For the summer I love to do an activity calander so the children will never get bored. I try to make it fun and inexpensive. I think the children do look forward to it. I will try and post two times a week on fun things we are doing or give suggestions on what you can do. Some things will be new to me and some I just repeat, because it works.

Music is a beautiful thing God gave us. You can enjoy it by listening, playing, or even dancing to it. Lessons can be pricey. My dear sweet mother has offered to teach a few low income families kids that would not otherwise be able to ever get lessons, she also made dance costumes for years and years as a trade for my nieces. She teaches my kids for me, and I am very grateful for that. If you have a talent that you can trade for lessons, it would be a experience to remember.

January can be hard on kids with no parks to go to. Kids need variety. A simple game is to let them color snow with a spray bottle and food coloring. The zoo animals are more alive in the winter. And instead of a big fort, make a small fort or wonderland for little figures (army guys) on a the picnic table that is covered in snow. Sometimes when the kids are really restless, I'll take them to McDonald's or somewhere with a playground, buy the ice cream and let the play for a hour. Well worth the money. It gets their energy out. The South Towne Mall has a free Dinosaur playground (by major store pad) for parents to rest, and let the kids unwind. The library is also great for story time, and you can pick up books.
