Like Jill said, when it comes to parenting I’m an Advanced Beginner. I’m reluctant to share much of my own parenting advice, but sharing resources and good advice from others, now that I can do.
What to do with all these Legos?
I know, they hurt to step on. One solution is a play mat that can be gathered into a bag, so all the of the Lego pieces are collected without having to pick them up. See how easy it is to make this Lego play mat from Tiny Happy.
Should siblings share a room?
Our kids will share a room, at least while they’re young. Kids crave company. Simple Mom shared insights about her kids sharing a room. (Be sure to see the thoughtful discussion in the comments.)
What do I do with an overly-energetic child?
Learn practical strategies for what to do when your child has a wild streak from Mommy’s Idea Book.
How to entertain a handful of kids?
My friend and I trade babysitting every Friday morning. Lane always comes home from my friend’s house with creative art projects, like a bouquet of paper irises that have petals made from hand prints. What will I do with the kids when it’s my turn next? I’m going to try this fun idea with ribbons and music from Make and Takes.
I couldn’t miss a chance to share this…
You know how simple ideas are always the best? I really love this easy method to make pancake letters and pictures. (If this were my great idea, I would never share the secret. I would just keep it to myself and let people think I had extra special pancake skills.)
