Are you new to Stitch Fix? Here’s the gist. Stitch Fix is a personal online clothing styling service for women. Put simply, a stylist personally selects five items for you and they are shipped to your house. You try on everything at home and keep what you want and return what you don’t in a prepaid envelope. It’s genius for those that don’t like to shop or just don’t have the time. It’s a great way to try new things too!

Summer Survival Series: Part Two

summer survival, boredom busters

We’re talking about summer with kids at home, and how you can survive!

Did you miss Part One?  Start here: Summer Survival Series: Part One

Part One of the Summer Survival Series involved making a simple daily schedule. My intention with this was to give the kids a general sense of the day and set expectations, as well as eliminate the constant ask for playdates and snacks.

So now that we have our daily schedule, what happens when we’re having a hard time figuring out how to use up some of that free time? Let me introduce the boredom buster jar.

Summer Survival Series: Part Two

The boredom buster jar is a simple jar with activities written on popsicle sticks. I used this jar as a reward for chores completed, and/or good behavior and attitudes. If we had a great day, the kids got to pick out something from the jar to do. (idea originally found at While He Was Napping)

Thank You Cards for Kids

One thing mama always said, was how important sending thank you cards is. Every year, after Christmas or a birthday, we sat down to write thank you cards for each of our gifts received and for celebrating the special days with us.

I’m trying to pass this on to my kids, as later on if they have an important job interview, receive a special gift or help, or have a big life event like a graduation or wedding, I want them to feel comfortable writing out their thanks and appreciation.

Right now, my kids are little and so I have created these special thank you cards for kids, with fill-in the blank spaces that are simple but sweet. It teaches them the importance of not just saying thank you, but being specific about why they appreciate what they received.
