In this guest post Dawn from Every Day's A Mistery blog shares a lovely Christmas game with Flockmen. We think it is a perfect illustration of integrated learning whilst ticking all the boxes - #responsibleparenting #familytime #kidscrafts and much more. The aim...
From Parents to Parents
Have you ever tried to bribe your children? Like have you promised to give them something if they do this or that?
I have. 😔
I have to confess that sometimes I have bribed my children with ice-cream, I’ve promised to play a game if they tidy up their room and the list goes on and on. I wish I was smarter. Wish I had more strength to preserve in moments when it was too much. Wish there was someone to learn from. Sometimes parents choose the easiest exit. I bet you know that too!
Finally, the beautiful autumn has revealed its full glory. It is such a perfect time to spend with children and embrace the diversity of nature - exploring the vast differences between leaves, their colour, shape and edges.
We were tinkering with ideas on what to do until we landed on colours. Mostly because they are fun, especially when explore together, but also developing and sharpening skills.
During my childhood one of my favourite things to do were reading stories and listening to them on the radio. What I remember the most are those long and warm-hearted evenings we spent in our summer holiday home, surrounded by the scent of freshly mowed grass creeping into our noses... I adored the feeling of climbing into my snuggly bunk bed and wrapping within enormous blankets and surrounding myself with more than plenty of pillows. But I did that for one sole reason – to listen to my dad’s calming voice as he read adventurous stories to me.
