How to use a map? Activities for kids & parents that don't cost anything.

This is so, so important. I can’t stress enough what a vital skill this is.

I know that you may think now: ‘We’re not going to need that with all the GPS & iPhones & smartphones with satellite navigation systems.’

Well, just imagine you are in a place where there is no cell reception (yes, there are places like that on this planet), your battery is dead, you lost your device, etc. Once again, reading maps is an essential skill. And, after all, all these apps on the…

Grandchildren, BINGO and Alzheimer's Disease

I think that one of the saddest things about Alzheimer's disease is the fact that it often robs children of their grandma or grandpa. Children are very astute. They know that grandma or grandpa is there "physically", but they can usually sense that they are not fully "present".



Little ones might be frightened. Tweens might get very quiet, and teens? They might just get angry. So how…

Three Things That Made My Day Less than Stellar

I'm a list girl.  Always have been.  Always will be.

I like a chore list.  I like the focus it gives me during the day and I love, love, love being able to cross things off my list as the day goes on.

I live by a grocery list.  I don't understand how people can go to the grocery store without one.  Unless you have a list in your head of the 3 to 5 things you need, but then again, that's a list.  A mental list?  Yes.  But a list, nonetheless.  Walking through the aisles…

Why I LOVE Infantino Puzzles

I am always looking for puzzles and games that have educational components that my soon-to-be 4 year old will also find entertaining.  One brand that I absolutely L-O-V-E is Infantino!  I knew that they made a lot of different baby items I liked, but I had no idea they made puzzles until I found one at a local discount store.  The packaging caught my eye, with its cute little yellow box with bright pictures of the puzzle pieces on the front, and an actual puzzle piece attached to the handle. … Continue
