Diary of a (Sudden) Work-from-Home Parent (Part 3)

I hope everyone is feeling good and staying strong out there. Now that we’re in week three and the days are starting to blend together (anyone else - just me??) I’m thinking about concrete things I can do to really help our kids work independently and grow more self-sufficient. So I am channeling my inner 1980’s parent and compiling a few tips for any age child to help us Sudden-Work-From-Home-Parents get through the day with a little more work done and little more peaceful parenting.

Kid Science - Seeds the Day!

Looking for activities to fill these early spring days? Little kids were made for dirt and water and it's a good time of year to start some easy greens like salad greens or kale. You really don’t need much space or experience to start a great science project with some seedlings. We grabbed arugula, kale and some wildflowers and decided to give them a go.
