Star Wars is a classic movie collection. Yet, surprisingly, as a child I had never watched it! Of course, Mister was appalled and began his quest to introduce me to this adventurous, vastly creative, and rather deep series. It's no wonder why Star Wars has so many fans. Today is their unofficial holiday, May 4th.
I'm not a fan of celebrating holidays. Still, it wasn't until this past holiday that I realized just how important it is for our family to celebrate something. Why not the solitary planet that houses us? Check out how you can do your part to help...
I am not a crafty person by any means. Despite my lack of talent in this area, I managed to make a pretty awesome felt board for my toddler. I've seen some pretty snazzy felt boards out there, but who has the time or money for some extravagant project? Am I going to get a Mother of the Week Award for the best crafts? Nope. So I've streamlined this process to make it easier, cheaper, less time-consuming and not as boring as you'd think.
My son loves reading time. He grabs a book, covers himself with a blanket and calls me over. He excitedly points to the things in the book that he knows and describes them in full detail. He inquisitively asks me about the things he doesn't know so he can learn about them too. It's a great way to not only teach him about new things (and how they work) but also to broaden his vocabulary.
