Treasures in a Craft Box

You won’t have to worry too much about your grandchild’s time on electronics at your house IF your house is filled with lots of “fun stuff” for your grandkids to create with when they come over.

First, get an empty Amazon box or a plastic storage box, like a toy box, with enough room for lots of “art stuff”. Next, mark the box with your grandchild’s name.

I can assure you if you start doing this, your grandchild will come over and immediately go to the box and say, “What can we make today?”

Finding Meaning in The Mundane

At the very moment we wake in the morning, human nature is establishing our perspective on the day ahead. It’s almost like a blinking light that goes off and sets us up for the hours moving forward. The humdrum of daily repetition can make it easy to slip into the lull of autopilot without taking control of where and what can be. But, if we are willing to give ourselves a gentle little shake, to become truly awake to the day’s possibilities, we can instead notice all the goodness hiding in plain sight.
