They also love to browse through the links found on my weekend link party. Today, they found a paper plate turkey activity from my link party and went to work, making about 5 turkeys!
When I blog, I usually stay up late one night a week working on my posts, and pre-scheduling them to publish throughout the week. I wake up early to answer emails, edit pictures, and other various tasks. I try really hard not to let my blog consume me during the regular hours and routines of the day. But there are times that I pop online during the daytime, and like everything else, I try to find a way to include my kids.
One of their favorite things to do is browse pinterest with me. We have found several fun activities and recipes to try together via some fun pins.
Another thing we do, is to let them sit on my lap whenever they want if I’m using the computer. I want them to be able to see what I’m doing and ask questions. Sometimes, I’ll ask them the questions! I have them identify letters on the keyboard or shapes and colors on the monitor.
There are so many ways to involve children in your every day routines. Sometimes it takes a little thinking outside of the box to realize that it doesn’t have to be hard or unnatural. My motto is that my kids can do practically anything I can do, sometimes on a smaller scale. There is nothing more important to me that shaping their precious minds and teaching them good habits.
What are some ways you balance computer time, chores, errands, etc. while involving your children?
Once upon a time…
I started a blog. This is a tale of my projects, goals, and dreams. Thank you for taking a moment to stop by. I hope you have a beautiful day.
