Where to find some great kids craft materials

Hi There.....Are you in lockdown? Do you have kids?

I am not gonna talk to you about this lockdown situation.....I think people already are informed enough about that through messages from their governments or other blog posts 😵

I was thinking more practical..... In terms of creativity for your children..... Did you know that arts and crafts help to support their fine gross motor skills and things like hand and eye coordination? 

You did? Great..... If not you know now 😁

If you put your kids in front of the screen all day..... Be it television or Tablet..... They will not have the chance to develop more hand and finger strength..... Learning and practicing how to use scissors and cutting, modeling clay, painting and coloring can help them with this.

Creative activities also help them to think differently..... It will improve their imagination and concentration..... Your kids will have to figure out their own solutions to the problem at hand  😊

I thought that this could be the perfect time to bond with your kid without them having the pressure of doing it right..... Because in creativity there is no right or wrong..... Just let your child's imagination lead the way 😎 

Maybe I am a bit subjective..... I am a creative soul and can only recommend it from my own point of view..... Creativity has helped me get through some very bad times..... Maybe it can help your kids in the same way to get through these hard times 😚

I found a great quote from Isabel Allende for you 

"We all have an unsuspected reserve of strength inside that emerges when life puts us to the test"

Those were the best 3 days of my life

Hi There.....Do you know the song.....Those were the days from Mary Hopkin?
I just love that song.....Don't you.....If you don't know the song you definitely have to look it up and listen to it 😊
That's actually what this blog post is all about.....So today I am gonna tell you about the best 3 days of my life 😀
I could use a couple more than 3 days because as some of you know I am already ancient.....That means that I have had so many great days already.....Bad ones too of course but that could be an inspiration for another blog.....Or not 😁
One day I think is one of the best days of my life was when I got married to my hubby......It has been almost 34 years now.....Ages I know some of you here haven't even been on earth that long.
Then there was the birth of my daughter in 1987 and my son in 1989.....And then last but not least 4 years ago I got my first and only granddaughter.
But although they all qualify very much as the best days of my life they are not the days I am gonna tell you about 😀
I actually wanted to tell you about 3 days at the end of September last year. I, my hubby, my daughter, son in law and granddaughter all went on a vacation together at Center Parcs 'Eemhof'.....And I can say those were one of the best 3 days of my life.
We had been there the year before and on the last day.....I don't know why but I absolutely wanted to take part in the bingo game.....And I did win a couple of things.....Toys, kitchen utensils, and a discount of 250 € provided we book again in the same park.....It was as if I knew that I was gonna win that cheque.....Although I am usually not the lucky one 😋
So we invited both our kids.....Our daughter and son in law were very happy to oblige but my son regrettably couldn't come with us on the planned date.....I so would have wanted him to be able to.....Nevertheless, I did look forward to spending more time with my granddaughter 😀
Center Parcs is one of the best when it comes to Waterparks.....So that is the first thing we went to. At that time my granddaughter was a bit more than 3 years old but already an avid lover of swimming. That's actually not really a surprise because both her dad and mom were much into swimming.....As am I and my husband 😁
Our morning started with breakfast and after that, we fed the ducks on the river behind our cottage.....Our granddaughter absolutely wanted to do that too of course but it was pretty hard for her to throw that far still.
Then we went out for a walk and to the petting zoo. It was a pretty large one and there were lots of animals.....A donkey, goats, chickens, rabbits, pigs,...
And there was a large tractor in the back too.....You can already guess that my granddaughter was keen on sitting on it 🤗
Later on, we went to the indoor playground to wait until the show started with the kids dancing afterward. There was also some kind of fairytale-like background with a throne in front of it for people to take a picture.....And so we did 😁
The next day we went for another swim and some shopping afterward.....And it was evening before we knew it and therefore time to go home again. But it was a magical time.....First time ever together with my daughter, son in law and granddaughter.....But definitely not the last time since we all got along perfect 😀
Hope you like my blog post.....Until next time.....Have a great day
