Making Rock Candy – great summer project for kids
Have you ever made rock candy? I feel like we tried it as a class in elementary school with not great results, but we recently made some rock candy sticks. I feel like this is a good summer activity for kids because there's the whole making them part, which is an activity that takes up time, then there's the sciency part (watching the crystals form), and then obviously the big pay off: eating them. What's not to like? Maybe the waiting for a week? On second thought, *Bonus* virtue lesson: patien

The frustration free way to teach your child to ride a bike. Just 1 afternoon and they'll be riding--it's that easy! create a balance bike from a regular bike
Earlier in the summer I shared this tutorial on Paging Supermoms as a Tuesday tip. It’s so simple that you still have time to cross “learn to ride a bike” off the summer to-do list before summer is over! Riding a bike is a right of passage for kids, and teaching them how to ride falls on the parents. Be a SuperMom and teach your child to ride without any scraped knees! It’s easy, it’s fast, and it’s frustration free! Of course you’ll need a bike. You’ve seen those cool looking balance bikes, and instead of buying one, we’re going to convert a traditional bike into one. Just a regular old bike will do. It just needs to be small enough that they can touch flat footed while on it. Step 1: Remove the pedals. One pedal will be threaded backwards (so it doesn’t come unscrewed while riding). You’ll need a wrench to take them off. Step 2: Drop the<a class="more-link" href="http://thecraftingchicks.com/2013/07/how-to-ride-a-bike.html"> [Read More...] </a>

7 Ways to Stop Your Kid From Whining: - avoid get to that point if seeking attention - empathize & offer an option "lets add toy to your birthday list or save allowance" = delay gratification - replay it at a calm time "do you like mommys sour voice or sweet voice" - positive reinforcement "my ears love that voice / thanks for using normal voice" - don't ignore it, they'll outlast you - be playful: "here, pour your whine into this cup and bring me your normal voice." or whisper your answer back
