I am always looking for easy for me, hands-on activities for kids. Here’s a quick list of one for every week of the year!
At the beginning of this year, I committed to completing an easy for me, hands-on activity with my youngest son every week.
It’s now been 52 weeks since I made that commitment.
To be honest, going into it, I was a little apprehensive. I wasn’t sure I could pull it off. I thought I might give up, get tired, and watch TV instead.
If it wasn’t for you, and the accountability I felt in writing about our activities here each week, I am confident I wouldn’t have made it past February.
But, with the exception of three random weeks of illness and a bit of total mom is done-ness, we did it.
As a small token of my gratitude, I have pulled together here the entire year’s activities, plus three more. Hopefully, this will serve as an easy reference and place to visit when you are looking for hands-on learning options, that you know are doable (not too crafty or expensive).
Pulling together these posts was good for me too. It gave me a more global perspective on our days.
I can easily see how much time and attention we give to anxiety and sensory issues.
I learned that Harry Potter is an even bigger part of our learning than I imagined.
The best part? It showed me how much we really accomplished this year.
