Traveling is a great time to create special family memories and can provide some wonderful learning opportunities. But it can still be challenging when you are stuck in a car or plane for hours. Here is a list of our favorite games and activities for traveling.
It is easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of life and forget that sometimes our children feel left behind. When you take the important step of investing in your relationship with them, they are more likely to feel heard and open up about what is going on in their lives. Try these practical suggestions to help your children feel heard and increase your influence on their lives.
We’ve all been there. You are in the car for a trip or waiting in line at the grocery store or doctor’s appointment. I’m normally the mom who allows her children to find something to entertain themselves, but there are times when it’s difficult even for adults to be patient waiting in a confined space. Turn these times of waiting into learning opportunities with these fun math games to play in the car (or plane or train or line). They require no supplies and can be adapted for all ages. We’ve enjoyed them for years and have been surprised at the times our children have stumped us.
