10 Simple Ways to Bond With Your Child

 

Life is busy, and although we do so many things for our children every day, it’s important to take some time to bond with them outside the usual routine. Sure, we spend hours of our day with our children: in the car, swimming lessons, dance class, grocery shopping, at home during dinner and watching television. But, during these times are we actually bonding with our children? Or are we just in the same place at the same time? Nonchalantly asking our children, “how was school today?” is great but wouldn’t it be better to witness their progress, learning, and development first hand?

Home Ooey-Gooey Activities for Kids

 

I remember what it was like to be a kid with an endless supply of energy, a wild imagination, and the attraction to all things ooey and gooey. What a care-free time it was. I used to let my giant wad of slime drip off the corner of the kitchen table, as it slowly stretched toward the floor I’d imagine that it was hot lava! I’d have to put on my superhero cape and save the world from the spreading doom of hot lava. It’s amazing how far a child’s imagination can take them with one piece of goop. Which is why parents only need a few simple tricks hidden up their sleeves to keep their kids entertained at home.

Best Ways to Keep Kids Entertained at a Home Birthday Party

 

Hosting a kids birthday party at home is a great idea, especially if you’re looking for a more private venue that is not too crowded with four other birthday parties happening at the same time. My daughter is now 8 years old, so I’ve had my share of planning kids birthday parties and I’m not even close to done. I’ve had parties planned at adventure zones, trampoline centres, midway games with tokens, ticket, prizes, and more. These were all great, the kids had fun, but I found they interacted less with each other as they ran around aimlessly in such large centres. There was just too many people there celebrating birthdays, including the general public. When they brought out the cake, I felt like we needed to shout the happy birthday song just to be heard over the noise level. It felt more like a fun outing and less like a gathering for an actual birthday.

Turn Your Kid’s Birthday Party Story Into a Happy Chocolate Tale!

 

Is your child already starting to plan (or talk about) their next birthday party? Depending on your child’s age, you’ve probably had a few birthdays at typical spots like the bowling alley, the movies, or another play centre. Maybe for their next birthday, you can help your child think outside the box and plan something truly unique and memorable. I remember when I was a kid, almost right after I had a birthday party or attended a friend’s birthday party, I’d start shouting out ideas of where I wanted to have my next one. I always wanted to have my birthday party at a place that would excite my friends when I told them about it. It’s no big surprise to my close friends when I turned my love of birthday parties and chocolatey sweetness into a career as a chocolatier with Chocolate Tales!

A Kid’s Birthday is a Celebration of Moms

 

When it comes to planning a kid’s birthday party, there's no telling how far a Mom will go to make sure every detail of the party is perfect. A child’s birthday is special in two very different ways: For the child, it’s a day of cake, gifts, friends, and fun. For the mom, it’s a reminder of that very special day that they brought a new baby into the world and met them for the first time. So, it’s no wonder you’ll often see a mom jumping over hurdles or going above and beyond to make sure their child’s favourite TV show or movie character is on their cake or the balloons that coordinate perfectly with the decor. It’s a day to show their child just how much they are loved by giving them an unforgettable birthday party.
