A mask should fit comfortably and allow for good vision. Making or modifying a mask to fit your child can be as easy as using an old pair of children’s sunglasses.
Use an old pair of children’s sunglasses, remove the lenses, match the opening for the eyes on the mask with the openings on the glasses, then glue the frames onto the inside of the mask.
The glasses will keep the mask in place and be easy to put on and off.
We wish a wonderful Mother’s Day to all the great moms that do so much for their children.

Ask your child what they think of when remembering their favorite birthday experiences. This will help you know what was most important to them and what might be worth repeating. It may have been a little thing that was the most meaningful tradition for them.
This can be any memory such as using a birthday plate, planning their party, a favorite activity, what they ate, how special they felt or some unique memory of their special day. You may be surprised to discover what they remember. What they recall may not be the same as your memories, yet it will be what your child found to be important for them.
Who would have known, this child loved the experience of opening her bedroom door and discovering streamers.
The parent simply taped the colorful crepe paper streamers to the top of the door frame, little did the parents know what a hit it would make! Leaving the streamers up for the day is fun for all to see.
What is your child’s special memory on their birthday?

A great project for this time of year. Here is a sample video from our upcoming eBook. A napkin folding project.
Waiting for a birthday party or a holiday event? We have an idea for assisting your child in understanding the, how many days? question. The sense of days and time can be better understood using visual clues.
Make a countdown timeline using some recycled materials, bubble packing material, a strip of heavy paper, glue, and a colored pen.
Start with a long strip of paper, write the numbers until the big day, glue a strip of the bubbles onto a sheet of paper. Rubber cement works, adult supervision is suggested. Your child will have a visual way to understand how many days.
Pop one bubble each day until the event occurs!
