Kid Activities to do when you just need 30 minutes to yourself!

Summer, a season I hold dear, brings with it countless opportunities for outdoor adventures and pure joy. However, working from home while having children here all day, well let's just say it's an experience that comes with its share of ups and downs. On the one hand, I cherish the quality time I get to spend with my little ones. On the other hand, I'm always on the lookout for engaging activities to keep everyone happily occupied!

While I appreciate the value of boredom for fostering creativity, there are moments when I need uninterrupted focus to make important calls or complete essential projects. To tackle this challenge, I came up with a brilliant solution – little workbooks for my children. I tested them out yesterday, and to my delight, they offered me a blissful hour and a half of tranquility. I couldn't keep this gem to myself; I had to share it with others facing similar situations – whether working from home or simply seeking a break during the bustling "witching hours" before dinner.

Inside these workbooks lies a precious daily gratitude sheet, a practice I believe is essential to instill in young minds. Starting this habit early imparts invaluable life lessons. At first, you might encounter seemingly trivial entries like "I am thankful for TV," but over time, the kids learn to appreciate and reflect on the little things that brighten their day. Witnessing this transformation is an immensely gratifying experience.

I encourage you to download this workbook and see if it grants you that precious extra 30 minutes of serenity. If it does, you can easily reprint it for the following week, making it an invaluable tool to have on hand whenever you need a moment of peace amid the hustle and bustle of daily life. These workbooks have it all – from fun math exercises to cool coloring sheets. And the daily gratitude sheet? It not only sneaks in a valuable lesson but also teaches kids to find beauty in being thankful for the little things.

I must say, my kids have fallen head over heels for these sheets. They loved them so much that they asked me to reprint them today so they could play school! 🏫🎨 So, join us in embracing this mix of summer fun and productivity at home! Let's make the most of this wonderful season with our little ones by our side. 🌞📚 #SummerAdventures #WorkFromHomeParenting #GratitudeInEveryday #KidApprovedActivities
