Hey Parents and Teachers if you have not heard of Shoulder Buddies you are missing out. This great tool can be used for enforcing good behaviors at home or in the classroom.
Shoulder Buddies are collectible friends that kids love to wear! But they're more than just cute... each Shoulder Buddies "Smarts" character teaches kids a special life lesson, from Friendship to Fire Safety. The Magical Coin lets kids wear Shoulder Buddies on their shirt, hat, hair and more! Kids can take Shoulder Buddies and their "Smarts" with them wherever they go!
The Shoulder Buddy Smarts come from a magical wishing star, and inside that star is the Land of Understand. Shoulder Buddies go to the "School of Smarts" so they can earn their Fluffles on top of their head to fly. Once they have learned their "Smarts" they fly down from the Land of Understand and look for a Buddy to journey with and share their "Smarts".
Just call us Shoulder Buddies from the Land of Understand,
Breezin' through the skies, looking to land.
Each one of us has a special "Smart,"
A wonderful message that comes from our heart.
We want to share our "Smarts" with you,
So you can reveal your "Smarts" too!
Take us along everywhere you go...
On your shoulders, hair and hats you know!
Collect us, trade us, and give us a home!
Let's journey together... wherever you roam!
The first thing my daughter did was ask to get the buddies out. So we immediately put them on her shoulder and she loved them. Putting the Shoulder Buddies on was very simple but if you need more information you can look at the attaching Shoulder Buddy web page. As a parent I was more interested in reading the book and finding more about each character. Our Characters were Biffle- Friendship Smarts, Breezee's- Frustration Smarts, and a Holiday one named Flurry- Giving Smarts. I really like how these Shoulder Buddies can be used as a reinforcement of positive behaviors. I think young children will learn positive behaviors and be excited to show them so they could wear the Buddy. :) The website has some fun games and you can create your own buddy by designing all the colors, naming, and describing the "smart."
This would make a fun Christmas gift for your little ones or a great gift to a teacher! :) :)

St. Patrick's day is March 17th so its approaching quickly. I have a few ideas on art and food projects that i want to do with the kiddos. Hopefully I will have enough time to complete them and share them with you. This was a super easy one for those little hands. I cut the stripes of colored paper but if you are working with a preschooler or school aged child then they can practice cutting. The two toddler boys here only had to glue the pieces on their piece of paper. EASY, but they enjoyed it! :) It sure has brightened my kitchen with them hanging on the fridge! :) I also talked more about the Promise God gave us with the rainbow since I know that history a whole lot better then the history of the Irish Holiday!
