Guest Post: Children’s Blog – Creativity unleashed to the fullest

Here is a guest post about starting a Children's Blog.  I think I would consider doing this for my kids when they are older and can write/type.  I know on Blogger you can keep your blog private and I would keep my kids private!  Safety is very important!  

"It is said that the brain of a child is like a sponge with the capacity to absorb anything you throw
at it. Indeed, children are curious and are open to learning at this stage in their life. It is up to
parents and other elders to utilize this opportunity and provide them with the best educational as
well as knowledge seeking avenues.

Since we are in the age of the internet and a rapidly evolving world of information technology
as well as dissemination, exposing your children to the world of blogging at a young age would
be just right. A children’s blog can help your children put down their
thoughts and views in a structure manner. They would get into the habit of updating it on a
regular basis and would thus be more consistent with what they feel and wish to express.

Since the usage of the computer is now something that is not only a necessity and cannot be
avoided, exposing your children to the world of blogging would be a logical and acceptable step
to them. They can in the midst of all their communication and entertainment activities spare time
for this activity as well.

This idea of a children’s blog is a good one also from the perspective of enabling children to
express themselves clearly and being creative with their written ability. They will be able to get
into the habit of developing written communication skills and we all know how important that is
in both professional and personal life.

As a start, you can ask them to maintain a private journal since they may not be very comfortable
with starting one when they are very young. This will at least get them into the habit. Once
they cross 13 they can get into blogging and over time they will thank you for the wonderful
experience you have provided them."

Last week we tried out the fizzing sidewalk chalk- click here to read that review. This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun! She is my little model... she kept saying "take my picture mom." She is like her

Toddler Rainbow Craft for St. Patricks Day

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!
