Why you should write letters back and forth with your son



My son is 10 years old and we have a journal that we have been writing back and forth in for several years.   We have some large gaps in between some entries but that makes it more special when we get it out again and reread some of the topics.   I also love to see the improvement in his writing.   We talk about all kinds of things and sometimes he doesn't have much to say but he does enjoy reading the encouragement I write for him.   I really see this journal as something he will take when he leaves our household.   I see it being a treasure when I pass away some day too... I guess because I lost my mom when I was 18 years old I think about things like that more.  

So my favorite reasons to journal back and forth:
1. open the door for good communication
2. My son asks questions more
3. I see his growth on pages
4. I love to reminisce about the past with him
5. He loves the encouragement
6. He feels the love
7. I feel the love

So don't wait any longer start a journal back and forth and help increase your communication with your son!

Liquid Chalk spray! Chalk Idea #7

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!
