Thankful for Creative Parenting

I have discovered Pinterest ( though I have found some fabulous craft ideas, ideas for class, and gifts to make for Christmas, I really did not need another website to visit frequently. I have been trying to only go there every few days or even just a couple times a week. This morning,I’m glad I went there. I saw the following idea. It is meant to be for birthdays, but in this week of Thanksgiving, I could see it being a great Thanksgiving activity as well. Speaking of Thanksgiving, check out the Kindermusik with Miss Christa and Friends fan page at Facebook for some great videos for the season. Some songs for your children to learn and sing, and some meditative, nice music just listening together as a family.

I just want to say again, though I say it often, I am thankful for all the families who allow me the privilege of working with your children, the friends I’ve made and the cool people I’ve met since commencing with this business seven years ago. You all rank at the top of my Thankful list (after my husband and children ;))

Here is the birthday idea – for Thanksgiving, I’m thinking you could pick just a couple of questions, ask everyone and begin a notebook from year to year. What a great family history this could be.

Starting at age 3, every year on their birthday you ask the same questions and see how their answers change over the years! Add a pic and make a book out of it. 20 questions* : answered by Morgan 1.
