THE EASIEST KIDS’ CRAFT EVER FOR UNDER $1: SIMPLE ORIGAMI BOX

I try not to appear too exhausted when my toddler trio (ages 2, 4 and 5) come to me seeking mommy's love and attention, and wanting to do some sort of special activity, just the 4 of us.

Their little eyes and minds get so impressed watching mommy take a flat sheet of paper from her printer as I drag myself away from work tasks for a brief moment to also enjoy their always entertaining company. For days like this, I often turn to a quick and easy little origami craft which never ceases to amaze them; and once I have folded enough boxes for each of my littlest daughters, they happily take the boxes away leaving me with several quiet moments to answer a couple emails before I choose to forget work for the rest of day.

If you are looking for a quick, easy, no-cutting, no-mess, no-clean-up craft to do with young and old children, check this little origami box out.

ENJOY UP TO 80% OFF SELECT ITEMS ON YOUR NEXT AMAZON ORDER!

Hi there!

I am gonna make this email snappy - just thought to share some money savings with everyone today!

Here in the Cayman Islands where I call home every retailer is closed and online shopping is still not a "thing" here as yet for the local stores - so many of us are turning to Amazon despite the wait for our orders. Let's face it, online shopping is therapy right now and on this little island it is vital if we have to buy anything that cannot be found in the supermarkets.

You see, all businesses are closed due to Covid to stop the spread and keep us all safe - but you probably guessed that. As a family of 9 we are self-isolating at home and taking each day at a time.

As I prepare my family's order this morning and enjoy the benefits of numerous Amazon savings, I could not help but share some of these great deals with you! Grab a savings code or 2 and enjoy up to 80% off selected items on your next Amazon order!

20 GREAT CHILDREN’S BOOKS KIDS CAN ENJOY WHILE STUCK IN QUARANTINE

Good day to you!

How is everything going? Have you found any creative ways to keep track of the days? Haha - me either!

I have been getting some "me time" lately by waking up at 3am each day; the house is so calm and quiet because my 7 wild and wacky daughters are all peacefully in their beds asleep. Never thought I would become such a devoted morning person, but doing this has helped me keep my sanity and my businesses going with all the chaos that abounds!

Of course, I can look forward to hearing bedroom doors opening by 7am, that means I have to be ready to tackle a full day of meal preps, learning activities, nap times, nappy changes, teenage girl tantrums and more. When I want to restore some sort of calm I choose a session of reading with my 4 youngest (8, 5, 4 and 2!)

As we adjust to our "new normal"; millions of us around the world have had to "relearn" daily life in a sudden change of plans and events that none of us could have ever expected. And to add madness to mayhem we also have to ensure our children don't fall back a grade level academically while at home in our care. Based on the number of emails, messages and phone calls I get on a daily basis from a combined 30+ teachers between my  school-aged children - our children's schools are obviously in high anticipation that we return our children to school on par with our national curriculum and expected grade levels... no pressure there at all, right?. 

Honestly, there are some days where I just have to skip the fancy, overwhelming home-school schedule and spend an hour of reading excitedly to my little ones. Simply reading has proven to have its way of keeping my girls focused and academically stable during all this global madness as we await the day they can actually return to school.

If you are drowning under housework, home-school, working-from-home, meal prep, boredom and/or just trying to survive within your home's four walls with energetic kids everywhere - take a breather, read a few books, escape from the day's reality and spend some quality time. My girls and I have shared a short list of children's books we would recommend to you for your little ones and many of them are also free to download on kindle! 😉
