We used to live in South Africa where Christmas is associated with hot sun, swim and barbeque. We always thought snowmen and reindeer were quite strange Christmas ideas!

But now we live in Switzerland and we love to embrace the snow and winter holiday ideas. And, therefore we share our Christmas snowman cards and three more Christmas tree cards made for our South African families!

Snowman Christmas Cards

Cute Christmas card ideas with crafts for kids. Do your own homemade Christmas card this year. See how now! #christmascardideas #christmascards #crafts for kids #homemadecards #christmasideas

This DIY card is a perfect Christmas craft project for the kids. Depending on their age, you can help them cut the various pieces and then let them put everything together by themselves. Or, when they are old enough, let them do the cutting as well.

What you need

The best part is, you probably have most of the materials you need at home already. And, if you need some of the less common materials at an affordable price, just click the item in the list below to view options.

To help you source only the best quality products, I will recommend one product with each card. These recommended products I use myself and cannot imagine crafting without! And, I am sure you will love them just as much as me!

Hope this will help you source the best products to create your own Christmas cards.

Materials Christmas card ideas with crafts for kids. Do your own homemade Christmas card this year. See how now! #christmascardideas #christmascards #crafts for kids #homemadecards #christmasideas

My Product Recommendation Googly Eyes

This Christmas card only came alive after we added the googly plastic eyes! Yes, you can draw the eyes or add stickers. But, like with many other craft projects, the plastic eyes added another dimension and made the snowman card so much more special. Give it a try!

I always buy them in big amounts and in different sizes at a very affordable price, so we have them at hand for any project we are doing. You will enjoy having them at hand to create even more awesome art pieces.

Creating your Snowman

Fold white cardstock in half. You can use any size but standard A4 works well. Draw three circles from top to bottom, small to big, all touching sides. You can draw the circles by hand, trace from a round object or print them.

The next step is to cut around your circles’ outline. Make sure to leave the top part attached on the fold. See picture arrow below.  Don’t cut through, otherwise, you will have two snowmen instead of an opening card!

Dressing and Decorating your Snowman

The suggestions below will guide you creating a beautiful card but do not be scared to add your own personal touches. And, give the kids free reign.

Remember No Rules!

Christmas Snowman Arms

Cut two arms with fingers from your textured stock. Glue to the back of your card, just above the middle of the second circle. Try them in different positions and at different angles for extra fun.

Christmas Snowman Hat

Design Christmas card ideas with crafts for kids. Do your own homemade Christmas card this year. See how now! #christmascardideas #christmascards #crafts for kids #homemadecards #christmasideasYou can either cut the shape of a hat freehand or draw one with a pencil on the back of your colored stock of choice and then cut out.

Use your glue stick to attach the hat to the front of your snowman.

Place the hats on your cards at different angles to create cute variation.

Decorate your hat with feathers, embellishments, flowers or any decoration you prefer.

Top Tip

I always use a good quality pencil in a similar color to the stock card to add shadow and accentuate curves and lines. You will be amazed at the difference this small action makes to your final product.

Christmas Snowman Face

  • Stick two googly eyes on the face.
  • Use an orange stock card to cut a nose in a carrot shape and stick to the middle of the face. Highlight with an orange pencil.
  • Optional: use a red pencil to draw a little smiley mouth. My kids said that a Christmas snowman has to be friendly and that’s why we drew the smileys!

Christmas Snowman Buttons and Scarf

No snowman is complete without a scarf and buttons!

  • tie a short piece of colored ribbon around the neck
  • add two or more fun buttons to the body.

Add a Christmas Message

Your Christmas Snowman card is now complete. Add a personal message inside and impress friend and family with your own DIY card.

This is another great card the kids can do by themselves.

What you need

Christmas card ideas for kids. Great craft the kids can do for Christmas. Check it out now. #christmasideas #christmascard #christmascrafts #kidscrafts #carddiy

  • colored stock card
  • strips of colored paper
    • various colors, cut in half to one cm width strips of various lengths ranging from 2 to 7 cm
    • we used gummed paper to make it even easier but standard paper and a glue stick gives the same effect
  • stickers and embellishments
  • card stock

My Product Recommendation Gummed Paper

I love gummed paper! We use it very often. For little hands, it is much easier to wet the back and stick, than to work with a glue stick. The kids also enjoy working with it. Few things better than getting to wet paper with a finger! And, it comes in all different colors and sizes. This is our favorite one. Check it out!

Creating your Christmas Tree card

Cut and fold cardstock to create a card with a size of your choice. The kids simply arranged the strips from bottom to top in decreasing size order to create a tree.

Place a wider piece at the bottom to create a bottom for your tree. Then stick your stickers and embellishments onto the tree. We also added a colored stick to the top of the bottom piece to add extra dimension.

Complete with a shiny star sticker at the top.

My Product Recommendation  Fine Liner Pens

The first thing I reach for when we start making is cards is my fine liner pens. You will love drawing with these pens! They are great to accentuate fine lines and add delicate touches. You should try them in all colors and see why I use them all the time.

Modern Christmas card ideas.. Beautiful Christmas DIY. Check it out now. #christmasideas #christmascard #christmascrafts #kidscrafts #carddiyFor these cards, I chose to use only silver and turquoise – my favorite color!

But you can make a similar card in rainbow colors, or any color of your choice, like this one, with red accents.

*Original inspiration: here

Create your modern Christmas Tree Card

Use your thin black pen to draw the Christmas tree free hand and embellish with gems and stars. As many or as little as you want! With the colored pencil, I added small accent colors in a circular shape on the line.

Top Tip

Lightly pencil draw a triangle where you want your tree to be. Then do the doodle in the triangle to ensure a proper tree shape. I recommend you try doodle shape on a piece of paper before attempting it on your card.

The first one or two I drew, didn’t quite resemble a tree …

Unicorn Birthday Party – Our Best Party Ideas

A Unicorn Birthday Party for My Little Girl

For her sixth birthday my daughter wanted a unicorn birthday party. Not surprising as most little girls adore unicorns and rainbows.

And of course, this is a party idea every mom love to pursue … Who doesn’t believe in unicorn magic, right?Unicorn Birthday Party with unicorn costume, birthday invitation, treats, unicorn cake, birthday games and birthday favors. #unicornparty #birthdayparty #birthdayfavors #unicorncake #pinata

Unicorn Birthday Party Invitations

Unicorn Birthday Party Invitations with unicorn costume, birthday invitation, treats, unicorn cake, birthday games and birthday favors. #unicornparty #birthdayparty #birthdayfavors #unicorncake #pinataLike any party, we started the party arrangements by printing invitations. I decided to keep it simple, and created a powerpoint slide with rainbow, unicorn, and balloons. Then, simply added all the what and when details.

We printed the invitations out and stuck the printed image on a beautiful cardstock. Inside an envelope, it went and ready for hand out. It doesn’t get any simpler than that!

We decorated a dreamy table with soft pink, blues and greens, and a unicorn re-usable tablecloth. My daughter chose these pretty unicorn plates and napkins.

If you want to add some more decorations, check out this beautiful free printable banner. 

Unicorn Birthday Party Outfit

No party is without dressing up and that’s why we made some rainbow unicorn horns for every guest!

Costume, Unicorn Birthday Party with unicorn costume, birthday invitation, treats, unicorn cake, birthday games and birthday favors. #unicornparty #birthdayparty #birthdayfavors #unicorncake #pinataWe easily created the unicorn horns with rolled felt, covered in rainbow ribbon and attaching an elastic. We made a horn for each friend and they sure love wearing them. I added a bit more ribbon to the horn for our guest of honor!

Costume, Unicorn Birthday Party with unicorn costume, birthday invitation, treats, unicorn cake, birthday games and birthday favors. #unicornparty #birthdayparty #birthdayfavors #unicorncake #pinataOther than the making the horns I sew a colorful tutu for my daughter and she wore it with a pretty unicorn t-shirt. Not up for sewing a tutu, I also love these personalized tutu and rainbow tutu skirts.

No princess outfit is however complete without a crown. So we added some sparkly beads to a felt crown and made sure she can wear it together with the unicorn horn.

Not up to making your own, check out this beautiful unicorn headband.

Unicorn Birthday Party Cake

Baking the cake is always one of my favorite parts of arranging a party. I love working with fondant icing and creating this coach with a princess and a unicorn was lots of fun.

Unicorn Birthday Party Treats

We made little unicorn faces from marshmallows and it was a super treat. You can find a step by step tutorial on how to make similar unicorn treats from The decorated cookie.

Unicorn treats for Birthday Party with unicorn costume, birthday invitation, treats, unicorn cake, birthday games and birthday favors. #unicornparty #birthdayparty #birthdayfavors #unicorncake #pinata

I simply added a white marshmallow to a straw and used a food pen to create eyes. The horn, ears, and stars were made from fondant icing and stuck onto the marshmallow using a little sugar paste.

So easy and yet so cute! This is one of my favorite suppliers of soft, fresh fondant icing.

Unicorn cupcakes for Birthday Party with unicorn costume, birthday invitation, treats, unicorn cake, birthday games and birthday favors. #unicornparty #birthdayparty #birthdayfavors #unicorncake #pinata

We baked some chocolate cupcakes with girly pink frosting, and, topped them with fondant flowers and hearts for sparkle magic. Place them in a pretty cupcake wrapper and they are ready to be devoured. This cupcake kit makes life very easy!

A secret tip to transform a standard cupcake into an awesome cupcake …

Unicorn Birthday Party Pinata

I made the first pinata 2 years ago, and since then it is the first thing my kids ask for when we plan their birthdays. Having a pinata not only adds to your party decorations but also creates another activity and allows the kids to play with the toys and take it home. Unicorn Birthday Party with unicorn costume, birthday invitation, treats, unicorn cake, birthday games and birthday favors. #unicornparty #birthdayparty #birthdayfavors #unicorncake #pinata We always fill the pinata not only with sweets but also with a lot of small toys as I am not a fan of having too many sweets around … Just make sure the toys you add won’t break when falling on the ground.

Unicorn Birthday Party Activities

Doing a fun activity is always a big part of our parties. Giving the kids a chance to create something to remind them of the awesome party they had.  For the unicorn birthday party, we decided to paint unicorn tote bags and make dream catchers.

I found these unicorn tote bags at a local store and the kids used acrylic paint to color them. You can easily buy or sew plain tote bags and trace unicorn pictures on them to create the same thing.

For the dream catcher, I cut the hoof shape from a paper plate, added a string at the top and punched holes at the bottom. The girls could then decorate their own with beads, crystals, ribbons, shapes, and feathers.

Unicorn Birthday Party Favors and Thank You Cards

The best part of any party is always leaving the kids with a little surprise to take home and remember the magic. Each little princess received a string bag, unicorn plush toy and a unicorn crayon. They sure loved it! Depending on your budget, you can make the party favors as big or small as you want.

Here are a couple of affordable options for a unicorn plush toy

Unicorn Birthday Party Games

We played a lot of unicorn party games including Pass a Parcel and Musical Statues. And, who doesn`t love the old – pin a tail – game? And the best part of having a unicorn party, the old time favorite becomes  – pin a rainbow horn! So much more magical!

Unicorn games for Birthday Party with unicorn costume, birthday invitation, treats, unicorn cake, birthday games and birthday favors. #unicornparty #birthdayparty #birthdayfavors #unicorncake #pinata

I simply cut rainbow unicorn horn shapes, drew a unicorn on a large poster and gave it some color. We stuck it on the wall and the kids were blindfolded trying to pin the horn in the perfect position. Loads of fun!

Gifts for little Unicorn Lover

I had so much fun looking for the perfect gift for my daughter and would love to share some of the most beautiful unicorn things I found

The Result: A Happy Daughter

We created an awesome unicorn birthday party and made everything ourselves. Arranging and preparing all the different items do take time. But, it also makes it so much more special and memorable.

My best Birthday Party Tip

Ask a friend to take as many pictures as possible. You will be too busy running around and organizing things. And, your daughter will be too busy having fun to take everything in.

There are few things as precious as sharing the awesome moments afterward by looking at photos together. You will both get to relive the magic again and again!

Time to look at those Top 25 Healthy Lifestyle Tips backed by Science

1.  Follow a low-carb eating plan including lots of low carb veg, good protein and good fats.
3. Handle cravings better by allowing yourself a cheat day.
  • We all crave sugar and carbs sometimes. And, that is ok! Don`t be discouraged by it.
  • When you crave carbs, simply include a good carb cheat day into your weekly planner and have the carb cheat meal on this day.
  • Keep it controlled and choose better carbs.
  • Then, the cheat day will not affect your weight or health.
  • In fact, it will aid a positive mindset as continuous unmet cravings will merely make you depressed!
  • However, if you want some solid reasons why carb cheating is not the best option, read this.
4. Try out this superfood if you want to feel more relaxed, energized and healthy
If there is only one tip you choose to try, consider this one first!

You will be astonished how relaxed and energized you will feel within a day or two! I use it every single day and the results are amazing. I know you will love it just as much as I do. Be daring and give it a try.

5. Track your progress to stay motivated.
  • There are two schools of thinking here. Some say way yourself every day to stay motivated.
  • Others say weigh yourself only once a week and rather use measurements and or clothes to assess your weight loss.
  • This helps avoid demotivation from slight daily weight differences that occur due to water retention and hormonal influences.
  • I definitely belong to the latter group of thinking.
  • But either way, have a way to track your success.
6. Avoid fruits with high carb and high sugar content like grapes, cherries and figshealthy lifestyle #superfoods #healthylifestyle #detox
  • Take the healthy lifestyle challenge and get to know exactly which fruits you should limit in your meals
  • Always opt for low carb and low sugar fruits like watermelon, cantaloupe and berries.
7. When shopping for food, make it a habit to quickly check food labels.
  • Especially for the amount of sugar and carbs included.
  • To know if a product has too much sugar, just remember 4 grams of sugar equals 1 teaspoon of sugar …. Really want to buy that soft drink with 4 teaspoons of sugar …
  • Keep in mind that a healthy, active lifestyle should include about 50 grams of carbs per day. In other words, one chocolate bar that has on average 70 grams of carbs already exceeds your daily limit. So keep an eye on those labels.
8. Don`t fall into the trap of so-called low-carb products without making sure it is the correct one.
  • I couldn`t believe my eyes in the shop the other day. I wanted to buy almond milk, and the carb content of the different brands ranged per 100 ml from 0.5g to 75g! Unbelievable!
  • No use trying to limit carbs and then unknowingly adding a high-carb product to your meals.
9. Eat your last meal around seven to half past seven at night.
  • If you go to bed at ten, your body will have enough time to digest the meal.
10. To boost metabolism and strengthen your immune system drink a cup of ginger tea after dinner.
  • Ginger improves blood sugar
  • And has antioxidant benefits
  • The best way to prepare this tea is to add some freshly sliced ginger, water, and a tea bag and simmer for 10 minutes.
  • I recommend using rooibos tea, as it has no caffeine to interfere with your sleep.
11. Replace your morning coffee and milk with cinnamon tea
  • Simply prepare your favorite tea and add half a teaspoon of ground cinnamon or
  • Simmer teabag in water for 10 minutes with an added cinnamon stick.
  • For an extra metabolism boost in the morning try my bulletproof coffee.

bulltetproof cofee as part of a healthy lifestyle #healthylifestyle #bulletproofcoffee #metabolismboost

12. Eat slowly, without any interference
  • Avoid distraction from the TV and your phone and focus on your meal.
13. Try to exercise at least 3 times a week
  • Regular exercise improves blood pressure and control sugar levels.
  • It does not need to involve going to the gym.
  • It can be as easy as going for a 30-minute walk, or
  • Playing football with the kids
  • Cycling or swimming
  • Aim to take 5 – 10K steps daily
14. Complete a detoxification prior to making big diet and lifestyle changes
  • That way you will be energized and healthier to help your family do the same.
  • Claim your 7 day detox plan, with free resources to help you complete the body cleanse successfully below.

7 day detox plan to a happy and healthy you. Healthy Lifestyle tips. #healthylifestyle #detox #cleaneating #healthylifestyletips #healthyfamily

15. It is recommended you do a detoxification 2 to 4 times a year.
  • By grabbing your 7 day detox resources you will have everything you need to do a detox successfully. You can use the resources continuously for every detox you want to do now and in the future.
16. Get enough sleep
17. Drink more water to increase your weight loss
  • Minimum daily water intake is 8 glasses of water.
  • Try to drink one glass of water half an hour before every meal to help you eat less and burn almost 100 more calories.
18. It is best to eat 3 meals per day
  • You can add another one when you are always hungry in the afternoon or
  • Add a low carb snack in the afternoon between meals.
  • Avoid skipping meals, unless you are doing an intermittent fast.
19. Beware of high sugar content in fruit juices and soft drinks.
  • It is best to avoid these all together and
  • Rather make your own fresh juices or smoothies, knowing exactly what it contains.
20. Have a high protein breakfastlow carb breakfast as part of a healthy lifestyle #lowcarbbreakfast #healthylifestyle #detox
  • This will help control cravings throughout the day.
  • Join the 7 Day Detox plan to get a copy of my favorite low carb, high protein breakfast recipes.
21. Eat whole food, not processed food
  • Resist the urge to buy ready-made sauces and canned food
  • When you eat whole food and prepare all meals from scratch you know exactly what it contains
  • No preservatives and hidden carbs or sugar
22. If weight loss is your main goal, or you just want to save some time preparing meals, replace one meal a day with a detoxifying smoothie.
  • This is a great way to cleanse your body and kickstart your metabolism.detox smoothie for a healthy lifestyle #smoothie #healthylifestyle #detox
  • Always opt for a fresh homemade detoxifying smoothie including greens, natural super foods like berries, green tea powder and chia seeds.
  • Best to stay away from supplements, and unnatural additives.
  • The only boost your digestive system needs is a healthy unprocessed mix of low carb veg, fruit, protein and good fats.
  • For an additional anti-oxidant boost, add matcha tea powder to your smoothies.
23. Include superfoods to at least one meal a day

  • When you are stressed, tired and miserable, so is your family…
  • With that in mind, take action today, be awesome and do the 7 day detox.

In our house we have an official opinion rule stating:

As long as your opinion is backed by research, experience or a gut feeling you are allowed to share it!

Therefore, all opinions are welcome and considered. And, yes every girl needs to learn to trust her gut feeling or sixth sense. This is a skill that comes in very handy the day she becomes a mother.

“The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant. We have created a society that honors the servant and has forgotten the gift.”  -Albert Einstein

Research has proven thacognitive function changes during pregnancy to help moms connect with their babies. These changes strengthen a mom’s ability to intuitively know what their baby needs.

In other words, trust your gut feeling! You can read more about unlocking the power of your intuition here.

Number 3 Value a Daughter

How to stand up for herself 

Yes, Fathers should teach their daughters a couple of solid self-defense moves. This is part of a solid father daughter relationship and might just save her from an unwanted situation one day…

But, it is not only important for dads to share physical defense strategies, also emotional ones.

Give your daughter a lot of compliments and teach her to handle critique. These are vital social skills she needs to learn from early on. Tease her, pull her ponytail and tell her how cute she looks in a new outfit.

These interactions will help her handle similar situations later on. Dealing with comments and compliments will be part of her everyday life growing up.

Being used to good comments, and therefore able to distinguish them from inappropriate ones, will ease her school life tremendously.

Teaching your daughter to stand up for herself is part of being a Power Parent! And, an important value a daughter must learn from her father.

Teaching a daughter self-confidence starts with her father. If she does not trust her parents to believe in her, she will find it very difficult believing in herself.

A lot of teenage girls struggle with the acceptance of their own looks and being. Parents, and especially fathers who take an active role in promoting self-confidence from a young age, limits this problem.

Praise your child’s efforts, comment on their talents and trust in their abilities.

By doing this you will help your kids to believe in themselves and grow up to be confident and successful young adults.

I collated the various concerns into groups for kids- and parent-related worries. And where is the fun of reviewing lists if I can’t organize them into awesome acronyms! So here goes …

There are many worries we share concerning our kid’s behavior. Across various surveys, the parenting challenges voted most worrying here were sibling rivalry, public tantrums, bad language use and bullying.

Siblings fight. Period. This holds true in most families and there is no evidence to prove that it will soon change. But if we worry about our kids fighting and being in constant competition AND it is not about to change soon, then what?

We learn to handle it! We discover ways to be power parents armored with the tools and know-how of handling difficult family relationships.

Sure as the fact that siblings will rival, is the occurrence of public tantrums. At some point or another, kids will test out their tantrum skills. Much to the embarrassment and amazement of parents.

Again a good parent does not need to know how to avoid tantrums, however, they need the know-how to correctly handle it. Here are some great tips on taking back control during tantrum tirades.

Bad Language

Kids repeat things they hear. When babies start to talk, this is a great skill. Hearing them say mommy or daddy for the first time after you repeated it non-stop for days, is beyond special. A magic moment we all treasure!

However, hearing them repeat one of your swear words at the church group is not that special… The majority of kids using bad language heard it first at home and started to repeat it.

Whether parents at this point continue to use bad language or not does not have much of an impact on your kids’ future language use.

Why? Because they already believe that it is appropriate to use bad words since their role models, i.e. their parents, use it. And, secondly, they continue to hear it outside the home. So it has to be okay, right? This, in their minds, proves that bad language is acceptable. Oops… hearing your two-year-old use a swear word is all of a sudden not that cute anymore…

Bullying.

Wow, where do I even begin with this difficult topic? Bullying is such a relevant and common challenge for us as parents that I can not possibly discuss the solutions in short here. It deserves a lot of thought, research and action plans, to teach parents to handle it effectively.

To empower your kids be sure to check this out! Little girls can be mean …

Meal times are a big headache for many parents at many a time. Kids don’t want to eat this, they don’t want to eat that. Their favorite food today is avoided by all means tomorrow.

Fruits and vegetables grow on foreign planets and are definitely not suitable for human child consumption…

I can’t possibly eat anything more, Mommy… this, after eating two bites from their plate. Annoying when your 5-year old says this. Extremely worrying when your teenage girl makes this statement

Here is how to know when teenager eating preferences need your immediate attention and how to ensure healthy eating habits.

These are the top daily parent concerns we all have to deal with. #parenting #bestparentingtips #parentworries #parentingchallenges #worriedparentSleeping habits

Getting to the stage where kids stay in their beds at night and sleep through is tricky. It usually tests our patience and willpower.

There are many different recommendations on how to get this right. But how do I know which one will work for me?

This is how – You try them all out until you find the one that works for you!

Every parent and every child is different and just because one parent firmly believes in the efficacy of a certain sleeping strategy for their child, does not mean it is going to work for you.

As parents, we need to know from day one that it is okay to do whatever is working for you. Withing reasonable limits off course …

Never judge other parents for making things work in their way. Just because their 3-year-old still sleeps in the bed with them, or their 5-year-old has to drink chocolate milk every night to sleep, does not mean they are bad parents.

They are simply doing whatever they have to, to survive parenthood. And that’s okay!

We all know what the right and the wrong way of doing things are but sometimes we just need to break the rules and get some sleep!

You can check out these great posts for tips on sleep training for your baby and secrets to help kids sleep on their own.

The strategy in this book empowered me as a mommy and ensured we all got enough sleep!

It’s a number 1 best seller for a reason …

Getting everyone out of bed and ready for the day surely proves difficult from time to time. The best to way handle this, is to make sure the kids get enough hours of quality sleep.

Going to bed early is one of the most effective ways of ensuring a smooth morning routine. And this also holds true for parents. Get enough sleep, rise a bit earlier in the morning. And, be patient and kind in the process of getting everyone out the house.

You can find great morning routine hacks and tips here.

During a survey of more than 2,000 parents, the majority were worried whether they will be able to afford things their kids need. And the simple answer, applicable to most of us, is NO!

You can not possibly afford everything your kids needs or wants. And, you know what – that is perfectly fine!

You don’t need to buy kids all they need or want. Often it is very easy to make different plans to provide necessities and definitely luxuries. Be creative. Create games with everyday household items. Transform old clothes into fashionable new ones.

When you do spend money on toys, make sure they are educational and appropriate for your kids’ developmental stage.

The Magic of Creating New Things from the Old

Your daughter probably loves having a new handbag just as much as mine does. But why don’t you try sewing it from your old jeans rather than spending a lot of money on a new one? Add her initial or favorite shape on it, and she’ll think you are the best parent ever!

How is that for dealing with your parenting challenges like a rockstar!

This is the kind of attitude you need to adopt to provide kids with everything they need and want, without breaking the bank. You will be amazed at the value of creating a mission with your kids.

For example, make Halloween costumes together. Not only will you save money, but you will also have lots of fun together. Have the kids volunteer ideas and help with painting and creating.

This is a sure power parent way of providing kids with everything they need AND want!

Parents also listed, as one of the biggest parenting challenges, their inability to know the answers to all the questions their kids have. But you know what, you do not need to have all the answers. No parent does!

Luckily we live in an era where information is freely available. The internet provides us with invaluable parenting help and tips.

Yes, you might not have the answer right away, but research a topic and revive a discussion that previously made you uncomfortable. Just remember to choose good sources when looking for answers. Wikipedia should never be valued as an evidence-based resource …

So choose your resources wisely! And, remember your treating physician, nurse and psychologist are always available to lead you in the right direction when they can’t help.

Sleep deprivation is one of the biggest motives for sometimes losing our spirit. There is a reason why it is used as a punishment strategy by the military…

No human can cope with too little sleep. Not even you …

As we can not change the fact that from time to time parenthood results in sleep deprivation, we can surely have strategies to limit the negative results thereof.

Go to bed earlier. Use the 4-7-8 breathing technique to improve the quality of your sleep. Practice yoga and meditation every day to relax during the day.

You can use these awesome mommy strategies to find 5 minutes in a day to do this.

Parenthood is unfortunately not the only stressor in our lives. We have to deal with a lot of stress related to work, family and more.

Now, let’s discuss each of the 5 power parent strategies and discover ways to implement them effectively in our everyday lives.

Power Parent Strategy 1

become a power parent today with these 5 simple strategies. #powerparent #parentingtips #bestparenting

To share is to make joint use of something, or to partake in contributing to something, by a number of people. Whereas, Power is the striking ability to do or act.

Therefore, parenting power share can be defined as the marked ability to partake in daily activities, with decisive contribution from both parents and children.

In our day-to-day lives, sharing power with our kids will results in them actively partaking in happenings and decisions.

By allowing kids to make their own decisions from a young age on, they learn to be decisive and grow confident in their choices.

Of course, along with actions come responsibilities.  A lesson they need to learn early on.

By allowing power-sharing, power parents support their kids in acquiring the ability to be accountable for their actions.

For example, providing the opportunity to your kids to decide what they want to wear. Or, how they want to spend their pocket money.

It teaches independence.

They will learn that refusing to wear rain boots on a rainy day, results in icky, wet feet.

This discomfort will be way more effective in convincing them to make a better decision on the next rainy day.

Way more so than you yelling at them to not go out without wearing their rain boots …

Teaching kids by means of consequence experience is a very valuable power parenting method.

Thus, start today to power share with your kids and watch them grow into responsible teens who understand that their actions always have consequences.

The knowledge that good choices lead to good results often makes hard decision making a little easier.

You can find more great tips on how to be an awesome parent in this strategy here.

Power Parent Strategy 2

become a power parent today with these 5 simple strategies. #powerparent #parentingtips #bestparenting

As parents, a lot of us are guilty of taking over an action rather than coaching our kids to do it themselves. It saves us time and effort hanging up a used towel.

Rather than trying to get your child back in the bathroom and showing him AGAIN how to do it.

But, this is, unfortunately, the wrong way to go about getting things done at home if you want to be a power parent.

The next time he will surely leave the towel on the floor again…  Knowing that you will be picking it up behind him.

Leaving the towel on the floor will be a more effective strategy than hanging it out yourself.

Finding a wet towel on the floor to use the next day, will definitely make him think twice about hanging it up. But, chances are he might leave it on the floor again soon…

So how does a power parent then handle this situation?
By offering support!

become a power parent today with these 5 simple strategies. #powerparent #parentingtips #bestparenting

And, by not being a helicopter parent! Ask your child to hang the towel up, showing him how, again… and discuss the reasons for doing so.

And then, walk away trusting them to get it done without you hovering over them!

Understanding the reasons for a simple request as well as the consequences if not adhered to, will assist your child in making smarter decisions.

Allowing them to complete a task without you waiting around to make sure it gets done, instills trust.

Without trust, any parent-child relationship is doomed …

More examples are; when your child is not able to close his jacket zipper, teach him how, rather than pulling it up yourself.

Quickly helping your child eat is much easier than teaching him how to hold his fork properly. But unfortunately, this will not teach him the must needed new skill.

Resist the urge to complete tasks for them in order to save your own sanity…

Take the extra time, discuss the actions and get them involved. And then, trust them to do it!

Offering support rather than taking over is an action we all have to pay special attention to.

We complete tasks without even realizing it. My husband is so good at offering support. Watching him coach the kids to learn new skills made me realize the value of this small effort.

But like most moms, getting things done quicker used to be of more value to me. This was until I saw my kids displaying new skills.

Skills they did not learn from me but from my husband’s patient support offering.

Keep an eye out and find opportunities to offer support to your kids rather than taking over their tasks.

Allow them to learn from their own mistakes and thus thrive as assertive kids.

Knowing how to successfully educate your child every day will assist you further in offering much-needed support.

Power Parent Strategy 3

become a power parent today with these 5 simple strategies. #powerparent #parentingtips #bestparenting

Kids are great at doing small jobs around the house. They can unpack the dishwasher and fold their clean clothes.

Teach them from young to help and make sure they know how much this means to you.

They will quickly learn that by doing a 5-minute job they not only make you happy but also gain an extra 5 minutes of your attention.

The value of welcoming effort lies not within the perfection of performance, but in the effort itself.

Willingness to help is way more valuable than the perfect ability to do things without the enthusiasm to volunteer contribution.

The action of welcoming effort rather than performance originates from creative freedom.

Allow your child the autonomy to express their own thoughts and feelings.

For example, never do crafts with a first prize result in mind. And, refrain from subduing creative minds by enforcing reality. Allow kids to express themselves, enjoy and discover the power of their own imagination.

Is their way of folding a towel really that ineffective simply because it is different from your way?

Good parent-child communication can be challenging at times, but it is very important.

It impacts positively on our family life when effective. It benefits every other social interaction our children will have, be it with friends or the teacher at the school.

A child, and even more so, an adult who does not have the skills to listen and communicate effectively will never be able to stand his ground.

Nor would he be able to thrive in our communication driven world. A world filled with public speaking, social media, and complex relationships.

By acquiring effective communication skills from us, our children grow confident in speaking about their ideas and feelings, no matter the situation.

They will also appreciate the importance of listening when others are speaking and respect different views and opinions.

Check out the six building blocks to stress-free parent-child communication. 

Incorporate them into your family life today and let conversation time be something you and your children cherish.

Top Learning Styles for Kids. Discover the Steps to Successfully Educate Your Child Every Day

What are learning styles and why do we need to pay attention to them? Is there value in using them to educate my child? And, how can I discover and develop my child’s learning styles?

top learning styles for kids. discover the secret to successfully educate your child every day.#kidslearning #learningstyles #educatekids #parenting #homeschool

In this post, I answer all these questions about learning styles and more! I share my thoughts on the what, how and when of learning styles for kids, as well as effective learning style activities.

Read on to discover the steps to successfully educate your children. Kids learning made easy. Utilize this powerful approach to guide them in learning excellence.

The basis of Learning Styles

Learning styles are defined as models explaining different learning methods. There are many learning style modalities described for kids. Some more elaborate than others. But in essence, they all describe the way you prefer to learn.

Learning styles also dictate the manner in which you present yourself. The way you learn something will, therefore, determine the way you recall it. In other words, your learning style will predict the way, and the words you choose, to remember and describe events.

Teachers and parents use learning styles to discover the best tactics for child education. However, neuroscientists, psychiatrists, and child psychologists have varied opinions on the importance of using learning styles. Nevertheless, all these experts agree that different learning styles do exist. In my opinion, there certainly is value to support a child’s preferred learning style and more importantly provide experience in the lesser used methods. This strategy results in more efficient learning capabilities by knowing and understanding oneself better.

Never label kids

The hesitation from the medical and educational professionals to use learning styles is easily understood. The problem does not lie in the effectiveness of this strategy. It is however present in the risk of child classification or labeling. From years of research, we all know that categorizing kids into certain groups can lead to limiting a child’s potential, a lack of confidence and even peer pressure.

We should, therefore, refrain from using learning styles to label our kids. We should not limit them to their awareness of learning style preferences. But rather use the knowledge and power of learnings styles to drive our kids towards effective learning experiences.

What can I as a parent do?

The steps of successfully educating your child with the help of learning styles are not focused on teachers only. As a parent of a young child, you can have a massive impact on your child’s learning efficiency by discovering their preferred learning style from as early as 2 to 3 years of age.  And then focusing on developing the lesser favored strategies at home prior to school going years. You will find more academic information on learning styles in the Discover your child’s Learning Style and  How to Implement and Supervise a Learning Style Program books.

Understanding and knowing how to learn gives children confidence and motivates them to excel. There are few more difficult situations during school years than dealing with kids who do not know how to learn or simply don’t enjoy it because they don’t understand the principles or how to apply them. This basic education skill needs to be established by parents from very early on in life.  As a parent you can achieve this easily by following:

So, let’s dive into the facts behind each learning style and define the group of learners, understand the part of the brain involved and explore the characteristics of each style. We will also touch on the optimal learning environment for the various learning styles and suggest the best educational toys and activities. Remember to include toys and activities from your child’s lesser preferred learning styles to grow this capability, rather than just buying the type of games they already enjoy.

Learning Styles: Visual top learning styles for kids #kidslearning #learningstyles

The majority of learners fall into this common group and that explains why most teachers focus their teaching methods on visual learning activities. An interesting article on this learning model was published recently if you enjoy a good academic read.

Learning Style Definition

This style includes kids who think in dimensions, understand spatial orientation and like to use pictures, shapes, paintings and images to learn. They enjoy diagrams and graphs to ease their understanding of a subject.

Brain involvement

Spatial orientation is accomplished by the occipital and parietal lobes of the brain.

Characteristics

Visual learners need visual instructions and a pen in hand. Always allow them to doodle in between instructions; this is part of their learning process. They like to take lots of notes and close their eyes to visualize facts.

Optimal learning environment

They generally prefer their rooms clean and neat with beautiful images or paintings. Quiet surroundings will allow them to visualize their work and remember better.

Suggested activities and toys

If you want to teach your child to draw, for example, a house, ask them to draw it as you described it or from looking at a similar image. Discussing the actual elements of a house will not interest a visual learner.

Great educational toys include soft books, spelling and counting puzzles and when they are a bit older 3D brain teaser transformer as well as snap circuits and brain flakes.

If you already have an Apple iPad at home, I would highly recommend investing in an OSMO Genius Kit, specifically for their Tenogram Game to encourage visual thinking. This is a brilliant way to encourage non-visual learners into visual learning.

Learning Styles: Auditorytop learning styles for kids #kidslearning #learningsstyles

Learning Style Definition

The best way for aural learners to remember facts is by hearing them. Verbal instructions are therefor their choice of learning method.

Brain involvement

Auditory facts are managed by the temporal lobes and as some of you may know, music is processed on the right side of the brain.

Characteristics

Reading the facts out loud and finding a rhyme or chant that goes with it will optimize learning. Aural learners often talk to themselves while learning something new and are easily distracted by music or sounds while learning.

Optimal learning environment

They need a quiet space to learn best and should not be distracted by music and sounds.

Suggested activities and toys

For auditory learners, I would recommend the OSMO coding jam game, used with the OSMO Genius Kit on your Apple iPad. Other great educational toys include audio books, musical instruments and snap circuit FM radio.

You can also have a look at these 20 listening games and activities for pre-schoolers for more ideas.

Learning Styles: Verbaltop learning styles for kids. discover steps to successfully educate your child #kidslearning #learningsstyles

Learning Style Definition

These learners prefer linguistic tactics. They have to read and then write the facts in order to remember them.

Brain involvement

This time the left side of the brain is more involved, mostly the Broca and Wernicke speech areas.

Characteristics

Verbal learners need to use words, both in speech and writing.

Optimal learning environment

They generally prefer a neat and clean working space with access to many different colored pens, pencils and highlighters.

Suggested activities and toys

Top Learning Styles for Kids. Discover the steps to successfully educate your child everyday #kidslearning #learningsstylesBest toys and activities to stimulate these verbal learners are book games for reading and writing, the Leapfrog scribble and write, EduQuiz Set and writing workbooks.

 

Learning Styles: Logicaltop learning styles for kids #kidslearning #learningsstyles

Learning Style Definition

Logical learners rationalize things, they ask a lot of questions and love mathematical problems.

Brain involvement

The logical thinking processes happen in the parietal lobes, mostly on the left side.

Characteristics

These learners use logic and reasoning and show unexpected insight at an early age. They love to ask WHY!

Optimal learning environment

They like a space to learn where they can place their gadgets, move their brain toys around and be inspired by their engineered wonders.

Suggested activities and toys

Best toys for these learners include IQ smart games and  IQ challenge sets. They enjoy wooden tetris, Meccano and snap circuits.

The Newton Game that is part of the OSMO Genius Kit, specifically for the problem-solving skills is one of the best activities when you have an Apple iPad.

Learning Styles: Physicaltop learning styles for kids #kidslearning #learningsstyles

Learning Style Definition

Tactile learners use object manipulation or body movements to learn.

Brain involvement

All our physical crusades are managed by the cerebellum and motor cortex.

Characteristics

Associating the facts with parts of their body is a great way for them to learn. They often talk with their hands and move around while listening. They need to take breaks often in order to stay productive.

Optimal learning environment

A high work desk where they can stand and write works well for these learners. Replace their seat with a stationary bicycle and watch them speed towards excellence!

Suggested activities and toys

Physical learners enjoy building blocks, brain flakes, and gyro wheels when they are a bit older. To introduce toddlers to letter and numbers invest in inexpensive letter and number shaped fridge magnets.

A super way to expose kids to creative drawing skills is with the Masterpiece Game on the OSMO Genius Kit, This genius game set that works with your Apple iPad is one of the best teaching tools.

The infamous fidget arrow and rainbow spinners are a great way to keep these little hands busy …

An extension of the above learning styles includes two more groups:

Learning Styles: InterpersonalLearning styles for kids_Infographic #kidslearning #learningsstyles

This learning style includes children who prefer to learn with someone else or in a group. These social undertakings are managed by our frontal and temporal lobes. Social interaction is also handled by the limbic system. Finding a study buddy will really help these kids to optimize their learning strategy. Auditory learners are often included in this group.

Learning Styles: IntrapersonalLearning styles for kids_Infographic #kidslearning #learningsstyles

Intrapersonal learners are children who prefer to do self-study and work by themselves. The frontal and limbic system is again involved here, as well as the parietal lobes. Forcing them to work in groups will be detrimental to their learning capabilities.

Understand the different learning styles and discover the benefits of successfully educating your child even before they start their school years! This is an easy way for you to be an awesome parent with brilliant kids!

Remember that although we focus on the learning styles in kids today, the same principles hold for adults. If you want to make sure you remember 5 things you need from the store, discover your own learning style. If you are a visual learner, try writing them down in 5 different colors. Or, if you are more auditory learning inclined, chant the 5 things to yourself several times! Using the right and effective learning style, you will be surprised how well you remember them!

My favorite activities to discover and develop learning styles

1. Letter, number and shape activity

top learning styles. discover the steps to successfully educate your child every day #kidslearning #learningsstyles

This activity will teach kids the letters of the alphabet and numbers, whilst exposing and shaping learning styles. This is an activity that can be used for all ages. By giving your children the freedom to choose the way they want to manipulate the activity, without instruction, will be a good indicator of his or her preferred learning style.

Write or print out big font letters on cardboard. Prior to instructing the kids, give them one letter and ask for suggestions of what they would like to do with it. This will give you a great first impression of their learning style of choice.

top learning styles. discover the steps to successfully educate your child every day #kidslearning #educatekids #smartkids #learningstylesThis image shows what my 5-year-old son created when I gave him a page with his name and a selection of beads, shells, pencils and stickers. It was very easy to discover his learning styles by giving him free reign.

Activity Tips
  • With younger kids, it is a great idea to only do one or two of the crafts below at a time. Space them over a couple of days to really get them engaged and help you discover their strengths and weaknesses.
  • For kids younger than 3 years of age, use shapes rather than numbers and letters.

After assessing their preferred style, continue to lead the activity by following the instructions below. The learning style is indicated at the end of each instruction. Use them as a guide to determine your child’s preferred and non-preferred learning styles.

Learning styles activity instructions

  1. Give your child the numbers, letters or shapes to look at and let them trace the outline with their fingers – visual.
  2. Let them cut the letter out, preferably with child-safe scissorstactile.
  3. Talk about the name of the letter and words that start with or contain the letter – auditory. Always focus first on the letters of their names.
  4. Sing a song pertaining to the relevant word – auditory and verbal.
  5. Ask them to repeat the letter names after you and try to replicate the letter with a pencil. When older than 6 years, let them practice writing these words down – verbal reading and writing.top learning styles. discover the steps to successfully educate your child every day #kidslearning #learningsstyles
  6. Printing pictures of objects starting with the relevant letter is also great for having your child group them with the corresponding letter – visual.
  7. Provide stickers, flat glass beads, shells or pasta to stick onto the letter – tactile.
  8. Do some of the activity with them – interpersonal.
  9. Leave them to do some on their own – intrapersonal.
    • this way you will very easily find if they prefer working on their own or in a group. Continue working with them if that is their preference, but also get them to do some parts alone. This is a very important skill for later in life – being able to work alone. The ability to entertain themselves without having someone around will give you some much-needed time off to get things done in and around the house.
