Creativewithkids.com is a simple-to-navigate and fun-filled site full of creative ideas and activities to connect with children. Alissa, the author of the blog, is a homeschooling mother of three. Alissa has put together great articles and online resources for parents and caregivers about:
- engaging activities for children,
- managing emotions,
- and so much more.
A few of my favorites were her posts on:
- “Using things from the recycle bin to engage toddlers”,
- “Edible sensory activities for toddlers” and
- “Ways kids can help with Thanksgiving.”
Most of this blog seems focused on parenting, but the activities and articles presented are relevant to anyone caring for children. Many of these articles could also be printed out and given to parents as handouts. Creativewithkids.com has regular giveaways and is continunally updated. Currently there is a great series of postings with a new Christmas/winter themed activity every day. You can also connect with her via facebook, pinterest and twitter.
I give this site four stars out of five!
