    Summer Activities for Kids

    Friday, June 28th, 2013

    How long have your children been out of school for now? Are they still excited, or have they started to whine about being bored yet? Do you still have items on your “fun stuff to do with the kids” list? Do you need a few more ideas to add to it, before they drive you insane?

    Summer Activities For Kids

    personalized kitchen stickers

    Personalized kitchen stickers are perfect for labeling your strawberry jam!

    Young children love to help. They make natural gardeners, especially when it is time to harvest yummy goodness from the garden. While there might not be too much ready for harvesting in your back garden yet, June is the perfect month for berry picking. Strawberries are coming to a close in many areas, but blueberries are taking over in the picking department. Both are delicious to eat, and make for a fun family excursion to pick. Once you get home you can continue to eat them raw, or get creative with making pies, jams and jellies. A little strawberry jam mid-winter is enough to bring back warm summer memories and the fun you had together as a family.

     

    personalized double deck playing cards

    Anyone up for cards with these personalized double deck playing cards?

    We have had our fair share of rain so far this summer, which makes for not the best beach days, but perfect for indoor activities. Instead of watching the rain fall, why not grab a game and make the best of it with some family fun indoors. Teach your kids how to shuffle with these personalized double deck playing cards. They will be the envy of their friends next school year, especially when they show off how many new card games they have learned. Think Memory, Go Fish, Crazy Eights, Rummy, War, or even introduce the game of Cribbage for the more advanced card players out there.

    Why not host a road hog tricycle play-date?

    How about arranging a play-date with some other neighborhood kids? Don’t feel like you need to spend every waking minute with your children. Sometimes they just need to spend time with friends their own age. Kids need to laugh, giggle and be silly, and doing that with someone your own age is sometimes the perfect remedy to boredom. All you need to do is provide snacks and a drink or two, and your kids can provide the rest of the magic, while you enjoy a little freedom from being entertainment organizer for a few hours.

     

    camping wall art

    Relive the fun memories all year with this camping wall art

    It wouldn’t be summer without a camping trip getting planned. There is just something about escaping from the everyday and exploring all that Mother Nature has to offer. Discover wildlife, go boating and swimming, or just relax by the campfire at night with a scary ghost story or two. A camping trip is not only fun, but a great way for your busy family to reconnect after a long school year has come to a close.

    The Funny Bunny

    Here is a bunny
    With ears so funny,

    And jumps into the hole
    In the ground!

    The Gift of Babies

    Friday, June 7th, 2013

    On June 7th, James Young Simpson (Obstetrician [used chloroform], b. 1811), Virginia Apgar (American physician & childbirth specialist, b. 1909), Virginia McKenna (Actress [Born Free], b. 1931), Johnny Clegg (South African Musician [Album 'Third World Child'], b. 19530), and Louise Erdrich (Author [Love Medicine], b. 1954) were born. They are all great people and have contributed much to the world. Do you see the link between them (think babies)?

    birthday banner – vintage sports

    personalized luggage tags – wedding rings

    They share their birthdays with another very special date in American history. On June 7th, 1965 the Supreme Court of the United States decided that the law against contraceptives was unconstitutional. The Griswold vs Connecticut case led the way to the legalization for married couples to access birth control. As of 1965, contraception was legal and became a matter of choice for consenting “married” adults (oral contraceptives had been approved by the FDA in 1960).

     

    drawstring gown (blue trim)

    As much as Babybox.com loves pregnancy and babies, we can certainly appreciate what that ruling has meant for future generations. Children are a blessing and a joy when sought by a loving couple. We all know that sometimes timing can be key to being able to provide for children though. Having the opportunity to choose when to conceive, or not, just makes the process that much easier for all involved. While there have been many blessings in disguise from “oops” babies, taking the time to ensure that you are able to offer your all means a lot too. Whether it is waiting to have a baby until after you finish school, or once you have established a career, these choices can be wise ones to make, financially, emotionally and even socially. Even having the option to decide the number of children to bear can potentially benefit everyone in your family. Birth control has certainly shown its benefits over the years.

     

    ultimate swaddling blanket by swaddle designs

    Whether you choose to have babies when you are younger, older, alone, or with a partner, it is an important decision to make. Children are a huge responsibility that deserve a little forethought before being brought into the world. Once they are here you must feed, clothe, nurture, educate , love and cherish them for years to come. In fact, hopefully that love just continues to grow as your children do. Whether they turn out to be painters (Paul Gauguin [Post-Impressionist], b. 1848), actors (Liam Neeson, b. 1952), musicians (Prince, b. 1958), tennis players (Anna Kournikova, b. 1981) or just your very own special kids, they are treasures that have been bestowed upon you. Treat those gifts with care.

    No man should bring children into the world who is unwilling to persevere to the end in their nature and education. ~ Plato
