10 Fun Activities To Do With Your Kids: All Ages

Well, friends, we’re back. Goober is a year older (so am I, but that’s irrelevant) and he’s even more on the move than he’s ever been. Last year, I had the opportunity to take a job as a teacher in a local daycare center. I seized that opportunity and hit the ground running so fast, I kind of forgot to look back at this blog. Now, with the dreaded Covid-19 quarantine looming over us, I feel a lot more prepared than I would had I not started teaching. (I primarily teach in the 4-5 age group, but I frequently visit the younger age groups as well). So straying from our original “Books First” focus, I have prepared a list of some fun things to do if you’re spending a LOT of time home with your kids!

Review: Children in our World- Racism and Intolerance by Louise Spitsbury and Hanane Kai

“Sometimes we hear words in the news and it’s hard to understand what they mean and how they affect us.” These are the words printed on the back of Children in our World: Racism and Intolerance, and they’re a sentiment that the BookwyrmMama household understands all to well.
It’s always difficult to have a discussion with your children about racism and intolerance. It’s never easy or simple to discuss injustices in our world, but the impact of having these conversations early and frequently impossible to ignore. Books like “Children in our World” could help ease into those hard to bring up discussions and make conversations a little bit easier.

My New Years Resolutions

What kind of blog would I be if I didn’t list out my New Years Resolutions for everyone? I don’t mean my personal goals (ahem, exercise more!) I do mean my book goals. This past year, I did a huge revamp of the blog, incorporating recipes, crafts, and product lists, and I think they are going very well. I also have a few reading and writing goals for 2019, and I’m VERY excited to share them with you!

January Book Per Month

It’s the first month in our 2019 attempt to expand our views beyond our favorite library shelves, and the first month is (Drumroll) Motivation and Self Help. I chose this primarily because I bought myself a Hygge book a few months ago, and I’ve been slacking on it. Really slacking. So in order to motivate myself, I’m using it as inspiration to get moving in the upcoming year. I’ll let you know how it goes, everyone!

One Book A Month

Now, I know what you’re thinking: Rachel, I read WAAYY more than one book a month (and so do I, obviously!), but this project is different. Instead of staying in our favorite sections of the library, content to read the same style of story over and over again, what we should be doing is expanding and growing our tastes. And so, this year, I am resolving to read at least one book in a different genre every month. Some I will be excited for, and others…I may dread. But they will be read, and processed, and reviewed and hopefully, I’ll grow or something! (PS the kids are doing this challenge too, they just don’t know it yet….) Don’t forget to comment on this post, OR tag us (here or on social media) when you complete a book! Use #bwmbookamonth to let us know your progress!
