Beat the Winter Meltdown!

It’s that time of year—the holidays are over, the novelty of snow is gone, and cabin fever is setting in. It’s obvious the children need an outlet, but what can you do? Now is the perfect time to open the doors of imagination in your home and get the creative juices flowing!

Even though you might not be particularly artistic or creative, your children are. I can tell you from experience that marker masterpieces don’t easily wash off walls (or siblings). Take this opportunity to focus their creativity as they explore the things that hold their interest.

From scrapbooking to photography to learning about how cartoons are made, every child can benefit from taking some time to be creative. Who knew that flip books could be made so easily and on almost any topic? Try something new and fun in your homeschool—you may be raising the next Beatrix Potter or Monet!
