Life seems to get busier and more stressful by the day.
Sometimes, days go by and you realize you haven’t had a chance to sit down and chat and connect with your child in a meaningful way.
Mornings are a rush to get to school, carpooling involves a van full of friends teasing or bickering or lost on their devices, weekends are full of extracurriculars, evenings mean homework, and dinners, while often the best time for connecting, more frequently devolve into complaints about the food and cajoling one more bite.
How do we slow things down, even for an hour?
One answer is to intentionally incorporate creative activities for children into your schedule through simple art projects.
