Hands on : as we grow is all about the hands on activities that I do at home with my three boys [Henry 4, George 2, and Louis, my baby]. Lots of practical, easy activities are shared, and learning opportunities are snuck in whenever possible.
Hands on kids activities for hands on moms.
You’ll find crafts, art projects, gross motor activities, and fine motor activities regularly on the blog. And a couple times each month I do a collection of play activities on a theme, such as what to do with all your crayons!
Being hands on with your kids is a simple task that I am on a mission to get all moms to do. Its simply carving out time for your kids to focus on them each and every day. Whether you do it by playing with them, reading to them, or doing an activity like we do! Its all hands on and I applaud it all!
To get started being hands on with your kids:
- ABCs of being a Hands on Mom
- How to become Hands on with your Kids
- 30 Days to Hands on Play Challenge
While my mission is to get every mom active with their children, there’s also times when you need to be hands off. For two reasons:
- Your kids really need to learn how to entertain themselves. This is when they’ll thrive and push themselves.
- You need your own time to yourself too! Don’t forget about YOU.
Here’s what you can expect here on hands on : as we grow:
- Activities that are simple to put together for your kids. I almost always do activities that use what I have on hand that are fitting for preschoolers, toddlers and even babies occasionally!
- A parenting post here and there. This isn’t my forte of handing out advice, but I do have experience of being a mom, so I share my experiences every once in awhile.
- From time to time I get the opportunity to review and share a product that is of interest to myself, and hopefully you, too!
- Each week I send out a newsletter to subscribers of our hands on activities, sharing what we did that week, passing along a couple of activities that I found elsewhere that I loved, and giving you updates of what’s going on here at home and in my little blog world.
To get a feel for hands on : as we grow, might start by checking out my favorite hands on activities that we’ve done! And if you’re new to doing hands on activities with the kids, I welcome you to join the 30 Days to Hands on Play Challenge.
I have a free gift for you too! I’d like to share with you my activities planner that will help you be organized each week and remind you to be hands on with your kids. By signing up to receive our hands on activities via email [its free!], you’ll also receive the planner!
Come meet my family and see what we’re all about. I usually try to keep my husband out of the blog just because. But you might be interested to know just what I all do, even though I claim myself as a stay at home mom.
