Have you ever had one of those rainy days with kids when you don’t know what to do with them? Or like me your kids have been after you to get a pet and you dread with all the work that comes along with them. Not to mention the fear of growing emotional attachment with them.
Here is the perfect solution to it.This summer after our Out of country trip, my kids were not interested in joining any camps. My son told me he simply want to “chillax” 🙂 . If you are one of those parents who believe in restricted electronic time , the task becomes more difficult on how to keep them occupied in a constructive way. My daughter kept asking for the pet and then this idea dawned on me. I told her well instead of getting a pet why don’t we create a pet . She was like “Huh… create a pet ? ” . She likes rock collection so we decided we will do rock painting and she decided on lady bug and frog. My kids named them Lilo and Stitch. Now the kids are happy (they got 2 pet) and Mommy is happy ( the kids learnt something new and now they are happy too) and of course the pets are ready to welcome the seasons in our front yard.
This summer when you make those beach trips gather few nice rocks , save them and then turn them in to beautiful work of art in those rainy days.
