Summer is here and our family is so excited to enjoy a little bit of downtime. Between working from home, writing a book, assisting with virtual school, going back and forth for Addie’s therapies (and more), it’s been a hectic year. I’ve made it a point to make a schedule of activities for each day of the week, and I’m excited for the fun it’ll bring. Although we have lots planned, there are times where we need down time so I can work. It’s definitely not easy to be on conference calls, Zoom meetings, or on the computer writing when there’s a toddler interrupting or trying to get on the screen. I wanted to share some things we’re doing this summer to keep Lawson entertained indoors during the break and I hope they’re helpful to you all as well!
Care For A Pet
As Lawson gets older, he’s learning more about having household responsibilities. Through ABCmouse Lawson has been able to earn Tickets & Rewards to choose fish for a virtual fish tank, and care for a virtual hamster. He loves it! After playing ABCmouse for the past few months, he’s asked to help with our fish at home, enjoys gathering eggs from our chickens, and happily playing with our dogs. Learning responsibilities with pets is a great activity for toddlers to learn in the summer, and I’m so glad to know he’s enjoying it virtually and in the home.
Want to subscribe to ABCmouse for your child?
ABCmouse is the app you have to get! As a work-from-home mom, I highly recommend ABCmouse. You won’t regret grabbing a subscription for your child and I think you’ll be surprised at the learning gains that are possible when ABCmouse is used at least 45 minutes a week. It’s super affordable too! Right now they’re offering a special deal: $5 for 2 months with a subscription, then $12.99 per month, until canceled.
