We have been having a lot of fun learning about plants in Science this year. I was trying to think of something fun to teach the parts of the flower. That’s when I decided to do this DIY tissue paper flower with the kids. We had so much fun and laughed more than we should have. I give this parts of a flower lesson idea bonus points because they can easily name the parts of the flower because of it.
This has been one of the hardest years I have ever had as a parent. It has been filled with grief, loss, and hurt that should never be experienced. Even worst, my kids had a front row seat to a lot of it. When you go through hard times it can be simpler to just tell the kids it isn’t for them to worry about. However, sometimes you have to have hard discussions. There are seasons for explaining hard things to kids. We are in the middle of that season and I wanted to share some tips to help you if you are dealing with anything similar.
Explaining Hard things to Kids
My daughter has become quite the avid reader. She devours books before I can even catch the whole plot line from her. I wanted to share some of these titles with you in case you are looking for a great book for 10-year-olds. I’m pretty sure she wears out our local librarians looking for the next adventure to go on. These are on different reading levels because she simply reads what she enjoys.
