"And I'm just dreaming, counting the ways to where you are" 100 Years by Five for Fighting
100 Days left in 2023!
🎉 This Friday July 22 marks 100 days left in 2023.
This is a fun opportunity to begin a countdown with kids of all ages. Countdowns are a great way to review calendars, counting forward, counting backward, skip counting, and time management.
Here are some simple ways to countdown:
🗓️ Print or buy a large calendar for your countdown. Let your kiddo cross off the days.
🗓️ Make a paper chain countdown. This old school craft will leave you feeling nostalgic. Glue 100 paper links together and remove one each day. Great activity for the kids on a rainy day.
🗓️ Fill a jar! Get 100 objects like colorful cotton balls, erasers, crayons etc. Each day put one in the jar.
🗓️ 100 love notes. Get the family together and write 100 love notes to your child. Each day they would get a post-it with a sweet message or drawing. Once they get the hang of it, maybe they can leave a few love notes for you too.
🗓️ Skip Count with straws. Get 100 straws. Each day put one in a cup. Every time you get 10 (or whatever number you chose to skip count) bundle them with a rubber band. As the days go by, you can skip count how many days it has been. Here's an easy premade countdown.
🎥 New Video: My first livestream was last weekend. If you didn't watch live, you can catch the replay here. Just skip the first 90 seconds where my camera conveniently malfunctioned. It wouldn't be live without a little chaos right?
📱New Strategy: I am changing up the style of my short videos. They will be a little shorter, with more voiceovers. My friend also challenged me to have instagram stories up everyday in September. I'm particularly excited to have more instagram stories up- this is something I have wanted to do, but felt overwhelmed committing to. It's a sign I've gotten more efficient at my work.
Things I Love (contains affiliate links)
🍁 Cute top for fall: I picked up this cute top from Shop the Mint. It's a loose button down that looks great with leggings or jeans. I got it in army green, but it also comes in linen.
🥤 So good: I got hooked on these drinks when I tried them at Vidcon. They are a lightly carbonated juice that taste so good. My favorite is sparkling clementine.
🎀 Has anyone tried these? Ok, so I've seen a lot of internet people using these heatless curlers...but do they actually work? Are they comfortable to wear? Let me know- I'm so curious!
Have a great week!
