This is something that has worked really well with our children so far. It’s a DIY Mama and Me Book. A little book to talk back and forth with your child. It’s the easiest way I have found to connect with my children during busy times.
I wish I could take credit for this idea. But I can’t. I saw it on Mama Jenn and it comes complete with printables.
But I have to share this idea again because it really is a nice way to connect with your child. You can use any notebook or journal. I made my little book. It’s super easy. Just Mod Podge scrapbook paper to a cheap composition notebook.
Update: I made one for Little Son and gave it to him when he turned 11 years old. It has worked great. He asks questions or just tells me cool stuff. It’s been really awesome so far.
