Friendship Lesson for the Kiddos! #HalloweenTract

If you’ve never enjoyed the challenge of teaching children week after week, you may not quite get how big of a challenge it is.  However, if you have children you definitely get it.  Whether you are looking for non-scary ways to celebrate Halloween with your children or simply want an alternative to the traditional, I’ve found a great Halloween Tract to ‘hand out’ or just to get to teach your own children.  Let the Little Children Come has some awesome products, I especially love these little pumpkins they have!

This little craft product has so many great lessons!  Is there anything better than candy?  With the inside of each panel of the pumpkin comes a message that s essential for our children and ourselves!  It can be a challenge to come up with new and interesting projects.  This one is perfect for Halloween, Thanksgiving, or anytime for the Fall!  Perfect time to get yours ordered so that you are ready when September gets here!Friendship Lesson for the Kiddos!

Good friends listen to each other!

Have the children take turns with a ‘friendship item’ telling one thing they like about themselves.  This has two purposes; it builds the child up while teaching the children to find good things about others.

Next, ask the children to say something they like about another child.  In order to avoid everyone picking the same person, I suggest having the sit across from one another; definitely consider splitting up the children from their ‘normal’ group of friends, and having them pick something about the child across from them.

Making this quick and fun will help ensure that the kids maintain attention.  As you begin a craft or some other fun project, challenge the kids to try extra hard to listen to what people say when they speak.  You have no planted the best seed to help the children get on track to listen to others!

This little game goes perfect with the adorable little pumpkins featured and they are the perfect Segway into the lesson taught inside each side of the craft.  There are so many wonderful ways this fun little game can teach valuable lessons!

Feeling Lucky? @LugzNYC & an Herbal Foot Soak!

Shoes are absolutely awesome and most days I really like wearing them and then there are other days. Unfortunately, nobody lets me go barefoot and frankly I’ve seen the bottom of my feet after running through a parking lot and I really do not love that.  However, since society and filth dictate the necessity for me to wear shoes,  at least I feel like I’m barefoot sometimes. Let’s face it, our feet are made to walk.  *Queue the Boots are Made for Walking song to now be stuck in your head.  Your welcome. LOL*

My new Lugz Seabrooks are a great break from the dress shoes that I have to wear to work sometimes. They make me feel like I’m not wearing shoes at all sometimes except my feet are protected and stay clean. LOL Isn’t that nice? With the canvas on the outside, they are easy to wipe clean which makes them perfect for any kind of chores!  I love that I can work in the garden in them, hose them down and dry them in the dryer then wear them again with nearly anything!  Lugz Seabrook’s can go from the playground and casual dress to (in the right color) business in just a dusting of a hand towel and a change of clothes!  

Ahh, promotional items!  I did get these for free in exchange for this review.  However, my opinion is my own.  To that note, here are the things I don’t like…  Typically, I wear running shoes.  I always have.  This is the very first pair of shoes I have ever owned in this type.  It takes some time for your feet to adjust if you don’t normally wear shoes without support.  That’s it.  That’s my only complaint.  That being said, I will definitely be getting more shoes in this style in the future.  While they won’t be the shoes I wear for walks and runs, they will definitely be on my feet quitte frequently!

After a long day at work or play, we should all find a way to treat ourselves.  So, below is a fabulous way to make a simple foot bath to soak your feet in and relieve emotional stress at the same time!  What could be better after a long day when time is of the essence?

Hate your big feet?  Here’s a little tidbit I came across that I thought I would share.  The Karo Batik people of Indonesia find larger feet far more sexy, but then perhaps they aren’t bombarded with media telling them what to think!  So, ladies and gentlemen, perhaps if media didn’t control our opinions as if we were sheep we would all be loving big feet!  Until then, that’s a thought to keep in our arsenal!  I have big feet, I say it’s because I’m so tall I need the help with my balance.

Not enough time for a full soak? My suggestion is to make the mixtures in something you can seal, then wipe down your feet and prop them up for a while!
