Parents are Drawing with Children, the Results are Amazing!

Drawing is an activity all parents should use to help develop their children’s cognitive functions, psychomotor functions, creativity and also to have fun and bond with them. A child’s drawing can tell a lot about their thinking, emotions and experiences they are exposed to. Children draw what they know and how they think of the things they know therefore their drawings are an expression of everything they have inside and an easy and cool things to draw collection could help a great deal in this endeavor.

Happiness, anger, love, intelligence and coordination are some of the things that can easily be seen from a child’s drawing. A parent can easily use a child’s drawing to help learn more about them and also to assist nurture their drawing talent when the kids are passionate about drawing.
Children drawings mean a lot to the parents especially when the emotions expressed by the child are those of love towards the family and happiness. These drawings can be framed and placed in the house or in the child’s room. Some parents have gone further to have tattoos of drawings made by their children. The drawings are also sometimes used as fridge stickers. Framing and displaying the drawings help to boost the confidence of the child and helps them to express themselves freely. To help boost the confidence of the children “The Monster Project” for example takes children monster drawings and recreates them into complete drawings and sends them back to the children.

Children’s drawings can help to change the entire family or different family members depending on how the child depicts a family photo. Psychologists have shown that if a child draws a family photo and a member of the family is missing then something is amiss. Also if a child’s photos are always drawn in red and black ink only this could be a sign of anger and/or depression. The child may also show anger and aggressiveness when drawing some people showing dislike towards them. It is therefore important for the parent to observe the child as they draw together. Dislike towards a family member, animal, pet or an activity that the children are subjected to is an honest emotion for them. Parents should therefore speak with their children about it and also use the child’s future drawings to see if they have changed the way they used to feel.

Drawing together also helps the parents to communicate with their children. Doing so often makes the parents best friends with their children. Since a child’s pictures might just be sticks or very unclear it is therefore imperative that the parent asks the child to explain what is happening in the picture. The child and the parent are therefore able to communicate with each other. This gives a platform for the parent to also learn what the child is acquiring from the various experiences they are subjected to in the family, school and community as a whole.
Parents drawing with their children is an activity that can yield amazing results in the family as well as in the drawing skills of the child. Guiding the child during the process helps them to harness their skills making them better artists in the future.

How do you see these epic endeavors? Would love to hear from you !

Fabletics Review

fabletics-kristen-1               fabletics-kristen-4

Women, let’s be honest with ourselves… Who doesn’t live in their yoga pants and activewear even if we’re not actually working out all the time? I know I do, and I have found the ultimate place to shop for an entire outfit at an affordable price. No, it’s not your usual overpriced athletic brand; it’s called Fabletics, co-founded by Kate Hudson. Whether you are a fitness guru or a stay-at-home mom who loves to live in your activewear, then Fabletics is the brand for you!

Fabletics has hooked me into buying their fab, super trendy, yet affordable clothing. Why, might you ask? Not only do I feel great in their cool, colorful styles, but I also save 50% off their regular retail price by signing up for their VIP membership! I can pay only $49.95 for an entire outfit! Fabletics even discounts your first VIP purchase to only $25.00, and shipping is always free.

Fabletics is mainly known as Kate Hudson’s workout gear. She even has stylish outfits called “Kate’s Picks” that you can choose from. Of course I couldn’t wait to start shopping my favorite outfits in hopes of one day looking as sexy as the spokeswoman, Kate Hudson herself!


All I had to do is take a short quiz so I can get customized outfits. Each month new collections are sent to me and I have from the 1st till the 5th of each month to choose an outfit or “skip the month,” otherwise I will get billed the $49.95 on the 6th. The best part about being a VIP member is you can skip as many months as you need to and continue VIP status. There is no obligation and you can cancel at any time.

Overall, my experience with Fabletics has been very good. Although I am not working out in my Fabletics activewear as much as I’d like, I am looking super trendy chasing after my very active children in high quality, affordable priced outfits that I feel good wearing. I get complimented on my matching outfits all the time.

Even if you can’t afford to invest in a new outfit each month, I would highly urge you to consider signing up to get the VIP member exclusive first outfit for $25.00 + free shipping. This is an amazing deal Fabletics is offering for new VIP members!

Five Cool Gifts for Your Dad This Father’s Day

In case you have forgotten, Father’s Day is right around the corner. Yup, Sunday June 18th. If you have not yet gotten your dad a gift for Father’s Day, do not worry! We have come up with a list of five cool ideas of gifts to give to your dad to show him how much you appreciate him.

Online casino account


Do not be boring. Think out of the box. No more ties and chocolates. Why not treat your dad to an online casino account at a Canadian online casino. Load his account with a generous deposit to set him up for some big wins! Dad will be sure to enjoy this thoughtful and original gift that will let him play his favourite casino games such as poker, blackjack and roulette. But remember to ask your mom for help in setting this up if you are not legally old enough to do so yourself.

A day of adventure


Why not create a fun filled day for you and your dad to have together. Focus the day around activities that he either already enjoys or will have fun trying for the first time. Good ideas include abseiling, golf, river rafting, clay pigeon shooting, a cooking course, or a hike to somewhere with a breath-taking view.

Whiskey or wine


It’s a very traditional gift, for sure, but if you do some research about the best whiskey and wine in your area, you can potentially get your dad a real special treat of a gift that he will definitely enjoy. If you live near any local vineyards, take a trip there and get some advice from the resident sommelier.

Candle lit dinner


This works incredibly well if you have siblings to enlist help from. Plan, prepare, cook and serve a candle lit dinner for your dad and mum to enjoy together. Take out the fanciest china and set up a beautiful table for your parents. Your dad works very hard, so this is a lovely, thoughtful way to let him have some quality time with your mom and not have to worry about cooking. Make sure to cook a three course meal for this special occasion. Look up recipes online to help you create the perfect menu. Be sure to include some of his favourite foods to make sure he knows how much effort you have put into the evening.

Go tech crazy


If you have a bit more money to spend on dad, why not treat him to one of the latest tech toys on the market? Try matching the gift to his interests or hobbies. If he is athletic and takes his fitness seriously, think about getting him a Fitbit that will help him track his daily activity and sleep patterns. If dad isn’t into the active life so much, other great options include a Virtual Reality headset or a Bluetooth tracking tag key ring so that he will never lose his keys ever again!

5 Most Effective Fashion Tips That Every Man Should Know

Fashion is not only a woman’s cup of tea and every man should know that well. Well, the logic behind such a statement is that whenever there arises a topic of being fashionable all that what comes in anyone’s mind is a stunningly dressed gorgeous lady walking down the lane. But, that should not be the scenario always!! Men should very well understand that fashion is something that they should follow as well because everyone will not like to get along with a guy who is not dressed smartly and do not carry himself well. And why not follow trend when you can buy fashionable clothes and accessories while saving huge bucks? Well, all thanks goes to the exhilarating money-saving offers like marks and spencer!!

But, only piling up your closet with stylish and up-to-the-minute everything doesn’t serve your purpose of looking like a style icon. It needs more!! And here I am today with such fruitful five fashion tips that if you follow in your day-to-day life will definitely do wonders for you!!

Take a glance over!!

1. Your supporting pieces are important

The rule of the thumb is that your dresses should have a contrast with each other. You should always pay attention to the fact that your top and bottom parts are matching. For example, if you’re wearing a fluffy, chunky and rugged jumpsuit then make sure that you’ve paired it up with a rugged pant too or a cargo or even a jeans but never wear it with a silk-and-wool suit pant.

2. Don’t go for shopping alone

The sales people in various stores works for a commission most of the time, so if you go for shopping alone then it’s sure that you’ll end up spending huge bucks. It’s because you’ll have no one to help you decide the right dress at an appropriate price. That’s why always try that you shop with a friend who will give you an honest opinion in everything.

3. Make sure that you’re a notch above

You should be sure enough that you’re not overdoing it to a fault but take care of the fact that you’re taking some risks. It’s because isn’t it good that you’re a bit overdressed than being underdressed? Just all that what you’ve to do is to think where and who you’re going with and stay a bit towards the upper level. But, make sure that if you’re in an official meeting then you’re not dressed in a more stylish way than your boss.

4. Invest on your shoes

The first thing that a woman notices in you is your shoes. Especially the cleanliness and sharpness of it. But, most of the guys are not well-versed with this fact. They wash and press their clothes regularly but disregard their shoes. So, don’t do that. Always maintain an image of a man with a great taste by wearing a great and pristine pair of shoes.

5. Don’t go for the brand names always

When you go for a shopping for yourself make sure you don’t act like Patrick Bateman! So, before you decide to purchase anything make sure that you ask yourself whether you’re buying it only for the brand-name or because you love the quality and the design. You should always buy such things even without a logo. Just understand that quality doesn’t always depend on the tags!!

So, if you’re someone who wants to looks stylish and attractive when you enter a party scene or office then make sure that you’ve incorporated the aforementioned things. On doing that, you’ll certainly turn everyone around you absolutely jaw-dropped.
