Family Matters: Homemade Valentines & More

Friday, February 04, 2011

 

Snow days getting you down? Turn that cabin fever into love with homemade Valentine's Day cards, plus more kid-related tips for modern family life in Rhode Island.

Kido Tip 1.  DIY Valentines

Handmade valentines need not be elaborate or complicated.  Teaching our kids the value of making things and not always buying stuff from a store de-emphasizes some of the commercialism

surrounding most holidays. But making valentines for a few kids or an entire class may seem daunting to many parents even me who loves to craft. Best to spread the task over several days or select a simple project such as adding stickers to doily hearts (found at craft store or supermarket) or tracing hearts onto red paper. Find more DIY valentine projects on Kidoinfo.

Kido Tip 2. Choosing the right preschool

This time of year, many families of young kids may be making their final decisions about what preschool to choose for their child. Many factors go into this decision such as location, hours, and cost. Best to make an appointment to visit the schools which interest you, meet the teachers and visit the physical space.  Gayle J. Justynski, with over 20 years of experience working on behalf of young children as a teacher, director, and regulator recently shared her helpful advice on Kidoinfo on what to look for when choosing the right preschool for your child and family.

Kido Tip 3. Celebrate World Nutella Day on Saturday 5th

Our family loves this yummy chocolaty hazelnut spread from Italy. My boys enjoy having Nutella on pain de mie bread from 7 Stars Bakery for an after school snack. But our families favorite way to enjoy Nutella is inside a crepe - made at home or dining out at the Creperie on Fones Alley off Thayer Street in Providence.
