Interests

I really do not have any business that I
do avidly. I spend a lot of hours in front of this computer because I absolutely
love what I do on the internet. People really enjoy and learn from my website,
and I find that very gratifying
Since I spent the better part of my
life trading physical labor for money just to pay the bills, using technology to
supplement my income really intrigues me
I Have developed a lifetime love affair
with Dogs and Dog Agility. I truly enjoy this very fast growing Sport Here in
the U.K.. It gets you out and about in all weathers and of course in the winter
there are venues Indoors,so it is an all year round persuit! and good excercise
for you and your doggies
I enjoy combining MotorCaravanning with
doggie jumping and that makes the most out of the Weekends and sometimes Weeks
away from home.

**********************************

Are you looking for ways to keep craft time with your children simple and fun? If so, I hope you will put some of the following suggestions to use.

 

1. Find the craft the kids want to make and then make a list of all the supplies you will need to make the craft.

 

2. If you do not have everything on hand add the supplies you need to your shopping list so you will not forget them.

 

3. Put a plastic table cloth down where you will be crafting.

 

4. Have all supplies laid out before you announce craft time to your kids.

 

5. Use non-toxic paints, glues, etc.

 

6. Have wet wipes and paper towels handy for spills.

 

7. Always try to have extra supplies in case something is lost or torn, etc.

 

8. Let them wear old clothes so you will not be stressed out over ruining what they are wearing.

 

9.Show the kids how to do the craft but let them do it in their own way. If you insist on it being perfect then you might as well do the craft yourself and forget about having craft time with the kids. It also makes the children thnk that everything has to be perfect and that their best is not good enough. Sometimes little hands need help but you know you have gone too far when you are the only one left at the craft table.

 

10.Have fun! Don't worry about a little paint on their hands & faces, take pictures instead.

 

I hope you will try these suggestions for a stress free craft time with your children. Show them how to have fun, they will learn how to be stressed out way too soon anyway.
