Check out our list of 6 activities to do at home with your family and watch out for some video examples on our Instagram @gryphandivyrose.
6 Activities to do at Home with your Family:
No one likes to scrub off crayons or markers from the walls or kitchen counter. That's why we suggest coloring with chalk while inside the home. It is easy to wash off of most surfaces with water. (The kids might even help with the washing)
Take this time together to sit down a read a book. Whether it is a mid-day break or a part of the nighttime routine. 'The Lost Elephant' is a beautifully illustrated book by our beloved pediatrician Stephen Cowan.
This lip scrub is only three ingredients found in your kitchen pantry. Simply mix together 2 TBS of brown sugar, coconut oil and honey to create a fun & sweet scrub for your lips. Watch this video tutorial on @gryphandivyrose.
Working out at home can be challenging with a little one around. Try to include them in your workout routine, whether that is letting them try a few reps themselves or make them a weight by carrying them on a walk or a set of stairs.
5. Write in a Gratitude Journal
Take the time to write 3 things that you are grateful to have in your life to promote a growth mindset. This can be done together or individually. You can make it more fun by adding some doodles, stickers or collage work to your journal.
We found this delicious scallion scone recipe from Bon Appetit. It is super easy to make with the kids and perfect to go along with some soup or simply by itself. Make a huge batch and you can freeze them for later! Stay tuned for a video on @gryphandivyrose
