... and help keep your kids healthy this flu and cold season.
Every kid loves stuffed animals – they are soft, cute, big, cuddly and easy and fun to play with. But just like any other toy they need to be washed as well. And this is the tricky part because stuffed animals are not always easy to clean. Some of them are too delicate to use a washing machine, some have mechanisms in them and some have details such as glued on eyes or glitter or any other part that will come off if you throw them in the washing machine. But there are some that can totally be washed in the washing machine. And this is the first method we are going to talk about:
free Behavior Clip Charts for HOME
If your children are in school then you are probably already familiar with Behavior Clip Charts. Teachers at our school use them in early elementary.
They work by moving a child's clip up for good behavior and down for poor behavior.
Getting back on a school sleep schedule
A new school year is upon us and once again we are working towards getting our kiddos back on a regular school day schedule. This is the time that all parents are asking themselves...What time do our kiddos need to go to bed in order to feel revived and refreshed for their school day?
Kids doing chores in the NEWS
A survey by Braun Research last year says 82 percent of adults had chores as children, but only 28% of children today have chores and help out around the house.
So that makes me a minority in two ways. Firstly I didn't have chores as a child and secondly my kids do chores today.
NEATLINGS contracts with Advance Opportunities
There are many challenges with starting a small business. One of the more enjoyable challenges is finding ways to keep up with a growing demand.
To date I have personally collated each and every deck of NEATLINGS chore cards, but that is about to change. In total I have collated about 4000 decks of chore cards. Can you imagine? Strangely repetitive work doesn't really phase me too much but I know for many the idea of collating cards, deck after deck, can seem overwhelming and after 4000 it was starting to get to me too not to mention that it is simply time consuming.
Business for kids
Giving kids safe opportunities to learn about business while they are young will help set them up for success in the future.
Keep in mind that the learning experience is valuable whether the business is profitable or not.
Don't let your kids get bored this summer! There is way too much to do!
Do your kids ever get bored? Do they say there is nothing to do?
NEATLINGS has a solution that will make both parents and kids happy!
Let your kiddos do extra chores for rewards! I'm not talking about rewarding them for chores that they should be doing anyway I'm talking about chores that will teach them to go above and beyond. Maybe it is doing laundry, washing windows, cleaning the bathtub or simply wiping down the bathroom counters (great chore for little ones but may require a step stool).
How to use chore cards
Here at NEATLINGS we sell Chore Charts and Chore Cards.
When launching my products only a few short months ago I decided to also offer the chore decks for sale separately. I thought that if someone preferred a different color combination or needed a replacement deck then they would have that option.
To my surprise many people were purchasing the chore cards that had never purchased the
Money Matters: Financial IQ for kids beyond the basics
Like most of us, no one taught me about money when I was young. I would hear phrases like "you need money to make money" or "have your money work for you". Problem was that I grew up with limited resources. How do you get money in the first place so that you can have your money work for you? Then once you have it - how in the world do you make it work for you? These were questions I struggled with for years.
Why other Chore Charts don't Work!
1. Some chores just don't make sense to have done every day.
1. Turn on the tunes and have fun
Good music always helps to get kids energized and put a little hop in their step as they clean to the beat of their favorite tunes. Some good ones that my kids like are:
2. Break larger chores into smaller tasks
Every year I strive to create the perfect holiday memories. Oodles of presents under the tree, yearly picture with Santa, Christmas decorations, participation in the church Christmas program, treats for the reindeer, making ginger bread houses... you get the picture.
