Christmas Activities To Keep The Kids Busy

As a daycare owner I know how hard it can be to keep little ones busy and learning all through the cold months of winter. I have been doing research and creating with my little ones for over 10 years now so we are always welcoming new ideas and fun activities into our schedule. I have found that keeping a very thought out and well planned routine helps get through each and every day without any issues.  Take a look at these great  free printables  you can use to create some Christmas magic!! We learn through play here so adding fine motor, sensory, reading, and discovery to our days is a must. Creating age appropriate activities is always a challenge if you have a large group of different ages. Keep it simple and encourage the big kids to help the little kids with their activities and they will have a lot more fun!  This week we did the 5 senses with pasta and it was a huge hit.  See   Watch how the pasta changes when it is cooked and how the ingredients turn into a dough, then a noodl

Everything starts from a dot: Master the orgasmic multiverse

LELO DOT™  delivers intuitive strength and intensity to teach us the art of connecting the pleasure dots in our bodies to create an intricate sensation that is an orgasm. Time and time again.   Despite its simplicity, a single dot represents a fundamental starting point of everything that surrounds us. Additional dots can be added and the initial dot expanded to enhance things and experiences. Still, starting from that single dot, the possibilities for where you take it from there are endless.   Pleasure also starts at a single point, a pleasure centre, when energy proceeds to radiate throughout the body. Travelling from the source in the form of energy, it beats on the outer edges of the body and reverses its path, returning to where it started, thus creating an infinite sequence. Building on this as an inspiration,  LELO  created a true first in the world of delights, the  DOT™ . My Naughty Thoughts! Mind blown once again! The LELO DOT is “dot on” with focus on the “dot” this little

How Childhood Trauma Can Affect Adulthood

  " Happy families  are all alike; every unhappy family is unhappy in its own way." - is the first sentence of Leo Tolstoy's masterpiece, Anna Karenina. And Tolstoy was right. The variety of nonintentional (and sometimes intentional) childhood wounding is, in a word, astounding. The tricky part? The more subtle the wound, the more it eludes us. Understanding where our intricate personality comes from becomes our little white whale, forever unattainable.  The wounds we carry are often undetectable, even under the inner microscope. It's a lingering sensation, more than a cognition. "Something's wrong." - but that's as deep as we go. And we let it pass. We bury it somewhere, in the farthest compartments of the mind. The thing is, as adults, we seldom have any recollection of the inflicted trauma. Trauma is an admirable sculptor, and sooner or later, its masterful hands will shape us. This is how childhood trauma can affect adulthood. Unresolved trauma S

Alice In Wonderland Wedding Ideas

I choose to create a Camouflage, Skull, and Alice In Wonderland themed wedding. It turned out absolutely gorgeous and was everything I had dreamed of.  There were so many ideas I could have incorporated to create the best Alice In Wonderland themed wedding but I had such an amazing venue I didn’t need to take it to the extremes.

Fun Activities In Kelowna & West Kelowna To Celebrate Birthdays

Our youngest turned 10 and we celebrated his special day by enjoying some of the best our wonderful city has to offer! It can be really hard to choose gifts for a 10 year old boy these days, especially when they have so much already.  Troy decided he wanted to spend the day with his family and enjoy some of the greatest activities for kids his age.  First we went to  H2O Adventure & Fitness Centre  and swam for a few hours. They have an amazing wave pool, small kids splash park, waterslides, diving boards, lane swimming, the lazy river and hot tubs for you to splash around in! We had a great time swimming together. After we swam we went to  Scandia Golf & Games  for some awesome arcade games! They have quite a bit to offer the community, lots of arcade games with a ticket program to get prizes, indoor and outdoor mini golf, batting cages, go karts, and a small concession for when you get thirsty.  After that Troy decided he wanted to have a tasty fish & chips dinner from  C
