Lego Organizers For Your Kids

Summer is here. Kids are at home. It’s fun and challenging at times. Disorganized toys and legos are for sure all over the place. We all are learning & finding ways to keep our kids organized when and while they are working with their favorite LEGO creations at home.

Have you experienced that sharp pain as you accidentally step over a lego? Have you or your kid get frustrated finding that one piece on their creative activity. We have at our home. Lego time was more about hunting for the pieces than building.

After hours of research, I was glad to find one of the IRIS USA, Inc products. Works excellent for our 5-year-old. We sorted by shape for easy lookup. It’s working great and she absolutely needs no help from us. It takes her seconds to find that next piece!!

If you purchase this and find it useful, please leave a comment for other parents like you.

Cooperative Board Games for Little Kids

These pandemic days are challenging for parents to keep kids engaged and off from the screen. After research, I found some interesting activities that help kids & parents to learn their emotions when things don’t work their way. Parents can support their emotional growth by catching it right away and providing feedback.

The interesting part of it is we can identify frustration and emotions of beginner little players who are brand new to board games. We can use these to teach them so much!

Here are a few things that board games help my kid to understand – it’s okay to lose or win, you do not win always, persistence is important and it is important to finish what you start and there are rules to follow.

Here are few board games that worked with us and our friends & family
