No matter what you want to call it, one thing is for sure, we are all looking for fun ideas to help challenge, educate, and stimulate the minds of our kids while they are at home during this season.
As a mom of four rambunctious boys ages 9 months to 5 years, I’m feeling the exhaustion of working full-time while also being the teacher, chef, and professional nap-time storyteller. Are you like me - feeling so exhausted you're not even sure if you’re awake or asleep and dreaming right now? I feel you.
And as a family working in missions full-time, my husband and I are passionate about continuing to find ways to be missional with our kids while at home.
With that in mind, we’ve put together a list of ideas to help you as you navigate this time, where you may find yourself with more opportunities to pour into your kids and bring a global perspective to your kitchen table.
The mission field provides an invaluable education for kids, whether they are a toddler just beginning to grasp the concept of servanthood or if they are a teenager diving deep into the concept that God is a God of the nations. Immersing into different cultures, stepping outside of comfort zones and connecting with the global Church are just a few bullet points on the laundry list of amazing lessons to be found on the mission field - for adults and kids alike!
It’s no secret that these are crazy times and that parents everywhere are feeling the pull of managing everything on their plates - no matter your specific dynamic, know you aren’t alone. With a little creativity and a lot of encouragement from each other, we’ll make it through this together.
