Homemade Dumpling Fun with Kids

Making dumpling with kids is pretty much the same as making edible play doh! We did homemade play doh earlier this month for a school assignment and little did I realize how both doughs use the same ingredients, salt, flour and water–except dumpling wrappers uses warm or hot water and play doh uses room temperature water. All you need is flour, salt, hot water, kid friendly knife, cutting boards , rolling pins with the filling of your choice! Cute aprons totally optional! A great way to bond as a family and kids get hands one, real life hands in learning! Plus, the mini cutting boards and rolling pins can work for so many other things and I plan Rn do them all with the kids–pizza, pupusas, samosas, tortillas and more!

LEGO Play!

How often do you stop and truly PLAY with your child(ten)? I encourage you to stop what you are doing at least once this month to just play! You will see your kids’ face light up, like never before. You, their parent who is usually working or cooking, cleaning or folding; it’s the most intriguing and endearing thing to them to see you laugh, be creative and play like a kid ! You are their role model. You are the person your child looks up to; their first teacher; their inspiration. What are you telling/ showing your child when you stop what you’re doing to play with them ? How does that make them feel? How does that make you feel?
