Raking Leaves is FUN!

After we came back from our long walk at Marland Heights, we decided to rake the leaves in my FIL's front yard.   All of us had so much fun re-scattering all the leaves again lol.  We even involve my FIL to play with us.
Simple things like these can really give a big impact on  child's development because   you are there sharing the joy with them.
It was a good exercise for our lungs as we laughed and laughed until we got  tired.
Our children love outdoors so much and they get  so cranky when we are just at home.  So even during Winter times, we tried to find something that we can do outdoors.  They even love to  shovel snow with us and of course, snow ball fighting  is always the highlight of it.  Sled riding  during snow season is one of our favorite thing to do, they look forward to it every year.  Making snow angels is  an icing on the cake too.  
 There are so many things that we can do with our kids no matter  what season it is.  We just have to  get creative .  It is better than  buying your kids those  high tech gadget where they set all the time  and  play with it.  There is no physical  development contribution in  playing games.  When we were in Korea, we used to go to a small hill near our house.  They love climbing in this small hill.
and slide down, its messy but its fun!

and climbed again lol..

We never have toys growing up but my childhood is full of fun because  my parents were there to play with us all the time.  This is what my husband and I are doing with our own kids.  Spending quality time with them is very important.  When it comes to indoor activities, empty cardboard boxes, loose strings, and other  inexpensive things can really make them  busy and creative.  
I am currently teaching my 4 year old son at home and during our break time, we do things that he love to do like dancing.  I open videos on youtube and we imitate moves of the artists.  We are not  great dancers but  we always have fun because  that is what he likes to do.  Finding the  things that they like is the key to having a happy tot at home.

  15. What wonderful photographs of your beautiful family and the Fall leaves. That last photo is fabulous. I always get a thrill when the children play in the leaves. My daughters used to love doing that when they were small.
