You and your little genius has been in the home now for at least a week. A wonderful way to break the monotony is to tap into your inner child.

Remember what it was like playing games like castle… make pretend… or even tag. Throw the rules away and put caution to the wind.  Here is a list of fun and simple games that will allow you to let loose. I guarantee, you and your little geniuses will have a ton of fun!

  • Red Rover:
    • Two teams line up opposite each other, no more than 30 feet apart. The first team agrees to call one player from the opposite team, and chants, “Red RoverRed Rover, send (player’s name) on over!” The person called runs to the other line and attempts to break the chain (formed by the linking of hands)
  • Castle:
    • Save your little genius from a firy dragon! Take a toy and make it the enemy. Run through the house and pretend that you are doing everything you can to save the prince or princesses life.
  • Tea Party:
    • This is a great game when you want a calm environment. Put on something “ Fancy” and take out your tea cups. Sit, Pretend, and Sip
  • Tick Tac Toe
    • Make the game big by using blankets as the rows and pillows as the X’s and O’s
  • Home Olympics
    • Have your little genius run around the couch, jump zig zag through the kitchen, do a cartwheel at the front door.

What every you do, have some fun! The children will burn some energy and you will relieve some stress!

Let Loose

inspiration, life, SLiM Life

Am I the only one on this planet that must use extreme self-control when their song comes on? Currently I am in school and from time to time I must walk across campus, so of course, I am listening to music while doing so. When the music starts, I feel as if I have injected energy into my veins! It takes everything in me to just walk… I want to strut, flail my hands, stomp and more. Then, when my favorite line comes, I want to sing it as loud as I can, but… that is not what’s acceptable so what do I do????

I just walk, but just know, if you see me with headphones on, I am internally breaking it down!

Life is meant to be enjoyed. I know this topic is silly but it’s honest. We can spend so much of our life living “conveniently” or “properly” let us not forget how to dance too. I challenge you today to have a moment that breaks barriers. Have fun, laugh at yourself, dance and be free to do what makes you happy! Selah
