This is one of my fav blogs and the young autistic girl that owns it writes the most amazing children's stories and poems. My kids love them there is some really heart felt bits of writing
Anyway, they went out to the end of their drive and drew a kind of cute chalk obstacle course for the children and parents walking home from schools to play on. Recently her city had its 1 year anniversary since a major earthquake and she hoped that the children and parents would smile walking by.
My youngest would love to find this walking home from school, am so going to steal it and get the kids to help me draw one out by our drive. Would be such a cool fun way to teach them numbers and little things.
She posted in a message board I go to that chalk was the best Christmas present she ever got... don't you just love how something simple can open someone's mind?
LOL excuse my half-bad grammar its late and I'm tired
I dunno, I think it belongs in general parenting myself! What a cool idea. I bet my daughter would love to do that.
I figured it out!!! I keep thinking about this cause I thought this would be a kind of game that would include that 6 year old in that thread about bullying, and maybe allow him to join in. CLICK. I knew there was a reason I was posting this. Now to go post a link to here, in there.
I love this idea! I can't wait till spring to try this out on my street. We have lots of kids around here and they all play outside and will LOVE this.
I just saw they posted this and I just posted it on facebook. Amazing idea! http://mattyangel.com/2012/02/24/the-enjoy-life-initiative
