10 Ways to Make Today Magical

I have to make this quick, as we’re leaving early tomorrow morning for a couple of days out of town and I still have to finish packing.

We’re off to a nearby city for a sledding party tomorrow (complete with plans to build a giant snow alligator with green spray water!) and then on Tuesday the girls and I are attending a children’s writing conference while the boys hang out with Daddy, Grandma and Grandpa.  It should be a fun couple of days.

So in the spirit of being quick, today’s list of ways to make the day magical are all quick too!

Note:  Just because these are quick and easy for us grown ups does not mean they don’t still add magic to a child’s day!

  1. Blow bubbles.  Billions.  Set up a fan to help, if you can.
  2. Give hugs and kisses all day long.  With every one, say another reason you adore your child.
  3. Bring your child flowers.
  4. Play hide and seek.
  5. Plant seeds in eggshell halves.
  6. Have a tea party.
  7. Play with matchbox cars together.
  8. Go rock hunting.
  9. Make paper dolls from cardstock and old magazines.  Alternately, make paper monsters or paper robots (put on a car head, interchangeable torsos and so on).
  10. Go puddle stomping!

And with that, chickadees, I’m off!  Have a magical week!
