Welcome to Imagination Soup!

Welcome to your vacation destination. If you’re anything like me, you’re not going to the Bahamas for three months, you don’t have the time to be crafty, you don’t read Martha Stewart Living, and you think kids might be able to live on Mac and Cheese, especially if it’s organic.

What to do over the summer with those cute children who are home all day?

Worry no more!

I post easy (emphasis on easy) ideas to do with your children that involve fun, learning, and creativity – and if at all possible, independent of an adult. My posts should make you say, “Oh, I can do this! Easy.” I am a writer, a teacher and a mom, who knows how those long summer days can be crazy-making. I hope, a few ideas from my blog will get you through. And, . . . maybe you won’t worry so much about three months of lost learning because you’ll have some good ideas from me.

So, welcome to Imagination Soup. I’m thrilled to be a part of Mile High Mamas. This is an amazing community of wonderful moms. I can’t wait to meet you and hear your ideas. Please post comments, I read everything.

    My little one is so eager when it comes to creative activities. It will be great to have some ideas to get me out of my “mommas block”! Can’t wait!
