What would you do different if you had a second chance at raising your kids?
Take a moment to imagine this. Today, unexpectedly, will be your last. This could very well be the reality. You never know when it could be your last. (I pray that it won’t be.) How would you feel about your parenting if you were done today? Hopefully, today won’t be your last and you’ll have …

Let kids be kids. 

What rules do you break that let kids just be kids?
Kids are told to not run, not jump, and not get dirty all the time. But what do kids want to do? Let kids be kids and break these crazy parenting rules!

Do you have set screen time rules for the kids?

#ad   #OurPact   #kbnmoms   #parenting   #screentime   #technologykids  
This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of OurPact. I realized this summer that I have been way too slack in my parenting. I’ve always taken pride in my hands-off approach to rules. I still do. I’m all about doing hands on activities and teaching kids responsibilities, but never have enforced a …

Saying now to messy play? No more...  #ThisIsHowIClean

A wonderful go-to busy activity, not to mention sensory activity for toddlers, is to set out a tray for flour play! Flour play can be great for learning.

Activities can be sneaked into the day almost anyway -- here's 7 times of the day that we do them - 

#parenting   #ad   #bh  #kbn #kbnmoms  
I always get this question that I don’t know how to answer: Can you provide a schedule of your day that shows when you fit activities into your day? Simple question. A not-so-easy answer. Especially since I share an activity planner that helps you fit those activities in your day, but yet I can’t tell you how to schedule …

Doing activities with my kids. Decorating cakes too.
Introduction
Hi! I'm Jamie. My husband and I have 3 boys, Henry [a preschooler], George [a toddler] and Louis [my baby]. I'm a baker's wife and a hands on mom trying to figure out this parenting thing.

I'm the kid blogger and creator of Hands on : as we grow, a blog all about the kids activities that I do at home with the boys. We're full of energy and excitement and we sneak in learning opportunities wherever we can. But most importantly, we like to have fun with all of it.

I also own a bakery with my husband and decorate cakes! I do wedding cakes, specialty birthday cakes, plus the typical sheet cakes.
