This Halloween, encourage their wild side! From lions, tigers and bears, oh my! to T-Rexes and dragons, Go Fun Face! offers a variety of fun, high-quality animal masks for children, tweens, teens and beyond. Not only are these masks perfect for Halloween, playtime, dress up, birthday parties, costume parties, school spirit, and more; but also they promote dramatic and inventive play, a key factor in early childhood development.
These are not your every day party store masks. Go Fun Face! masks consist of a foam rubber material, making them soft, durable, and easy to wash. They are patented with one-of-a-kind, artistic designs that will have children roaring like lions. Why is dramatic play so important? It fosters social skills, imagination, and empathy through pretending to be someone or something they are not. This later results in tolerance and acceptance in the real world. Currently, Go Fun Face! has seventeen animals and mythical creature to choose from including wolf, tiger, bear, lion, elephant, t-rex, shark, dragon, monkey, bull, and more. Many of which come in different color combinations. Masks retails for $22 and up. For more information, visit https://www.gofunface.comand check out their Facebookand Instagram.
When we moved to some ranch lands last year I knew I was going to give the children their own garden areas. This was a for a few reasons.
1. I wanted them to have their own space
2. I wanted them to connect to nature and their food
3. I wanted them to have the responsibility of caring for plants
4. Honestly, I didn’t want them to mess up my garden.
What I didn’t expect was for their garden to take of and thrive the way it did. Honestly, their garden is way lusher and healthier than my own and much more pleasant to be in.
Why? Love. they have nothing but love for their garden. It is all new and exciting, not one part of it feels like a chore to them. They love to watch it grow, the love to take care of it, and they love to get lost in their imaginations in it.
Wherever life has landed you, I encourage you to find a way to let your children loose in a garden- even if its a few pots or joining a community garden.
