A Sprinkling of Magic

Social media is blowing up right with two things: updates on the Coronavirus or ways to distract yourself from the Coronavirus.

I have seen so many posts, articles, blogs, tidbits and tweets about homeschooling.

  • How to do it
  • Why not to do it
  • How to educate and teach without worrying about homeschooling
  • How much learning time you should give your kids a day
  • Samples of schedules

It goes on.

We are finding our own way, and we hope you are too.

I was taking a quick scroll through my news feed the other day when I saw a post a friend in Calgary shared.

The idea is simple: paint a rainbow and hang it in your window.

It creates an I-Spy game (or a scavenger hunt) for people out getting a bit of a fresh air. It says “Hello!” to the people you can’t be physically close to right now. And, of course, it gives the Rugrats something to do!

I shared it to our local school’s parents group and sort of waited to see what it did. It’s had a bit of pick up, and I’m excited!

We live right next to a walking and biking path, so today we made rainbows for the windows. Next week we are going to head out for a little walk (while maintaining social distancing!) and see if we can spot any rainbows.

We’re doing what we can to make the world a little brighter, and a little more magical.
