Hang A Heart!

Happy Math & Music Monday!

How is everyone holding up?  I am such a mixture of emotions… if I’m telling the truth!  I am so very grateful for this time with my family and our health, and yet at the same time there are moments that I am just so sad.  So, I’m really working to find ways that we can give back, say thank you, be an encourager and/or add value to others!  Focusing on that seems to get me out of my sadness or funky mood. 

Fun Quote

“Be the change you wish to see in the world” – Gandhi

I love this quote.  It’s the perfect quote for this week’s blog.  This quote is such a great reminder to me because sometimes things aren’t easy, but totally worth it.  We just have to have perseverance, not quit, and do the next right thing. Right now, one of the “next right things” is to stay home!  We must stay home for those who can’t.  We can also find small ways to show our support for those who are working hard to keep us safe and healthy.  

This week on instagram, I saw a really neat idea from someone I follow, @cottonstem.  If you aren’t following her, you should!  She did an activity with her girls called “Hang a Heart.”  It’s a small way we can show support for all the healthcare workers who are working so hard right now.  So I thought it would be a fun project to do with our girls! 

Love love love this!

All you need is some paper, tape and scissors! That’s it!  

Then make a heart, or several, and hang them on your window to show your support!

Step: 1 - Get some paper (we picked red and pink) and make your pattern. Then using some tape... tape the papers together.
Sister P - wanted to make a "lego" heart.
Step 2: (if needed) Draw your heart.
Step: 3 Cut out the heart.
Then it's time to hang them in the window!!
