REVIEW: Wondercrates Box
Where do we even begin..... to say the kids loved this subscription box would be an understatement. As soon as we opened the box, the kids couldn't wait to tear open the paper to get what was inside.
One of the amazing items inside this box is this special book. As my babies get older, instilling some good values, respect, confidence, kindness and empathy are just a fraction of things I want my kiddos to have. This book Stand in My Shoes, is all about teaching your kids about empathy, this book teaches young children the value of noticing how other people feel. Empathy leads to the social skills and personal relationships which make our lives rich and beautiful, and it is something we can help our children learn.
Can you see how excited my love bug was when she saw this special pink super hero cape. She immediately ripped the wrapping open and put it on. She even helped her little brother put his special cape on.
The thoroughly enjoyed the capes. Here they are posing and pretending to fly around and as my little guy said "Save the day like PJ masks". My little guy loved imitating what his sister was doing.

This one activity is my kids FAVE. They love being able to draw different faces on the whiteboard. We read out the different scenarios about why a kid may feel sad, happy, mad, etc. And it asks us WHY? a great activity to get the kiddos minds to think about how someone else may feel.
With kids nowadays..... I know cause I am guilty of it, but having your child feel entitled and giving them everything they want (nothing wrong with that) but when they are so use to getting their way, having everything they want and feeling like they can do no wrong, can go sideways real fast. Instilling some empathy, kindness and love into our children is the first step in helping our kids want to make this world a better place. Empathy boosts resilience. It is the key to forming the healthy relationships that impact our kids' mental health. And empathy is and will be a key skill in the job market.
