Why I'm Okay with my Kids Being Bored

My best memories of childhood happened when I was free to explore and figure out what I was interested in. I needed time to do that. I needed to be given the chance to be bored.

Although I would love for her to join me, she is fifteen months old and not quite ready for big girl paint. Edible Finger paint is a great safe way to let her explore her creativity!
