Educational and Enriching…
Meaning, don’t be fooled into thinking an activity can’t be enriching. I think we as parents sometimes fall into the idea that if something is fun, it can’t be enriching. Just like when it comes to food—if it tastes good, it can’t be healthy!
But, there is definitely a balance that can be struck, with plenty of fun activities being enriching and “nourishing” for our kids.
