5 Minutes for Special Needs — Support. insight. and inspiration for parents of children with special needs


                               

Jennifer Donovan is here to share about a home organizational system aimed to help kids become more independent and self-reliant. This is a sponsored post, but her opinions are her own.

I’ve outlined some of the features about the M.O.M. Method that I love, over in my post at 5 Minutes for Mom about how to teach your kids self-reliance.

This is universal product that all families can benefit from, although the creators have found a particular niche use as well for kids with special needs including attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder, Asperger’s Syndrome or executive functioning challenges.

The time management and task management programs give kids the stability and consistency they seek, and what’s even better, it puts them in the responsible role, removing you from the tough taskmaster position.

Find out more information about the M.O.M. method 30 Day Challenge in my post at 5 Minutes for Mom.

We just finished another cute craft from Kiwi Crate this week.

This week it was paper jellyfish with glow stickers. They turned out really cute and the kids can make them travel up and down on pull strings attached to the back. They had great fun racing their creations up and down the patio door!

Hope you’ve been having a great week!

I decided to try something new in the crafts department with the kiddos – I signed them up for 6 months with Kiwi Crate.

They were so excited with our first crate that came this past week! It came with their names on the box and featured “glow creatures”. They decided to make the glow worms first.

The 11-year-old came back from a visit to her grandparents with a surprise…

A lovely acrylic painting of a mountain on canvas. I am told that she worked really hard on it and that she chose a mountain especially for me because of my love for snow and the mountains.

We plan on taking it to the craft store to find a frame for it very soon!
