Take something from your children to your life on site

The best present that I can get from my children is something they made themselves. It could be artwork, a pop stick storage box or a decorated container. Educational Art supplies have these for sale and it is fun to do with the kids and even more fun to see the enjoyment they get from your appreciation.

If you drop hints that you want something and they can make it, you make them feel appreciated. Take the item to your worksite, hotel room or home, and make sure they know you are using it – they will feel even better.
