It's Really True That We're All in This Together
Thinking of fun ways to entertain the kids can be tough, but never fear, some of our favorite celebrity moms (and Velveteen fans) are also at home, hanging out with their kids full time, just like us. Check out how they’re making the most of what home has to offer their kids this Spring.
Let's Take Jessica Alba for Example
Jessica Alba has been getting back to basics with fun activities that feed the spirit as well as help her kids maintain a healthy lifestyle. Staying fit has always been a priority for this 38-year-old mother of three. And, as Jessica Alba said to her Instagram follower, “Having fun with my girls is everything right now!”
She’s getting the whole family, dad included, to join in livingroom workouts led by instructors on home workout apps. Everyone joins Mom in musical upbeat routines that keep them moving and feeling refreshed.
Alba has also been using the time to teach the girls how to care for their delicate skin. Home facials made from items found around the house like oatmeal, salt, honey, and coconut oil, add a little silliness as masking can! It’s a really great time to practice a new skin routine and get in one habit that kids will thank Mom for teaching them later in life.
Other family fun has included playing games in the family’s backyard. Dad and 2-year-old son, Hayes practice pitch hitting with a toy baseball and bat. It’s never to early to learn! And Haven films the coaching session. One morning, the girls worked together to create a tea party inspired brunch complete with homemade scones, sandwiches, and a stawberry jam.
Kim Kardashian, Believe it or Not, Is just so Normal..
Kim Kardashian is showing her kids that she’s with them on sticking to good study habits. She helps her six-year-old daughter, North with her school work, choosing from themes like Elsa and Sonic the Hedgehog that make learning fun. And she’s modeling good study behavior because she does her own law school coursework beside her student!
Kim’s also practicing hairstyles on her girls who love to get pretty and are happy to model their new do. Her family created an evening adventure, going frog watching with flashlights in the backyard. Changing up the setting with this fun and competitive “frog hunt” in the middle of the night added variety and a little excitement.
Kim’s sister, Kourtney has encouraged her kids to slow down and mindfully enjoy spending time together. Her kids are meditating and reading books in calmer times. More lively favorite activities include baking, dancing around the kitchen to their favorite music and playing dress-up. Nothing beats a home fashion show where it’s much easier to get a front-row seat and an autograph from the models.
Jessica Simpson is that Billionaire Next Door Practicing the New Normal. Just like us..
Jessica Simpson’s brew is enjoying nice weather swimming in the family pool and eating some of mama’s favorite home-cooked family recipes.
The family of six celebrated Birdie Mae’s first birthday on March 19th with an intimate family pajama party. Sleeping in a different room of the house breaks up the routine and makes any night feel special.
Simpson is using the time to do Spring cleaning. Her kids can join in with safe jobs like sweeping and dusting. She showers them with “thank you’s” that make them feel like part of a team.
Cleaning out the clothes closet is another totally kid-safe activity. And now is a perfect time to get your kids involved in donating their outgrown, gently worn clothing. They’ll learn the importance of giving and kindness. And the added closet space will make way for the fun new styles of Spring and Summer!
