It’s looking like a loooooong time until warm weather hits here in Chicago.  If you’re like me, you are trying to figure out how to keep the kids entertained during the long mostly-indoor winter months.

 

I’ve got two suggestions.  First, print off some coloring sheets from Jabari’s web-site and have your kids enter our coloring contest.  Here’s the link:  https://www.jabariofthewater.com/content/coloring-contest


It’s easy to do.  Just download the coloring sheet to your printer, hand your child some crayons or markers and then scan and upload the image.  Convince your friends and family members to vote for your child’s drawing and you could win two copies of ‘Jabari Makes A Splash’, a fun and whimsical book about water safety for 2-5 year olds.  The first copy is a downloadable copy for you to print on your home printer.  The second copy is a paperback version of the book that I’ll send to the school, preschool, library or day care center of your choice. 

 

Why am I doing this?  Simple - 1-5 year-olds are at the highest risk for drowning.  If we don’t start talking to them about how to be safe in the water while they are young, it could be too late.  If you want to know more, check out the rest of the website:  https://www.jabariofthewater.com/

 

Second suggestion?  Head to your local indoor public pool.  A couple of hours playing in the water pretty much guarantees happy, worn-out kids who crash at the end of the day.  In my house that also guarantees a happy mom.
