Deployment ideas for kids- cover a cereal box with paper, and attach it to the wall and kids can draw pictures or write notes to Daddy. Whenever you mail out something to him, collect whatever is in the box too. It's a great way for kids to sort thru the emotions of deployment. by natalie-w

Standing Plate Rotation - Targets shoulders & core. Standing on the Bosu ball helps with muscle stability for your whole body. Start with feet shoulder width apart & plate above head with arms slightly bent. Slow & controlled, rotate the plate over head (like a coin) 10-15 times one way & then switch direction. 3 sets.  If you're doing it right, you'll feel it in your shoulders & core. If you ever watch HBO's 24/7, a lot of boxers do this workout.  #123fitness - @Lara Mirasol- #webstagram by ida

DIY gifts for him or her! I just made this for my boyfriend for Christmas. Paint a box, print out some pictures to fit in it (mine are all Instagram posts) and then write the date and a memory or comment on the back of each picture. What good are photos if they aren't being printed out and shared!? It's a great way to remember all the good times you share, plus you can continually add more. I glued the heart on top and added our first initials :) by polly

You need as many Post-its as problems you will give, a Sharpie marker, and a pencil. Write the the first problem on the front of a Post-it note at the start (maybe this one is a different color). Now write the answer on another Post-it with a new problem on the underneath (in pencil). Students have to work problems and then search for the answers. Great way to get students doing math and get them up and moving! by maggie

Coming into this world with the assignment of Lightworker is not easy at times. It's the most amazing gift and honor to be able to help others, that's why we're here. The ability to facilitate for others is first born through our own triumphs over the lessons our souls need. Go within and connect with your Highest Self and your Source. Make it a priority to do so in whichever way works for you. Then you will be able to stay the strong Healer and Warrior of Light that You are. ♥ by proteamundi

Truly & honestly some of THE. MOST. helpful parenting solutions I have ever read. My final thought to share is the fact that the best way that kids learn is by being taught, not by being punished.  When is the last time a teacher put a child in time-out because he didn’t get a math answer correct or couldn’t tie his shoes?  It simply doesn’t happen.  Why, then, do we think that it would work any better for behaviors?  Great ideas on handling "big emotions." by michael

It's just a sheet of (recycled) notebook paper in a cheap frame.  We keep it in our master bathroom and use it to write little love notes back and forth to each other nearly every day.  You can also fancy it up with scrapbook paper, but I went the tree saving root with a little less dye.  You can also just write on the mirror in dry erase marker, but I always feel guilty erasing MacGyver's beautiful words when I need to do my hair. by Kharis

'MY HUSBAND WON'T TALK WITH ME!' What do you do? Many men who shut down when asked personal questions about their feelings do so because they don’t know the answer and they feel stupid and shamed. Instead of reflecting why they don’t know or figuring out how to find out, they lash out and blame the person who made them feel that way. -Leslie Vernick by maggie

How to use beauty blender: I run one under luke warm water (not hot/not cold) till it gets darker pink then squeeze out the water until the Blender isnt dripping. I try to squeeze out as much water as possible! It will double in size when wet. I prefer using it wet because it soaks up less of your foundation and helps blend better. Then i apply dots of foundations evenly all over my face then go in with the blender and press lightly to blend. The finish is FLAWLESS which is why i love it so by lilly

It turns out you don’t have to buy a dozen Scrabble games to do this project; You can buy a pack of 100 tiles for less than $5 on Amazon. This opens up so many possibilities! I love the way these Scrabble Tile coasters turned out, and you can customize them with different words. Maybe even use blank tiles (or the back) to make spaces in between words to write a message. by janet

Next, say that you are a math mind reader and you can predict the sum of the four numbers they choose. Pretend to think, then, write the number down and put it in your pocket. by rachelle

First, you got to figure out who you are. No, like, really listen to yourself. Who ARE YOU? Once you figure that out - go and pursue your passion. Take risks. Let yourself fall in love with your passion, with the things you have, with the people around you. Stop making those excuses. Stop being so scared of making mistakes. Go live your life. All I want...is for you to be happy. And only you can do that - no one else. by Amba09
