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

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

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

Pink Opal (Heart): All opals have a spherical structure. That is why opals work so well with the emotions - they work their way around issues and flow through the crevices of our protections to get at issues obliquely and less confrontationally. Its easy sometimes to "fend off" some crystals when the emotional issues are painful and we don't want to deal with them. It's impossible to do this with an opal because it just wraps you in its energy and there's no escape. by mindy

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

Family Reunion Ideas Who Am I? Simply write the names of everyone at the reunion on small slips of paper and drop them in a hat. Then have each player draw a name and tape it to someone else’s forehead — without allowing him to see it. Players mix and mingle, asking other participants yes-or-no questions (“Do I have kids?” “Am I taller than you?”) until everyone figures out whose name is taped to his or her forehead. by leanne

great idea for a baby shower is to have loved ones write wishes and sweet messages for the baby on the origami paper, and then fold the up the cranes and build the mobile. The mobile will carry with it all the positivity and sweetness of you and all your friends and family as it hangs out with your little one. by magdalena

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

What an incredible visual reminder to the real power and protection of scripture study. Idea: Print this out for each YW (if you have a small class). Put in an envelope. Seal it. Then, tell all the YW to open their envelope at the same time. Study what they see. (3 mins). Look for as many details as they can and then write what they think this picture is expressing and why. What detail of this picture affected them the most? by maggie
