Sometimes life hands us lemons and we get a little down. You never know what will be the thing that puts you or your kids in a bad mood. Maybe they had a hard day at school. Maybe they missed a question on a test they thought they knew. Maybe their friends didn’t include them in something fun. No matter what brings a kid down you can always help bring them back up again. All you need is a little sunshine and a fun idea.
After having my own bad week I thought that both my kids and I could use something fun to cheer us up. That was when I got online to find some new fun activities to cheer us up and I found this incredible blog. mattyangel.com is a blog written and conceived by Matty a 25 year old from New Zealand. Matty is an extraordinary woman, she is an artist, poet, writer, and optimist. She also suffers from Autism, but does she let it stop her from creating, dreaming, and having a great time? Nope! As I said we were having a hard week at my house and seeing this website really inspired me. We do all have bad days, we all have bad things happen to us, but should we let that be the only thing that colors our world? No way! We should all take a moment to look around at the great things in the world, we might just find that we have way more blessings than curses. Matty is determined to do that everyday, and even shares some of those ideas for doing so with her readers. We want to share this great idea, a fun twist on hopscotch that will get everyone laughing and jumping along!!
