Most parents have a strong desire to raise their children to be good people. We want them to be kind, to share, to say please & thank you without reminder. We want them to have good manners. How do we teach our kids how to have good manners? The best way I have found is through example. Sometimes teaching our kids a life lesson can be as easy as bringing them into the kitchen. We made this Marshmallow Popcorn with the intent to share it.

How To Make Marshmallow Popcorn + A Simple Sharing Lesson For Kids

How simple acts of kindness can make a person’s day without a huge amount of effort. It’s a simple activity that speaks volumes if explained right.
