Hey, Mama – I’m Sarah,
Have you ever fallen asleep thinking: 

...tomorrow, it will be different. 

And you believed that with your whole heart, but by 9 am you’ve already had it? The meltdowns. The tantrums. The whining. The sibling squabbles. This is not what you envisioned being a mom would be like! You want to make their childhood beautiful, magical, and wholesome. But HOW?

I was there too, Mama. But I found the way.

I used to wake up dreading the day ahead. In fact, I let this go on much too long. As an educator I know how important my relationships with my children are. I knew it was up to me to improve things – I owed it to my beautiful children. I knew things were getting bad. I knew their behaviour was getting worse and worse. My dreams of a lovely, nurturing, peaceful childhood for them were vanishing by the day.

But I didn’t know what to do about it.
The day it all changed for me … and how it will for you too.
One day, I decided I was going to make things change. I remember laying in bed feeling so sad. So exhausted and deflated. I remember so vividly thinking, “tomorrow I will do one thing, one single thing, to begin making things better.”

And I did.

That car was loaded up by 8:30 the next morning with the kids – snowsuits and all. Nothing was stopping me this time. Out to the library we all went where I gathered every single ‘Gentle Parenting’, ‘Attachment Parenting’ and ‘Waldorf Parenting’ book I could.

I devoured those books. And the next batch too.

I grew empowered. Empowered to change my current situation.

And I did.

The two key things that changed everything?  Quiet Time and Connecting Time. 

Now I have shared with you a lot about quiet time in my other eBooks. All about how to make it run smooth and easy. But for quiet time to work – for it to be fully embraced, we also need Connecting Time.

I started implementing these things, giving our days a peaceful rhythm and everything changed.

They changed!

I soldiered on, digging right in, clinging to this nurturing rhythm, clinging to quiet time and connecting time and the wholesome, lovely days I dreamed of emerged.

I was empowered and transformed my days into the days I dreamt about.

Now, it is my turn to empower you!

Introducing the Connecting Activities Ebook!
The 40+ fun, simple activities in this ebook will give you everything you need to engage the whole family in a loving, positive way.
  • Without electronics
  • ​Without a lot of prep work
  • ​Without a big mess to clean up afterward
  • ​Without carving special time out of your already busy schedule
  • ​​Despite the weather - or in celebration of it!
In my family, we’ve noticed a dramatic change in our children and in our family dynamics since we began intentionally spending Connecting Time together:
  • A  decrease in poor behavior
  • A​n increase in respect for each other and ourselves
  • ​A demonstrated improvement in sportsmanship
  • ​​An increase in our enjoyment of each other
  • ​And stronger bonds between us and the kids - and among the kids themselves
And the best part about our Connecting Time? My husband and I actually enjoy the activities, too! 

Connecting Activities are Simple, Fun, and Great for All Ages.
The Key to Connecting Time?
Integrate Connecting Time Into Your Existing Activities!

  • We loved going on nature walks in the woods - but they were more fun when we added in a scavenger hunt!

  • ​When it was cold and rainy outside, we didn’t just put together a jigsaw puzzle - we had a puzzle hunt!

  • ​When they want to draw together, we don’t just draw side-by-side - we collaborate on a single drawing!

Praise for Sarah's Other Ebooks
"As a work-at-home mom, this was a life saver for myself as well as my little girl. Our family does not watch TV nor do we have one in our home, because we believe that there is too much to learn and experience in life. These quiet bins were (and still are) the perfect activity for my little girl while I have to do my work. I love that she can sit next to me 100% engaged in a learning activity while being hands-on, and I can be the creepy mom staring at her in awe. I also love that when I take my breaks we are able to play together (she loves to teach me or tell me what to do with certain items)! This book is a must for any mom who is looking to limit their child's screen time and giving them a world to learn and explore! <3 HIGHLY RECOMMEND!"
ASHLEIGH SQUIRES
"As a child development specialist I highly recommend this book to every early childhood educator and parents with young children. It is brimming with a plethora of easy-to-create, hands-on activities that promote active learning through play."
LAURIE MONOPOLI
"... I love how they are used when you need a time of quiet and this easily replaces having your child in front of a screen to keep them busy. I read through the whole book and felt that I could really do any/all of the activities because all of the materials I already have on hand. I like simple or it doesn't get done..."
