Although it feels like the COVID-19 pandemic has already lasted forever, realistically it is looking like it will last even longer. To avoid falling into a rut during the winter months, try to pick up a new hobby. Even if you only do it for a month and end up not liking it, there is no harm in trying new things. As a parent, it's important to show your kids that even adults can do things for fun, and the fun doesn't stop once you grow up. Here are six hobbies to pick up today (some of which you can even do with your kids).
As the start of summer fast-approaches, it's a prime time to "Get Caught Reading!" As such, The Jim Henson Company recently teamed-up with the Association of American Publishers (AAP) to offer a pair of new "Get Caught Reading" Posters - available FREE to educators or anyone (+ $5 s/h) - featuring the DOOZERS and ENCHANTED SISTERS. These new posters join a trio of earlier releases from The Jim Henson Company, including characters from PBS KIDS' DINOSAUR TRAIN and SID THE SCIENCE KID, along with the Sprout/NBC Kids hit, PAJANIMALS. To celebrate the new offerings, and the start of summer, THE ROCK FATHER Magazine and The Jim Henson Company will be getting a couple of readers set-up with copies of ENCHANTED SISTERS: SUMMER'S FRIENDSHIP GAMES, the latest book in the ENCHANTED SISTERS series from Bloomsbury Children's Publishing!
