Setting an effective goal means finding the right balance in pushing yourself to grow. Set your goal too high and you might get discouraged.

I love a good game that’s not only fun but that also engages my brain as well; this game does that for all ages!

For younger children, it’s a creative take for daily spelling practice (read to the end for a variation that allows you to use weekly spelling words)!
Creating domino runs is a classic go-to activity for any occasion. I made them as a child, and I’ve made them with my nephews. But you know what I don’t think I’ve done until now? Made them multilevel! It’s such a simple way to add an extra level of interest to this favorite pastime.
