I Wish...

Children of all ages love to
hear family stories. Here's a fun
project to help them learn more
about yours.
All you will need is a tape
recorder, a blank tape or two and
some willing relatives.
Start the tape with the grand
matriarch or patriarch of the
family, so the story will go back
as far back as possible (It's nice
to keep it in some order, if that
can- be worked out).
If the child's great-grandpar-
ents are living, you could begin
with them. Ask them to tell a lit-
tle about how they met, what life
was like in the land of their birth,
what it was like when they came
to America, how they feel about
being Jewish now. When they
are done, ask them to send the
tape to their oldest child, and he
can start where they finished,
talking about important mo-
ments in his own life. Then he
can send it to a brother or sister,
or to one of his children, or to an
aunt or a cousin. Keep record-
ing until everyone who wants to
has had a chance to talk.
When the tape is complete,
give it to your child (if you have
a few photos of family mem-
bers, too, it can help tell the sto-
ry.) It's especially fun to listen
to the tape when headed for
bed, the comforting voices of
family holding your child in safe
arms as he drifts into sleep.


uring the next several camping this
weeks, ask your child to summer," or
write down a wish on a "I wish we

He can use his imagination, Sunday."
Place all
but shouldn't go too crazy. ("I
wish I could have a chocolate the "wish
bar" is fair; "I wish I could have cards" into
a trip to Disney World right a box, then
now" is not going to work.) And put in a fa-
while your child can include vorite spot

phasis should be on activities Once a week, or once a day, or
and quality-time projects, such however often you like, let
as, "I wish my mother would your child pull out one of the
play cards with me for one full wish cards — then do what's
hour tonight," or, "I wish my fa- written. Do not, under any cir-
ther would read me my favorite cumstance, let your child pull
book before I go to sleep," or "I a wish unless you are prepared
wish we could make plans to go to fulfill it that moment. A

"I wish Dad and I could go

steadfast rule of the game is
that the parent is there to
make his child's dream come
true right away.

Art In A Box

n a dreary, rainy day
there's nothing more
fun than an art kit.
You can find them al-
ready complete at some chil-
dren's stores, but it's a lot more
fun to make your own.
First, get in the car and vis-
it your favorite discount or
craft supply store. Then take
a walk outside. Find small
items that can be glued to pa-
per. Look around your house,
too. Use your imagination
while on the hunt. Some ideas:
magic markers



They aren't ready yet to
be fryin' up any eggs or
boilin' some grits, but
younger children love to
cook. You can help them be
little chefs (and usually oc-
cupy them for quite a while)
with just a few simple in-
Prepare bowls with
raisins, M&Ms, nuts,
grapes, Cheerios, chocolate
chips and other tiny taste
treats. (Be mindful, of
course, of the age of your
budding Galloping
Gourmet. Younger children
can choke on small foods.)
Then give your little cook
her own empty bowls and
spoons and tell her to come
up with a new food sensa-
tion. She can mix just one
or two of the ingredients,
but preferably (it's more fun
this way) all of them, in
whatever combination she
can think up.
When the mixture is per-
fected, fill little bags (cloth
or plastic), tie with a ribbon
and deliver to friends.

You may already have emp-
ty squirt bottles around the
house. If not, you can find them
at your favorite hardware or
discount store. All you have to
do is fill them water — then
take aim and fire away!
You and your children will
have fun squirting each other

for a long time. You can play
squirt tag, or hide-and-go-seek
squirt (whoever does the find-
ing gets to do the squirting), or
just chase each other around
the basement.
OK, so it gets the carpet and
furniture wet. They'll dry.

Your next stop should be the
hardware store, to buy one of
those small, handy cabinets
