Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 19, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Herald- Family The homemaker What mother has never been confronted by Unit plaintive upturned face several of stating nothing to there's nothing to More often than the de- mand reaches its highest pitch on just those days when everything else is going wrong. It's snowing and cold outside. A mother is behind in her the supper still to be planned and cooked. She's tired and wherever she a discontented child is under- foot. I hope some of these ideas will be of benefit to you as mothers. I have tried to pick those that would be easy to set and usually would not require undivided attention to help. A young child probably prefers such as pots and and boxes and milk cartons to store bought toys. These things are part of his daily life and he longs to reach out and experi- ment with them. he sees his mother using them so he wants to use too. Let them or in some cases help you with your easier daily receive real satisfaction from helping mom. If you're and would like them to play by themselves you might like to try some of these ideas. 1 Soap your child a plastic drinking straw and a cup an empty juice filled with soap flakes and water. Children two and a half and older can learn to not if you show them how. Since the cup is bound to it is best to use a tray under it. To make bubbles tough enough to float in the air without add a tiny bit of cooking oil to the soap- and-water mixture. The outdoors or a basement are good places for soap bubbles. 2 is a French name for an artistic composi- tion that's pasted together. Give your child a paper bag in half and pressed and let him paste on things like dry puffed colored paper pictures from old fluffy scraps of colored large new HUxhenRW Portable buy one ft tonight irvtollotion .needed i KltclwfiAM Top-Loading Portables.

Children love making these three dimensional pictures that they can feel. A simple no-cook paste can be made by a of flour with water until it's gooey should be quite thick so it won't run all over the and then adding a pinch of salt. 3. Paper can decorate plates for special holiday parties paint or or make them into funny hats by glue- ing on decorations and then ty- ing them under the chin with string. A five-year-old may enjoy cutting out numbers from an old calendar and making a clock on his paper plate. 4 Stringing Dry Macaroni Take some short pieces kind with holes all the way and string them like beads to make necklaces and bracelets. The best string is a shoelace but ordinary str- ing works just as well if one end has cellophane tape on it to make a stiff tip. For gay let your child paint the macaroni with food coloring and dry it before he strings it 5. Large Paper Bags make wonderful masks with oddly shaped holes cut out for the nose and mouth. If he wants a fancy a child can color the past on yarn for paper for ears and so on 6 Puppets Small paper bags can become puppets if you can help your child draw faces on them. If you make a little hole for the the child can poke a finger through it and make a tongue. Two fingers can be ears Old socks and old mittens also make good hand puppets. A child can slip his hand into the toe of the sock and make his puppet by moving his thumb up and down against his four other fingers. If you feel like sew two buttons on the top section for eyes and another for the sew on a slip of colored material for the mouth. 7 Pipe Cleaners can be twisted into stick men and im- aginative animals 8. your child can safely handle a dull table he might enjoy shaping his very own fanciful soap animal or boat from a regular bar of soap. 9 Card Tables or a kitchen with or without a spread or a blanket over can be a house or a 10. Cut-outs A few minutes spent showing your child how to make snowflakes and paper dolls from folded paper might lead them to hours of enjoyment Little girls love to play with paper dolls they can make quite easily by learning how to cut out pictures from old A child has a great imagina- tion and can change from one game to another in a matter of seconds. Occassionally a child can find himself with nothing to by giving him a new unused ob- like a pipe cleaner you may be sparking his imagina- tion and creativity to greater heights. Hope these ideas help. Good Luck' In and out AH known Silver Cross mothers in Lethbridge were sent a bouquet of-flowers for Remembrance Day.

Coffee may calm restless children CHICAGO Coffee may be the best medicine for hyperkmetic a psy- chiatrist has discovered. Coffee also avoids side- effects related to many says Dr Robert Schnackenberg of S who recently completed a six-month trial of treat- ment with coffee Dr Schnackenberg found that in many cases children responded better to coffee than to other medicines.
