Welcome to the Treehouse!
Hello, Parents and Kids!
We've been thinking hard about a way to keep connected during the quarantine/social distancing/everyone stay inside and lose your minds because this is Ohio and the weather is NOT cooperating!! Sorry. Got carried away for a second.
Anyway. We've decided to launch our own blog and podcast just for Bloom Kids (and their parents). Each week there will be a new podcast to listen to as a family. The blog will house the show notes for those podcasts. Show notes are where you can find a written transcript of the episode as well as discussion questions. The blog will also be a spot where we share resources for parents. These resources might be other podcasts (for adults or for kids), tips for helping kids with anxiety, fun crafts ideas, etc.
The idea is that this is our place. Please comment on the posts! Let us know what you think and how you're doing. Reach out with ideas. Email me if you have content you want to share! This is a space for all of us.
If you check out this blog on a desktop, there's a link on the right to sign up for emails each time there's a new post!
More about the Podcast
I (Rebecca) will be recording each episode on an app called Anchor. This app is FREE and anyone can download it. With this app you can send me voice messages so I can include it in the podcast. Each week I plan on asking the kiddos a question so they can send me in voice messages. Things like, "tell me your best joke," or "what's your favorite thing you did this week," or "best board game" or whatever else I can think of. This way the kids get to be part of the podcast and stay connected in a pretty cool way. If your child wants to send a voice message, either use the Anchor app or any other voice recording app your phone might have. Have your child say their first name and then share their thought! If you have a memory verse, an encouraging word, a joke, a prayer, anything you want to share, you are welcome to send that to me as well.
The podcast will be available for streaming on most platforms, everything form Spotify to Apple to Google Podcasts. If you choose to listen through Anchor you will get to hear music that I link to the podcast!
Please reach out to me with any questions! And keep in touch....virtually. In real life, six feet of space please. And wash your hands.
Come near to God and he will come near to you. Wash your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts....--James 4:8 🤣
