Activities you can do with your host children

Fall has officially started and we have to be ready for the cold weather! Fall is the season that most of the leaves change their colors and then fall, this is the season prior to see the snow! you can make a leaf pile and play with your host children outside. Lets see some activities you can in this incredible season!!!

Nature walk

Nature walk can be done at any park with a lot of trees, so you can go with your children and have fun collecting leaves of different colors and sizes, at the same time you can explore new places with them! Its recommended to do it in the middle of fall, either at the end of October or at the beginning of November.That sounds good!

Draw in the side walk chalk

Since the weather is getting cooler and cooler draw in the sidewalk is a good idea to spend time with your host kids! lets try it, that would be awesome!

Take them to story time to your local library!

There are many libraries that in fall schedule story time for children, so you can go with them and the librarian reads books and they also do some crafts! I am completely sure your kids will be happy attending to the story time with you!

Write letters to their love ones (walk to the post office)

Most of the kids have cousins and they love to write letters, so it is also a great idea to help them write some letters and walk to the post office with them to send the letters!!

As you can see in fall you can do many activities with your host kids!!

 

 

 

 

 

Japanese festival with Au Pair friends

Ophelia’s Diary.

My host family lives very close to the Cherry Blossom festival location. I rode my bike early and spent a great time before an Au Pair meeting. Sakura SundayAround 12:00 pm my Local Area Representative Polina and some Au Pairs from Philadelphia , Bucks County and NJ came to the Sakura Sunday event. We were so glad to see each other. Au Pair friends

When we Au Pairs get together we always have so much to say that we can’t get it all out. I am just so happy to meet my dear Au Pair friends and Polina.Sakura Sunday

We took cute pictures together with cosplay girls.Au Pairs Philadelphia

After a quick lunch, we went to see Prettiest Pet in Pink Parade. There were a lot homeless dogs there were waiting for being adopted, I hope this festival can help them find a home soon.

Sakura Sunday

Then we enjoyed cosplay girls and guy sang Japanese songs. It’s full of power in their voices. After the singing, we enjoyed a great Cosplay Fashion Show. Au Pair friends

It was my first time seeing a show like this.

Summer Blackhurst, the Go Au Pair blog’s author, in her post Childcare and Cultural Exchange talks about cultural exchange and cultural immersion that broaden kids horizons and teaches about another culture lives.Au Pairs Bucks County, NJ, Philly  

The Au Pair program brings the cultural exchange to all Au Pairs and Host Families. I really like Japanese festival at Fairmount park. So far, I attended all the Au Pair activities and I like all of them!

YOU KNOW YOU’RE AN AU PAIR WHEN…

Hi, everyone!

Here are my friends Au Pairs from Go Au Pair agency and I at the Brazilian Festival  which we had recently, here, in Bucks County, near Philadelphia. It was the best event ever and we had a lot of fun.

Spring is coming, the weather is getting warmer and warmer and our host kids are becoming VERY excited about all the activities we’re about to do.

I often find myself more excited about some things than my kids, though…

and that’s the topic of this post.

  You know you’re an au pair when...

You have a list of  your favorite Sesame Street videos (and insist with a two year-old that that’s better than others).

Here’s a list of mine:

Ok Go: colors

C is for Cookies

Elmo’s song

Elmo’s got the moves

Feist’s 1234

Ricki Gervais’ Elmo Lullaby

Well, that’s it for today. I’ll be back soon with more fun stuff.

See ya!
