I was thinking that depending on the age of the kids that come to our home, it might be nice to have an art area ready for them when they first step in our home. Might help eliminate nerves they have upon entering our home (?). Here is the table I set up for them – and they can spread out their art more on the nearby dining room table.
Since this will be our first time to have foster kids enter our home, I am not sure what the case worker does when they bring the children here….If any of you have been foster parents before, please leave a comment and let me know what you experienced when the case worker brings the kids to your home. I have thought through several scenarios, whether there be crying or even hyperactivity. I have a few thoughts, but would so appreciate ANY advice any of you might have to help prepare me. What ways can I help comfort the children?
Also, any mothers out there – would love to hear your creative ideas as well! Whether activities, comforting methods, I am an open book (or blog) for you to write on! 🙂
