How to Spend Free Time with Your Kids
cardboard building cookbook apron
recipe creative reign indulge
hide and seek designate boundary
landmark announce peek
appropriate count touch
hidden player tag pretend play
assume ultimate gift instead
Play with children seems simple. Do you really know how to do it? Get down on the floor and build forts, make cardboard buildings for cars, and so on. Plan a tea party and cook something. Make or buy their own cookbook and apron, then pick a recipe and help your child make some dishes. Give them creative reign. You will be surprised how much you learn from your child while spending the time together.
Go on picnics. All kids love picnics. Pick them up from school, take a snack and go to the park.
Play games, any game. When's the last time you indulged in something a little wild, like hide and seek? Don`t you know this game? It`s simple. Play with at least three people. Select an area in which to play the game. Designate a specific area with clear boundaries. Gather everyone around a landmark which will be "home base." Announce that you are "It". Close your eyes (no peeking!) and count to 10 or 20 or whatever number seems appropriate based on the ages of the children playing. Make sure that the rest of the players hide while you are counting. Call out, "Ready or not here I come", when you are finished counting. Go and look for other players. Be alert, because, as you are searching, the others are trying to run to home base. Try to find and touch, or "tag" the hidden players. Try, at the same time, to tag the running players before they get to home base. Forget about the players who get to home base without being tagged, because they are "safe." Remember the first player you tag, that person will be “It” in the next round. Be “It” again if you don't tag any of the players and they all get home safe.
Pretend play is very interesting too. Imagine you are a family of penguins or dolphins and so on. Assume roles and play out them.
Give your kids the ultimate gift of time. Instead of saying "not right now", stop and go play for an hour. Is that bill really going to be any different if you leave it on the table and come back an hour later? Probably not, but, your child may look back and remember the day you stopped what you were doing and played for an hour.

century medical scientists made a discovery
flesh blood internal "body clock"

vice versa accident experience.
At the beginning of the 20-th century medical scientists made a surprising discovery: people are built not just of flesh and blood but also of time. They were able to demonstrate that we all have an internal "body clock" which regulates the rise and fall of our body energies, making us different from one day to the next. Lives of most living things are dominated by the 24-hour night-and-day cycle. The fact that we feel tired and fall asleep at night and become awake during the day proves it. If the right 24-hour cycle is interrupted, people experience unpleasant side effects.
Scientists have identified three biorhythmic cycles: physical, emotional and intellectual. Each cycle lasts approximately 28 days and each is divided into a high energy period and a low energy period of equal length. During the low energy period we are less resistant to illness and tire more easily. The low periods puts energy into our "batteries" for the next high period. During the high energy period of a physical biorhythm we are more resistant to illness, better coordinated and more energetic.
"Critical" or weakest time is the time of change-over from the high energy period to the low energy period, or vice versa. This "critical" time usually lasts a day. On the critical day of the physical biorhythm, there is a greater chance of accident and illness.
Human bodies are individual and so we each have our own biorhythmic experience.
