Activities To Entertain Kids

Now is a good time to get creative with your kids while keeping them entertained at the same time. Here are some suggestions for activities that are enjoyable for both parents and children.

Rock Painting-This is a feel good way to be creative and spread joy throughout your neighborhood. Paint positive messages, animals or scenery on rocks. Once your finished, plant them throughout your neighborhood for others to enjoy.

Home Made Playdough- So easy to make but can equal hours of fun. 2 cups flour, 3/4 cup salt, 4 teaspoons cream of tartar, 2 cups water (warm), 2 tablespoons vegetable oil. Divide and add food coloring in different colors if you wish.

Scavenger Hunt-Print a list of items to be found inside the home, the yard or in your neighborhood. Make the game more interesting with prizes for completing the list!

Baking-Baking is a long lost staple. Teaching kids to bake and measure is not only a good learning tool, but has a delicious outcome. From simple pancake recipes to dessert treats, baking together and gathering around to eat your creations is a great activity to do with both young and older children.

Writing Letters-With so many children not being able to stay in contact with school friends starting a weekly letter writing with a class mate or relative. Kids will have something to look forward to in a return letter. Letter writing is also a great way to keep up with grammar skills.

Whatever activities you decide to do, keeping it light and fun will ensure your activities are a success!

What To Do For Heart Attack Symptoms

A dear friend of mine sent me this information.  Her sister is a nurse and sent it to her.  She shared it with me. 

If you are alone and experiencing the symptoms of a heart attack, how do you try to save yourself until you can get help:

Victims can help themselves by coughing repeatedly and very vigorously. A deep breath should be taken before each cough, and the cough must be deep and prolonged, as when producing sputum from deep inside the chest. A breath and a cough must be repeated about every two seconds without let-up until help arrives, or until the heart is felt to be beating normally again. Deep breaths get oxygen into the lungs and coughing movements squeeze the heart and keep the blood circulating. The squeezing pressure on the heart also helps it regain normal rhythm. In this way, heart attack victims can get to a hospital.

Good News About South Maui’s New High School

A decision was made to build a pedestrian overpass.  The sad news is the projection date for completion is June 2023.  I haven’t seen any construction going on for some time since Goodfellow did the dirt work. This hopefully starts soon.

Mayor Announces New Program Amid Covid-19

Mayor Victorino has set up a program for food distribution. 

Maui County Farm Bureau will use $20,000 weekly to purchase food from local farms for food distribution sites around the county – similar to the produce giveaway organized by Pukalani Superette on March 30.

“You do not need to be a member of the Maui County Farm Bureau to participate in this program,” Board President Teena Rasmussen said. “The application, along with program rules are now posted on the Farm Bureau website.”

The deadline to sign up for the program is April 12, and an application can be found on the Maui County Farm Bureau website. Participants do not need to be a member of the farm bureau.

Hawaii Farmers Union United will use $10,000 to set up and run online/pick-up food hubs. Initial funding provided by the County of Maui will be used to purchase an online ordering software package. Subsequent funding will be used to purchase food from other farms for distributing to those in need.
