Create A DIY Vision Board With Your Kids! #StreamTeam @Netflix #Partner

disclosure

    I’ve always loved sharing the characters and music that I enjoyed during my childhood with my children.  Not only does it allow me to reflect on happiness from the past, but it also makes my children more well rounded and knowledgeable about a variety of subjects.  As a parent, I realize that my boys will be more successful in the future if they are armed with the tools to create their own destinies.

    That is one of the reasons why I love Netflix so much!  They stream shows that encourage kids to create their own futures and to envision being successful.  The all new original special Ever After High: Spring Unsprung, celebrates the idea that the story of your life is not written in permanent ink. You have the power to forge your own path!

    In two other Netflix original series premiering this month, there are kids also creating their own destinies. Teenage mermaids stand out from the crowd in Season 2 of Mako Mermaids, and Richie Rich, the same entrepreneur we grew up with, is back but this time his refusal to eat his veggies has made him a trillionaire.  If you are like me, you remember the original Richie Rich from your childhood and it elicits memories of kids indulging in riches and experiences that only a few ever get to experience.

    Creating a vision board with your child is a great way to get them excited about the future and focused on goals.  You can choose a theme that revolves around what they want to be when they grow up.  They can use this board to realize that working hard and persevering can have positive outcomes.  It’s also a great way to spend quality time with your kids and be an encouraging influence in their lives.

    I would love to know how your family is enjoying Netflix and which programs inspire you to celebrate life with your children!

Let’s Discuss:  In your house, how do you encourage your kids to forge their own paths?

  1. I’ve had Netflix for quite some time now, actually it might even have been since their inception. While I love Netflix I’m actually thinking of getting rid of them because I’m no longer impressed. In my house though I let my kids be independent, while I may guide, I never push and I always recommend and encourage.

  2. How cute – that would be adorable for your room or your locker!! I love it!!

  3. That turned out really great! I’ll put it on my DIY to-do board…oh wait…

  4. This is a cute idea to go along with the Ever After High releases! We love Netflix. My son is watching “Bob the Builder” on it right now. We got rid of cable and exclusively use Netflix. It was such a great decision!

  5. Debbie Denny says:

    Adorable board design. I love the idea.

  6. What a cool idea! I love your board and the design. Truly a great visual to get children excited on the future and focused on goals. I think I need one for me, too! Have all kinds of thoughts on how to incorporate this for our family, thanks for the inspiration!

  7. My seven year old loves netfliex and she loves mlever after high. I love your dream boards I am working on one myself but not sharing it online. We love netflix in out home just wish they added new shows

  8. I’m really loving the hairdos on the girls! When I was younger I also dyed my hair different colors, and it’s nice to see the style represented on girls’ dolls. Love the board idea btw!

  9. I’ve thought about creating a vision board for myself but it never crossed my mind to do one with my son. It’s a great idea and wonderful way to teach him to set goals and to reach them!!
