I absolutely adore children and have experience from infants to pre-teens. I love to encourage outside activities as well as fun and stimulating projects as opposed to just sitting kids in front of the television. I enjoy being active and have loved taking the children that I have babysat in the past on outings to the library, museums, the pool, biking, hiking, to batting cages, or to a park/playground. I like to practice and play sports (basketball, baseball/softball, football, gymnastics, and frisbee) with children. I also encourage creative activities such as arts and crafts projects (For example: paper mache, clay hand-building, painting, drawing, photo albums, picture frames, homemade dolls, chalk, DIY instruments, bracelet and necklace making, etc). I also dedicate time for homework, tutoring, and reading (depending on the age of the children) and try to make it as fun as possible. I also have a valid Driver License, a reliable Chevy Malibu and am a non-smoker.
