Welcome to the TCK Resource Roundup: the quick-and-dirty way for us to share the best of the TCK resources that come across our desks. 

There’s a lot of heavy stuff that comes up for TCKs: grief, loss, goodbyes, identity, confusion, etc. That’s why it’s so important to zoom out every once in a while (or more!) to give yourselves and your TCKs some fun: it’s necessary for processing, bonding, and our favorite, celebrating. In anticipation of warmer days, school breaks and more vaccine distributions, we gathered together a TCK Bucket List! There are options for your readers & writers, your movers & adventurers, for upcoming travels or to fill days for those of you in countries still fighting COVID-19. Click here, choose the option that works for you & your TCKs and enter your email address when prompted to get a printable Bucket List for kids on the move. For extra fun share the lists or even, set a deadline and race to complete the Bucket List with your extended TCK community!!

Have. so. much. fun!

We know we like to have fun, but why is it so important to have fun as a family? This article from iMom goes through different types of fun and why it's important.

Suitcases and moving boxes often don't have room for board games, but that doesn't mean you have to be bored. Here are 14 fun indoor family games that require minimal to no supplies. 
The only thing that makes family time better is famiy time with food! This recipe, known as Swedish Cookies, Mexican Wedding Cookies, Snowballs, or Russian Tea Cake, is a perfect TCK Cookie that you can make with your family. 

What is your favorite thing to do as a family? How do you celebrate your family and make time for each other as you transition through culture? Reply to this email and let us know!

Coming soon to Zoom screens near you...
Next month is the ONE YEAR marker of online Guide Groups! After 12 months and 5 sessions of trial and error, your patience and your enthusiasm & more registrations than we expected-- we are thrilled to tell you they are here to stay!

To celebrate, our online Guide Groups are becoming
TCK Club!! Starting May 24, we will offer a variety of virtual clubs including our TCK 101 curriculum, art club, coding club and more! TCKs will be able to join up to five clubs a year to build ongoing friendships and practice consistent and creative debriefs. 

Why are we giving you this sneak peek? Well, we are big believers in transparency and clarity. The six-week Guide Group sessions were priced for product testing so that together, we could try out a brand new program structure. As Kaleidoscope expands the online program from 6 weeks to year-round TCK Club prices will be going up (and there will be options for a monthly membership). 

However, we will honor the original Guide Group pricing (found here for the next 3 days) all of you who are already registered. And FLASH SALE!! You can lock in the same, unbeatable price of $100* for up to four TCKs by submitting a registration for any 2021 TCK Club before May 1!

Thank you to all the parents who asked "Can I sign my TCKs up again?" and  "Is it the same program every six weeks?" You inspired us to keep coloring outside the lines and to dream bigger. We can't wait to tell you more in just a few days! 

- Jessi and Alex

* If you choose to upgrade to the monthly membership once TCK Club options are released your registration amount can be applied to that total.
