Hey GEMS! Have You ever tried to keep a secret?
It’s really hard! Sometimes it’s your own secret, and sometimes it’s someone else’s secret that you need to keep. We’re not the best at keeping secrets, so we wrote this article to help get better at it!
How to Keep a Secret:
Knowing a secret can be both fun and hard. You should be honored that someone trusts you enough to tell you a secret, but be careful. You don’t want to lose their trust. You may also be keeping your own secret, which can be hard too!
If someone tells you they have a secret to tell you, ask how long you will need to keep the secret. Decide if you want to know it or not. You might want to if it’s just for a short time — that’s way easier than keeping a secret forever. If you don’t want to keep a secret, you should probably just tell them, “Sorry, but no, thank you.” They will understand if you explain that you’re not good at keeping secrets.
I know a secret!
If you decide to hear their secret, it’s going to be HARD! You’ll probably want to tell someone else. That would not be good. Because you promised to keep the secret! You try not to think about it, but it’s all you can think about!!! One thing that might help is to tell your favorite Beanie Boo the secret. Make sure you are all alone, and no one else can hear as you whisper the secret in it’s ear.
“I must tell someone!”
That might not work for you, because you want to tell a real person – not a stuffed animal. Another idea is to tell the secret to yourself in a mirror. That way you’ll feel like you’re telling a real person. BUT be very careful to make sure you are all alone, and whisper the secret real quietly!
“I don’t know anything. Really, I don’t!”
Sometimes other people try to get you to tell the secret. It might even be a fun secret, and they know that something is up. They want to know for sure, so they try to get details from you. Be careful! The best thing to do is pretend you don’t know anything. Otherwise … oops! … you may accidentally tell the secret without meaning to!
“Should I ever tell a secret?”
If the secret is something dangerous, and you’re afraid that someone could get hurt, then you should tell an adult the secret. Your parents are great at keeping secrets. They will make sure that no one gets hurt.
GEMS, we hope these ideas help you the next time you need to keep a secret. If you have any other ways that help you keep secrets, share them in the comments!

Hey GEMS! Are you enjoying Spring as much as we are?
Spring is so much FUN! We’re always happy to say good-bye to the cold weather of winter, and hello to the warm days of Spring.
In Spring everything comes alive. The grass turns green. Trees get leaves. Flowers start to bloom! We got to thinking about all of the fun things you can do in Spring, and wanted to share them with you!
1. Plant spring flowers – Pansies are great for for spring, because even if you have a cold day with frost or snow – it doesn’t hurt them! They don’t mind a little cold. A lot of stores will have them for sale. Just put them in the ground, or in a pot and they will brighten your day. We think Pansies look like they have little faces on them. Do you think so too?
2. Pick a bouquet of spring flowers. Be sure to ask if it’s OK first.
3. Have a picnic. Pack up a lunch and eat it outside. You could even do this in your own backyard!
4. “April Showers Bring May Flowers.” Have you ever heard this saying? Don’t be sad if it’s a rainy day. All of the rain in April makes the flowers bloom even more in May!
5. Yes, it does rain a lot in Spring. That’s OK. Put on your raincoat, and rubber boots. It’s FUN to splash in puddles!
6. Rainbow! After it gets done raining, see if you can find the rainbow.
7. Decorate your room for spring. Turn your room into an outdoor wonderland. Draw Spring Pictures. Here are some things you could draw:
8. Go for an adventure walk with an adult. See how many flowers you can find, and which trees have leaves or flowers. See which yards have the grass turning green. What has changed in your neighborhood since winter?
9. Ride your bike or scooter. It will feel great to get out in the fresh air and ride after you’ve spent a lot of time inside over the winter.
10. Go to the park. Have fun on the playground! Swing, climb, and ride the teeter totter with a friend. It’s Spring! Have Fun!
We hope you get to do some of these fun things for Spring. We want to know what is your favorite thing about Spring? Tell us in the comments.
