Sorry for the delay! We are in the process of moving and it has been a hectic few weeks! We did manage to do some fun thing and activities each day!
Sponge paints seemed like a great idea for both my boys as it would be cleaner! My 2 year old really enjoyed it but of course did get it in places he shouldn't. It was much easier clean up though! That is a plus. I just put out 3 colors and let him paint on paper and even boxes as we were packing. He really enjoyed it. We will be using them for a background for a photo.
My 9 year old kept trying to cut fancy shapes in the sponges and wanted to do a whole boatload of sponges. I had to stop him from cutting them all! He is at the stage it is hard to please. He seemed to enjoy it while doing it but later complained that it was not fun and was a baby craft...can't please them all! ;) guess I will have to look I to more advanced ones!
"I think I know what we are going to do today Mom"
I am a mother of two rambunctious boys ages 9 and 2. I also have a chronic autoimmune disease which has changed my life around. I cannot do the things I used to. I do not want my kids to feel like they miss out on things. We have been using Pinterest frequently. It is a treasure chest of inspiration. We pin and pin and pin! Then they sit there....on the bulletin board. These great creative ideas that scream at me and make me desire to be more creative! I think I can do that! I cannot do a lot of things but I can do some things! I just have to change some! I am not working currently due to the disease. This summer I want to make fun! I want it to be one they remember! So...our goal is to take one of the creative ideas we have pinned a day and complete it. A pin a day. This can be a little one, a big one, just something to break up the summer days and do things that we normally would not! We can do it! These ideas are from the creative minds on pinterest and we hope you enjoy them! 86 days of Summer!!!
