I like to set an activity for the kiddos on a regular basis because:
1. They love it.
2. It makes life easier on me.
3. It's fun.
3. It prevents them from being on TV, which reinforces #2.
Styrofoam balls+toothpicks+buttons+mini marshmallows
Tate rolling fondant. It was like Cake Wars in my house.
Gel pastels+watercolor+stickers+thick paper.
It is unseasonably warm here, so when Tate asked to go play in the rain, I said yes. Notice the sled, even though it is 75F.
Easiest Lunch Ever: Get a cute little stand (this one is from Ikea) and fill it with fruit, veg, carbs & Protein. They love that is like a big snack.
And a Christmas tradition, we had the kids get ready for bed, and then we surprised them with going to see the Christmas Lights (at Norfolk Botanical Gardens).
I packed cookies and cocoa and had it waiting in the car.
