The Stars Have Aligned

I got my kids a "craft box" for Christmas, full of construction paper, stencils, glue, etc. and intended to pull it out at least once a week for some fun time together. Hasn't happened yet. Either the baby is awake, or I know he's about to wake up. Or it's too close to lunch. Or I haven't even had time for a shower. Or, or, or.

Today, the stars finally aligned. Baby sleeping, mom showered, AND still two hours until lunch. I did a quick internet search for a fun wintery idea, grabbed the box and the kids, and got to work. The craft was easy, fun, and a little messy... perfect for little boys!

And who knew cleaning up would be half the fun?!

An old roommate of mine does craft day almost everyday with her kids. I know...amazing! She'll do fun things like read the gingerbread story to her kids and then they'll make gingerbread cookies. I plan on doing lots of fun activities once Brielle gets older.
