This long cold winter is definitely testing my creative abilities as a mama... Rather than spending some time sewing or crafting or even writing, I find myself spending more and more time just trying to think of things for my girls to do to keep them happy. I am soooo ready for spring.
There has been a lot of painting, drawing, coloring, stickers, sensory bins (I loath water beads BTW), and many other good mess making fun. This morning however, none of those things were appealing to the pair. So I pulled out an old favorite. The trusty table tent. A couple of blankets over the table and some pillows underneath makes for some great fun. So much fun that they insisted (and I readily agreed) that they should just eat their morning snack in their tent.
A muffin tin snack for them to share.
It was a hit!
As I type this, Bunny is still in the tent. She hauled a few toys under there and has a great set up going. Squirrely is back to coloring at the other end of the table.
Since I am getting desperate for new ideas, I would LOVE to hear your favorite boredom busters for young children... Happy Friday!
