The big daughter wasn’t joking when she said she didn’t want to do anything for the summer and she wanted to sleep late to bout.
So I allowed her that last week.
Pure laziness with a playdate thrown in made her a happy camper.
In the midst of all that laziness we did get to make some
mess craft. And as you may know we do like to craft. We played with paint, glue, markers, scissors and chalk.
The girls converted some paper plates into some very interesting looking elephants.
I loved that even though they sat together while painting they were not in the least bit influenced by the others art.
They indulged in some bird watching. They spied this baby bird hidden in the bushes ( it looks like the poor thing fell out of the nest.)
Sidewalk chalk to the rescue! It was a great excuse to get all three out of the house and doing something. Pink dusted hands were just a side effect. The proud smiles too.
And who knew that a pair of child-proof scissors and a scrap of paper could be so captivating to a pair of toddlers. I wish I knew about this when helping with homework with the older ones and fending off little ones wanting to be attentioned. LOL.
Seriously they sat quietly for almost an hour snipping away at the paper!
As threatened, this week the big daughter enjoyed her mornings at the Sanaa Studios making jewellry! Being the girlie girl that she is, she is over the moon.
How is your week going so far?
