Kids Activities- Keeping Busy

I can't tell you how happy I am that Summer is here! Whoo hoo!!
I have  always LOVED summer.
BUT this year something unexpected happened.
Well, first came something expected

and then came Spring Break, Grandma, Dad with time off work, more grandparents, the end of the school year, Dad back to work, and finally me home with the kids ALL DAY. Which prioably brought about that something unexpected I mentioned. My 6 year old and 3 year old who had been playing together so well suddenly started fighting .... a little too well. And with not enough sleep, I really couldn't handle it.
Finally I decided I had to act, because no amount of pleading, disciplining, screaming, crying or pulling my hair out was working. 
My solution? Keep them busy with something new, fun, and exciting. (and without a huge amount of effort on my part, since I have so much free time you know.)

Here's what we've done this week...

Homemade Play-dough


Side Walk Paint
049

Paper Plate Loom




Pick Fresh Blueberries!


I can't believe how much more enjoyable this week has been!
The kids are busy, which keeps them happy, and makes me happy, ahhh, so much better.
