Mom...Im Bored

I get so tired of hearing that they are bored, when there is so much to do!!!!!  So I made several activity list; an indoor activity list, an out door activity list, a parent permission activity list, a family activity list, an art activity list and a night time fun activity list.  The indoor and art list work the same way they do at school.  They have a clothes pin with their name and they move it to the activity or "center" then they play there for at least 30 min before moving to the next "center".  They must clean the center before moving.  I have word documents  I will try to upload later :)

For the love of Pintrest

I have had so much fun finding and doing crafts on pintrest.  If you are not familiar with pintrest, its an online virtual pin board.  Its similar to finding things you like in a magazine, but you are able to organize them in to categories and come back later to find them.  Here are a few things we did over Christmas:

Made Santa Hats & Beards

Decorated our doors (idea found on pintrest

 Played with Insta Snow (

We have had such a fun Christmas!  And now there are only 5 days left!!!!!  The excitement is killing me :)

My kids love Christmas, and they LOVE their school Christmas parties.  A few years back Noah and I were waiting for his teacher to arrive to school & he was telling me all about how the day was going to go down

Noah - Mom today there are three rules (holds up finger)
Rule #1 - No nap today
Rule #2 - We party all day
Rule # 3 - We play all day

Me - Really? Why dont you run that by your teacher

Noah - (sheepishly) Do we have to nap today?

Teacher - Yes noah, but you will be exauseted by nap time


Wishing you a great party day
