Sick Day

Caleb came home from school yesterday with a mild fever. Caleb is in preschool, this happens a lot. But, this morning he still had it and was really lethargic, something almost unheard of for the boy with endless energy, so, I kept him home and we had a sick day. His lethargy wore off quickly and he was not interested in napping at 10 am so we had to get creative. He watched some Dora the Explorer and Little Einsteins and entirely too much Backyardigans and then I turned the tv off and he began to show his displeasure, loudly. Isaac was napping so we had to do something and quick. Then I remembered a new and fantastic blog my friend Amy just started called "Fun 4 Kids." We picked an activity recently featured on Amy's blog and had a great time.

so easy, so fun and set-up and clean-up were a breeze

Amy has a degree in Early Childhood Education and used to teach before becoming a stay-at-home mom. Her ideas are clever and adaptable to children of all ages. She has excellent suggestions for ways to get your kids doing things they and you will both enjoy. Check out her site and have FUN!

I noticed his cute T-shirt, too.

What a lovely craft, idea. Thanks for sharing it and thanks for the blog you linked, too.

Ha! That is assuming I have those items in my "craft closet" to begin with. That is what I need: a list of must have items for a highly operational crafting system with kids. I just don't know where to begin. I guess I will start with her website.

I wish my kids still enjoyed doing crafts with apples. Sigh.
