Spring Break = Kid’s Activities

The week before Easter was Spring Break for the kiddos. I finally felt up to the challenge of doing something every day with the kids. I mean, I pin a lot to Pinterest and don’t get around to as much as I would like to. But, I managed to do it that week very well!

 Day one–Silky Soft Playdough:

Day 5–Discovering Science books:

We pulled out the expensive science books I bought back when River was Thomas’ age finally. They were well loved that day. I hope to encourage more learning and exploring through the pictures and explanations.

About stacey

I am the Mom of two young, rambunctious girls, a curious little boy, and a wee little man who is bursting with joy for life. I just wanted to do something for myself that allowed me to harness the magical moments of being a Mom. (A job that sometimes feels thankless, misunderstood, and considered easy by those that haven't done it.) I wanted to be more positive by looking more closely at the good things that happen every day via photos and my thoughts.
