All in a Days Work

Yesterday was a really fun day. Mommy has been slacking on the crafts a little this week, so I planned some awesome activities for us! It started with storytelling and acting out the characters from a funny story I have made up lately that the kids love about Silly Girl Butterfly and an Ugly Stinker Pants Bee. This is how Gus envisions the bee, apparently.

In the afternoon we moved onto body finger painting, which the kids love. I accidently discovered their enjoyment of this activity when we finger painted inside one day. I quickly discovered that it was more of an outside activity than an inside one- and who needs paper?!?!

Well, what better way to get off finger paint then to spray it off with a hose. The kids loved it so much that we had to do the whole thing twice!

And we wrapped up the day with a cool fort made of moving boxes cut, taped and drawn on with markers (how the permanent purple marker drawings got on the kitchen shelf is another related, but self explanatory story). We eventually clipped a Superman sheet on the top for a roof, and Gus begged if him and daddy could sleep in it last night. They love it!

Somehow I also managed to make banana bread and lasagne yesterday too. To round off the day, we went for a family walk last night when daddy got home from work.

Today we will celebrate the letter F for Flag Day, color F worksheets, and make paper flags. I have to admit, this stay at home mommy thing is starting to grow on me ;)
