Love…and well, this year, lots of activities that are inside, not too rambunctious and things that are entertaining.
My kiddos have been hit hard by a bug, and it’s not a lovebug. Some nasty virus that turned into a bacterial infection for 2 of the 3 of us. So we’ve been crafting, loving, watching movies, cuddling and creating for a week. Yes, a week. Anna’s fever has been here for 8 days. It’s on the way out – she goes to bed with a slight fever and wakes up everyday with a normal temp…phew! Hudson’s body seems to have fought differently and he seems to be on the mend as well…in a shorter amount of time.
Want to keep a record of some of the fun things we managed to do this year, despite the yuckies. The LOVE banner above is a take on all of those fancy-shmancy cloth buntings people make. Ours is out of cardstock, tissue paper, glue and contact paper. Yup, that easy. You can do it!
I cut the letters out of cardstock with an x-acto knife and then gave the kids free reign with colored tissue paper, glue paint and paint brushes….
(and yes, that is our tree in the background – our VALENTINE’S TREE!)
When those dried, I laid them in the contact paper, strung them on ribbon and voila!
Another fun project is paint printing. Cover a piece of construction paper with foamy stickers and then paint over it. While it is still wet, lay a white sheet of paper over the foam paint paper and press down.
Anna and I played a fun roll-em, draw-em lovebug game. It works on number recognition and she got to draw a lovebug!
Hudson worked hard on making a multi-level home for some of our Duplo Lego family – it was sooo cool!
May you and yours be filled with lovebugs, not yucky bugs! Happy Valentine’s Day!!!!!
