Indoor Fun

by Christine - From Dates to Diapers on February 1, 2010

So, how did you do this last week? Were you able to be more intentional about fitting in a fun activity or creating a new craft with your kiddos each day?

This week we discovered some new games – Zingo and Super WHY! ABC Letter Game – and we played some of our old favorites, as well – Uno and Connect 4. We even made some sweet treats; the most favorite of which is the yummy and delicious Muddy Buddies. Josh also spent some time with Daddy digging up his dinosaur bones and piecing together a T-Rex!

I didn’t quite get in the special time with each of my kiddos every day this last week, as I had hoped, but we did create some great memories indoors. All while the weather was not so pleasant outside.

As you have already seen of my fabulous guests this last week, I have some pretty crafty friends, but in my efforts to find fun, unique crafts and activities for us to try, I have discovered some new lovely and creative blogs. (Thanks for your recommendations, Mindy!)

I hope you’ll check ‘em out, too!

  • The Crafty Crow is a craft collective, meaning that many great crafts are featured from around the blogosphere every day.
  • P is for Preschool is written by the director of a real Kansas preschool. Its kinda fun, because all posts are correlated with letters of the alphabet!
  • Little Food Junction is a delightful blog with terrific ideas to make food fun. I am loving the Valentine’s Day food art!
  • Today is Fun is a site that features entertaining, affordable activities that are meant to foster kids’ innate creative impulses and encourage a love of life.

Where do you get your inspiration?
Please share… I still need all the help I can get!

I try to post a weekly craft on my blog (http://alli-n-son.com/category/thursday-crafts/). But I sometimes struggle to come up with ideas. The links you mentioned are going to be a great way to get my creative side going.

I wanted to thank you for your craft post last week with the melted crayons. We did it and my kids loved it! They got a kick out of watching the crayons melt and seeing what patterns they could make! Keep the craft ideas coming!
