Today Amie asked if we could go to the library. Not knowing the weather conditions outside – comes with living in a warm and cosy basement – we got all dressed up. Then we walked about 5 yards in 20 F in a biting wind on an icy pavement and… turned back. It was brutal. Amie, who doesn’t like her expectations frustrated these days, totally agreed on a change of plan.
(Drawing Amie’s hand: note the PJs and the concentration)
We played with the Kapla blocks, the wooden train set, read books, drew pictures, made puzzles and danced and drew our hands and ran out of ideas. Then I remembered this cute caterpillar at Middlemonth as well as the old egg carton I just tossed in the recycling. A good excuse to break out the paints! Amie helped with most of the painting, dipped the Q-tips into the black paint, and loved testing whether the thing was dry already (she also loves washing her hands).
People, I’m thinking it is time – so long-awaited – to plunge into the KidsCraftWeekly archives! I have been telling myself for long time not to go and look at all the wonderful crafts we will soon be able to do together. I knew I wouldn’t be able to wait. But I think – yes – we’re ready!
