I had my niece and nephew with me last week so I tried to come up with somethings to entertain all the kids and not drive myself insane! We had a movie and popcorn night, we played with water guns and the hose in the back yard, they played with Legos and trains. Together we went cherry picking, made a cherry pie and homemade peach frozen yogurt (more on that later) and we did some paper crafting.
Family Fun and found these curly birds on their website.
Now, being the perfectionist that I am, I was slightly disappointed that ours did not look like the picture but we still had fun and they did turn out cute. This was a challenge for me - to create with all four kids and not interfere to make the craft look the way I wanted it to look. Try and make something with your kids today - I'd love to see your creations!
