It has had been a rainy week. It rained three and a half of the five days. Plus they predicted rain for one other so I planned no outdoor activities only to realize it wasn't going to rain (the sky looked really awful so I believed the tv, silly me!). The kids go a little bonkers when we are inside almost every day. So what do we do?
Rice box- one of the best things I have put together. I read about someone who made a traveling sandbox with a rubbermaid conatianer and sand. She brings it with them so the kids have something to play in at grandmas. I thought sand is messy for inside, but rice is easy to clean up. I put it together for the winter and my daughter loves the thing. I bought a cheap shower liner to put underneath and that helps contain spills.
Coloring- crayons, markers, a few coloring books and big rugrat is happy for about 20 minutes
TV (and no guilt there either)
Making mother's day gifts
Luckily we also had a few indoor playgroups this week as well. But when the sun came out on Wednesday I was soooooooo excited that I did not care that my backyard is a mud pit. The kids went out and played and played and played.
Luckily the sun is supposed to reappear soon. I am about out of things to do inside!
