A month ago we turned the clocks back for the end of Daylight Savings, but I neglected to mention it to the kids. They don’t know they’ve been going to bed an hour early every night since then. (They still wake up at the crack of dawn, just like always.)
One day they will know how to tell time, but until then, the seven o’clock bedtime is so, so sweet.
Here are some fun things to do with the kids that I shared at Alphamom:
Create A Video Slideshow To Share Your Pictures (I can see older kids having fun doing this when school is out next week.)
You know that I like to keep my crafts simple, mostly made with felt or paper or pipe cleaners. When the instructions say something like, “Now get out your modge podge…” I’m probably not going to do that one.
The Pipe Cleaner Christmas Trees to make from Pure and Noble are totally my crafting style.
Sometimes it doesn’t even have to be a craft. The scissor practice activity just bought me a few more minutes to finish writing this post. I drew a crazy line on the back of a piece of paper and now she’s cutting up all the fliers that come home from kindergarten. (Also via Tsh on Pinterest).
