If you read yesterday’s post then you know we’ve been home this week resting and healing up. Regardless of Gideon’s Croup and Hank healing from the stomach flu, we need things to do to pass the time.
Earlier today, I enlisted Hank’s help “cutting” fabric for heat packs I am making to sell here.
We kept busy yesterday playing play-doh until I broke out the toothpicks and we practised some fine motor skills. 🙂
Poke The Holes:
I love that last one of Hank cheezing. I used to smile just like that when I was little.
My good friend, Mary, gave me the idea for this next activity:
I pulled the laces out of my hiking shoes and cut up plastic drinking straws like this:
I threaded one and tied it so it couldn’t slip off then explained that they were going to thread the stripes onto their snakes. They loved this one.
Dear Jesus, thank you for good quality time with the boys. They amaze me. I am confident you are an awesome God when I look at the purposeful and imaginative things you make. Amen.
