For some reason, I had high expectations for today. It’s like a bonus day; Leap day! One extra day of life! Go Life! YAY!I’m placed in a calender to correct our holidays and seasons from drifting. A little Gas-X could help with that too
However, when I was awoken at 5am from the bright eyes of our newly-moved-into-a-big-boy-bed, 2 and a half year old, well, it wasn’t the best side of the bed to wake up on. Especially since today is Wednesday which means I am responsible for keeping both children amused all. day. long. Typically we have daily activities (school, Little Gym, play dates etc.) but minus a 15 minute swim class right before lunch, we have nothing going on today, or most Wednesdays. And with spring right around the corner and winter keeping us indoors, we are reaching all time high levels of cabin fever. The toys in the house have lost their appeal, the books have been read and re-read and the days have become mind-numbingly long/boring.
That is until Pinterest came into my life. Wednesdays have now been transformed into “Pinterest Wednesday!” Which means. exactly what it says. We do a lot of Pinterest activities, usually from my kids board or my yum board or my i want to make this board. Today’s morning fun was making Flubber from my kids board.
You can see I pulled out the cookie cutters and we made stars, snails, a bear and a coyote (someone is slightly obsessed with keeping the family safe from coyotes, so they are ALWAYS apart of playtime.) It was fun to pick up the flubber and watch the shape s l o w l y droop to the counter.
This was a winner, let me tell you. We spent a good 45 minutes playing with flubber and clean up was really easy. It was fun to make and play with and explore and I stored the remainder of the flubber in a ziploc freezer baggie until next time!
