Fun Changes

I'm trying to change our schedule a bit now that Princess has been born & I'm on the mend. One thing is to add more structured activity to Bugsy's day. He enjoys cooking & projects so I asked Sweet Pea to do a project with him. We got down the book, "The Little Hands Art Book" and they chose a project together. They decided to make salt dough and then put Bugsy's handprint in it. They would need to bake it so it could be a keepsake.

Putting together the ingredients for the salt dough.

Camera shy? Not one bit! Lol.

Putting the ingredients in the bowl.


While they worked in the kitchen Elvis worked on his math. He is very eager to finish up his last first grade math book!

Mixing the dough......

Placing his hand print in the dough

The dough was too gooey so Sweet Pea added more flour & they started over.

He did a good job at rolling out the dough.

After they made his hand print again they had fun making animals.


Being silly.

Sweet Pea concentrating on making a turtle for Bugs.

Homemade playdough is fun!

While the clay baked Bugsy joined Elvis.

Elvis read his Explode the Code lesson aloud to Bugs.

Smiles for Mommy!

After taking pictures for me while I nursed Princess, Boo Bear worked on her math. I was proud of how hard she studied her geometry. Even more so because I never did understand the subject! =)

Wow! You're an amazing mama to implement these fun changes already. I'm sure that it's sooo good for Bugs! I'll have to take notes on your ideas for my 3 year old. :) He definitely needs some creative outlets for his boundless energy...
