I don’t know what winter is like where you live, but here in the Midwest I’d prefer to hibernate for a few months.
If I were young and single again (and no, I don’t want to back in time, despite the prospect of a (much) thinner waistline), I’d cozy up with a good book and some hot chocolate.
But these days, the minute I sit down a certain preschooler is begging me to get up again. “Mom, when can we do some activities? Mom? Is it snack time yet? Mom, I’m booored!”
Thankfully, my Three (almost four) is easy to please. She loves when I browse Pinterest and navigate to one of my favorite blogs for a fun activity.
So this post is for me as much as it is for you. I need a place to go to find the simplest, easiest winter arts and crafts to do with my preschooler.
