Sometimes as a stay-at-home-mom it can be easy to get bored, even though we love our children tremendously. On gray, rainy days like today I can certainly relate to Jen over at Post-Apocolaptic Homeschool when she writes about her son needing something new and fun to do every few day to stay engaged, on-target, and most importantly not bored.
These past few days I’ve felt like every toy in the house has already been played 1oo times. Then I read a post from Nicol at A Better Life for My Family about water coloring with your kids as a family activity. I immediately though, “Duh! How could I forget about the watercolors?” We have at least four sets, but they were tucked away in the cabinet and I had forgotten about them.
Even if I had remembered them, I don’t think it would have occurred to me to actually sit and paint with Jenna(2.5). I probably would have just sat there and watched her paint. But today I put down my coffee cup, and joined in on the action. Of course, me being me, I had to add my own spin to Nicol’s activity. We made a homemade book about it!
