Happy Thursday, everyone! Time to be thankful.
I am thankful for the many wonderful ideas, the crafts, recipes, and activities, that I’ve learned from other mommy bloggers.
It was a crazy day, the kids kept getting into little tiffs. I was struggling to get dinner cooked when I remembered reading a post on Hands on as We Grow about letting kids thread pipe cleaners into the holes of a colander.
Wondering if it would actually work, I grabbed the colander from the cabinet, put it upside down on the floor, grabbed a handful of pipe cleaners and showed my almost 3-year-old little boy what to do.
He was hooked in an instant.
He let Mommy slide in the yellow pipe cleaner while he did the red. He carefully slid the fuzzy wire through the itty-bitty hole and was so proud when it disappeared.
He proceeded to do each and every pipe cleaner, while I put potatoes in the microwave, flipped the chicken over, and started getting veggies ready for dinner. 20 minutes went by and he was still entertained.
When big sister came out, he couldn’t wait to show her the new game. Previous squabbles from the day were forgotten as he handed her pipe cleaners to thread.
They ate dinner and returned to playing with the pipe cleaners.
Peace and a chance to cook dinner without referring, what else could a Mommy ask for?
You’re turn! What ideas have you discovered through the world of blogging that you’re thankful for?
