Fun Finds For Mom

A crafty day

Today is the first day it’s officially summer vacation for both kids. We started it off with a trip to the park, where we met some friends for playing, eating tons of juicy watermelon, and getting crafty. It’s always surprising to me how creative kids get when given the opportunity. My friend spread out a blanket with a smorgasbord of goodies from her “bits and bobs” drawer — boxes, spools, glue, scissors, markers, cool colored duct tape, etc. — and the kids went to town making whatever they felt like. My daughter made a fan and my son made some binoculars:

Other creations included an egg carton pinata and a rocket (which was launched from a nearby tree). Pretty awesome.
