This week I’ve avoided the craft tote whenever possible. I wanted to be outside. I didn’t have the patience this week to walk the kids through crafts everyday. Part of that is adding an item to the craft tote that Elliot really wants to do (clay charms) that is for ages 8 and up. I know that means there will be a lot of work for me. I also know we will be getting close to “JUST LET ME DO IT!” territory (sometimes I’m not that patient).
This week we painted faces twice, played with shaving cream, Audrey made smashed cucumber salad, Elliot made cheesy eggs, and Audrey made zucchini fritters. The kids have a new cookbook, and I’ve been trying to convince them that making a recipe counts as a craft.
Wish me luck this week. I don’t think I can put off the clay charms much longer.
