activity days + treats

January 26, 2010

my girls both came home with treats from their seperate activity days today.

myla made these cute fruit-snowmen, using kabob sticks + bananas, chocolate chips, pretzel sticks, a slice of carrot, apples, and blueberries…

kiana’s group made white-chocolate covered pretzels as a valentine’s treat. i forced myself to only have two, they were really good!

an even more affordable alternative –

card board sewing, idea from here.“Just cut out simple shapes from cardboard and punch holes in it. (In and of itself a fun activity.) Wrap tape around a piece of yarn or ribbon to make it easier to thread and ta-da! Toddler sewing. ”

have sew much fun!!!

activity days

this week the girls made their own kaleidoscopes. they had a really good time putting them together. A few months ago, I lucked out and found these little kits at 1/2 price because the store I was shopping at {due to the economy} was going out of business. The pictures below don’t do them justice, these kits are adorable! If you are interested, the best price I found online is here.
