Is it just me or is March going by in a blur? I realized this weekend that next week is spring break for my girl. That teensy tiny realization has me scrambling for ideas.
As I’ve mentioned once or twice (or possibly a million times), my big little lady gets bored easily. While the little one can get lost playing with her little people for hours, Sam needs more.
I’ve found that the best way to deal with her boredom is by being totally prepared. More often than not I am not prepared. But now that I’m an old thirty-year-old lady, I thought I should get myself together. 😉
Now, the problem with spring break in the northeast is that you really can’t predict the weather. We could have awesome, playground-worthy weather or the snow could just keep coming.
In case of less than stellar weather, I went hunting for kids crafts and a couple of experiments (she loves experiments!) and this is what I came up with:
Toilet paper roll + peanut butter + bird seed = bird feeder via Go Graham Go!
slime via Spoonful
Toilet paper tube hats and crowns via Baby Jungle
faux stained glass via Estefi Machado
toilet paper tube village via Nurture Store
flower ornaments via The Crafty Crow
water transfer experiment via We Made That
accordion garden via Make and Takes
So I’ve got a bunch of spring break craft ideas together. Go me, right? Now what do you think the chances are that I’ll collect all of the supplies I might be missing in time?
