We've had some rainy days this summer. Quite a few rainy days. We are an active, outdoor, swimming-biking-hiking-soccer-playing-at-the-park kind of a family. Being stuck indoors with three kids for days on end is not my ideal way to spend summer vacation.
So what do you do when you've played every board game in the house seventeen times, have the rent on every Monopoly property memorized, can recite every word of every Curious George book without turning a page and find yourself singing Jake and the Neverland Pirates to yourself in the kitchen - and it's still pouring rain?
Crafts. Lots and lots of crafts.
We spent an entire afternoon at the playroom craft table creating our outer space project.
Toilet roll, popsicle stick and construction paper rocket ships covered in glitter and stickers and gems, a family of play clay aliens and their alien pet made of bendaroos and seashells, and glittery star stickers for the night sky.
Rainy-day parenting success!
