Hence a lot more time in the house = boredom = a messy house.
Time for mom to get a little creative.
So over the weekend we decided to make some felt trees for our playroom. I drew the trees on the felt and let the kids cut them out. (Practice cutting skills, very important for a soon to be kindergartener). Next we cut out little colored circles for ornaments on the tree. Then I use sticky back velcro on the back of the circles and the kids decorated their trees.
This is an easy craft that can lead to hours of fun, taking the balls off and putting them back on the trees.
