Another week has come and gone and here we are again with a wonderful collection of activities to keep us going! Thank you to everyone who linked up last week, we truly enjoy reading each and every one of your posts.
There has been a lot going on over the last week including two cousin sleep-overs! One nice thing about us sisters living so close to each other is we can have long weekend sleepovers for the cousins while us moms and dads get to go away:)
We had some major fun entertaining 5 kiddos last weekend…
Here are some of the fun activities pictured below that we did to keep everyone happy and playing together:
Grocery Store/Work: this involved pulling out our play cash registers and play computers. The older kids pretended they were working on their computers…oh, how innocent, to want to do “work”:)
Watercolors: We had a great time painting with watercolors on all different color of construction paper. We cut the paper into egg shapes and turned them into beautiful Easter Eggs that are hung on the kitchen window.
Couch cushion slides: The kids pulled all of the cushions off of the couch and made one long slide with pillows at the bottom. This is an activity that keeps them busy for hours! (And, is a good reminder that I need to vacuum the couch).
Indoor car racing: This one was a favorite for the babies. We have two very similar ride on toys that these little ones flew across the floor on alllll day long. They would have races back and forth across the entire length of the living room. It was so cute!
In celebration of a week of creative ideas and as we look forward to another week of great link-ups, let’s get to Share It Saturday!
We chose our featured posts this week based on getting outside for sensory and gross motor Outdoor Play. We love playing outside year-round, but are really looking forward to warmer weather around here! This is a little inspiration board of some great, creative, and FUN Outdoor play ideas. I love how each of these bloggers shared gross motor or sensory play…Outside!
Life With Moore Babies painted trees with chalk paints. This is awesome gross motor play and sounds so fun! Gift of Curiosity shares their gross motor shapes activity. I LOVE the motor planning, and learning going on here. Fun-A-Day got messy playing outside with trains. This is super sensory fun. The Active Mum played outside in some puddles. There is nothing simpler…or more fun than that! My Nearest and Dearest created a Nature Table to explore nature’s finest. Take a hike outside for the gross motor work, and then explore with the senses. Perfect!
Big Sister had snack duty at pre school this week and this is what she took. She requested veggies and ranch, so we sent in these little veggie/fruit cups and a bottle of ranch for dipping the vegetables.
This was a lunch we had at home one day this week. They LOVED it…Red pepper, orange pepper, banana slices, cucumbers, blueberries, halved grapes, mini marshmallows, and Kix cereal.
They gobbled it right up!
