We had two activities that kept the oldest busy for at least a couple minutes….or distracted him…or just got him engaged in something other than torturing his younger brother…and getting into messes with blue dye….uh yup!
First up…Window Coloring! This was like a forbidden fruit to him, so this really kept him busy for a good hour and there have been several follow up requests. These are neon white board erase markers that on the package said were good for window coloring so though, aye why not? HE LOVED THIS!!!!
Another fun activity was playing with his rock collection..yup thats right. This was his special christmas present request. As luck would have it, my mom had a huge interest in this when she was a kid as well and was able to get one together for him. So we found some rocks buried in the snow around the yard and compared them to the rocks in his collection. Compared if it was smooth vs rough, colors, shapes, edges ect. It was a good time and educational too 🙂
