  • Since Vday is coming up, you can google kids crafts for Vday. Baking is fun, or looking up new fun recipes like homemade fruit roll ups etc... tie dye is also SO much fun!

  • have a scavenger hunt.
    Make up a list of things that you know they can find around the house. Give them a bag to put the items in and set a time limit. (Ex. find 5 things that are fuzzy, find 2 large triangles, find something red that you can eat)

  • Thanks for all your Ideas.... at this rate we will be out two full weeks before the weather will allow school ... as fare as the baking... I think we have done so much I put on 10 lbs :-) ... three girls love to do that... all the Science Project, Solar System and Reports are done... Valentines are made and boxes ready ... all i can say is thank goodness we still have POWER :-) have a great day ladies...
