Or at least February vacation, so if you’re expecting a real blog post, you are sadly mistaken. Instead I thought I’d share with you a few of the activities we’ve done in between the playdates and the sleepovers. (I’m not including the part where I pry the DS from my son’s hands, of course. That goes without saying.)
We’ve watched Microcosmos — you’ll never look at your backyard the same way again. (If you are squeamish, you may not even go outside again.) It’s an award-winning movie about the natural world, up close and personal. If you are watching it with kids, be warned : It features a ladybug one-night stand and some serious snail lovin’ that could lead to an interesting discussion.
We’ve found all the Dr. Seuss books we own (a grand total of six) for a Seuss-in.
We’re teaching the Slobbering Beast how to do this …. — I’ll get back to you on how it works out.
We’re working through our final Kiwi Crate, featuring pirate activities. (Although my son has enjoyed it so much I may have to sign up for more.)
And I’m stealing time to read The Snow Child. (It is gorgeous, and check out the book trailer — it reminds me of Where The Wild Things Are.)
Where are the Wild Things? They are at my house. So that’s it till next week.
