No Kindergarten Monday. No Kindergarten Thursday. Or Friday.
A pox on parent-teacher conference weeks!
Most of the time I'm more of a "go play outside!" mom than a "let's make macaroni reproductions of the Empire State Building!" mom. I may feel a bit guilty about that sometimes... but then I look at how well my kids entertain themselves and I decide I'm doing them a favor. I think unstructured time is vital and I think kids get less of it now than they did in past generations.
So while there will be plenty of "go play outside/with your legos/with your art supplies!" moments this week, I'd also like to have a few activities up my sleeve. For 'coolest mom ever' recognition, you understand.
What sorts of activities do you like to do with your kids? (or... your cool niece/nephew/student/babysitting charge/furbaby with opposable thumbs, for my gentle readers without children?)
I'll be back tomorrow with a stairwell update!
