www.printpicnic.com. There are jewels that you can paste on to the crown. It was nice to see that Freckle Foot wanted to share with her brother. She wanted me to see who "pretty" he looked in the crown. This activity kept her busy for just a few minutes but she played with the crown for most of the evening. An activity well worth the ink and card stock. The only issue we had was the crown was a little small for her head. It fit perfect on Little Loaf's head.

Freckle Foot loves her sticks. I made the quilt out of my Dad's old work shirts and a few of the squares are pockets. She loves to hide things in the pockets. Today it was her holding spot for her sticks.
Rice, rice, rice this kid loves rice. Grandma bought her some colored glass beads, which we know Freckle Foot would love. I cringe when she plays with them because they are the perfect choking hazards for Little Loaf. He is often confined to his high chair when she plays with them. Anyways we hid the beads in the rice then put them in matching cups. This was a great way to work on colors and counting. Thanks Grandma.
Since it's been raining for a few days now I decided to make a fort out of the kitchen table. Auntie is letting us borrow this tube which is a great entrance to the fort. Little Loaf liked the tube. Although this activity didn't keep the kids interests for long. I think I might get the lady bug tent out and connect the kitchen table and the tent together with the tube next time.
One of the chores on my to do list was to clean behind the stove. The last time I did this chore was when we got our new frig. Honestly I can't remember when that was because of my "mommy brain". My disgust finally peaked when I tried to pull out a paper bag from the side of the stove and my hands were met with a layer of goo. Luckily Freckle Foot has been obsessed with Cinderella. So naturally when she asked what I was doing behind the stove I said I was "playing Cinderella". She got very excited, picked up a scrub brush and started scrubbing away the dirt. Really I had this idea 2 years ago and have just been waiting for the right moment to "play Cinderella". Unfortunately for me it was right before her nap time and when I told her she had to stop she refused and started crying. Next time I need something cleaned in the house we are going to "play Cinderella". I might even get her a special dress to play in.
Who knew that sitting in a chair could be so much fun. Little Loaf was very excited to be sitting on his sister "chair" a.k.a the potty chair.
Then he discovered that sitting in a booster chair on the floor was pretty exciting. Although it didn't last long before big sis decided that she had to get in on the action.
