Anyway, while we were inside this week, we found some fun things to do. On Wednesday I went to Michael's to buy some more things for my new jewelry making obsession. (So far I've made six or seven pairs of earrings. They're not too amazing, but it's still fun. :-)) Here are a few of my first experiments.
So, as we're walking around the store, I thought of an idea I saw last summer. Caroline is starting to really get into arts and crafts, but coloring isn't really something that we had tried. I had read that I could make my own toddler friendly crayons in mini muffin tins. So, I went to the crayola isle of the store and bought a few boxes of crayons and this is what I made!
I think they turned out SO great!
She colored a little bit, but she mostly liked taking all of the crayons out of the box and examining them. She's so serious sometimes. :-)
Yesterday, we built Caroline's very first fort! She LOVED it! What kid doesn't like a fort? I still love it! She had fun crawling through it and reading...
Even Scout (our kitty) got in on the action... she was the guard cat!
That is... until Caroline tore it down. :-)
Scout was not pleased!
So, all in all, it was a fun week. Nothing too exciting, but I love the small things that make Caroline happy!
Be on the look out for a new blog posting that was inspired by my bloggy friend Kelly. I want to follow suit and see if I can write 100 things about me. We'll see if I'm up for the challenge.
