Welcome to PB and Joy...trying to spread some joy onto motherhood. I am a stay at home mom with a wonderful husband and 4 beautiful kids...Kaylee (9), Aaron (7), Nathan (3), and Travis (1).
I am also a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (LDS, or Mormon). My family and my faith are the most important things in my life.
For today's Thrilling Thursday my 2 year old son, 1 year old niece, and I got down on the floor and constructed a mini city. First we made roads with masking tape. Then we got out blocks, boxes, and Little People's sets for the buildings. We constructed a school, a farm, a zoo, and several block houses. Nathan had fun building the houses and putting little figurines inside and my niece, Izy, had fun being the demolition crew and knocking them down. Nathan didn't quite get the concept of driving his cars on the roads, and it didn't keep his attention as long as I would have liked,but we had fun while it lasted.
I think that this activity would work better with older kids. I am going to try it again this afternoon when my older two kids come home from school. I think that I will totally shock them and let them play with it before they get their homework and piano practice done....And I will even go one step further and play with them like the quote from yesterday said. I was a little bummed when Nathan didn't want to play with me anymore so I will try it again later.
