Well the kids were both off school today for the holiday, and our plans for a playdate with friends fell through (feel better soon - all of you!!) so we were home all day today. We did a lot of the usual chores, laundry, dishes, etc but the kids also needed to be entertained so I tried to do a couple of MLK Day things with them.
First we did a colouring page - just printed off the internet. To change it up a little I had the kids paint it with watercolours, instead of just using crayons and/or markers. They both enjoyed the change! Sometimes the smallest change to a common activity can make it *new & exciting* again. I was impressed with how much Little Mr concentrated and tried to get his picture 'just right' (and that he didn't wet the paper so much that he made a hole!)
