I've been having fun getting recipe and craft ideas from Pinterest lately and thought I'd share with you what we've been doing around here. Social media is a wonderful resource, unless you spend all of your time gathering ideas that you never end up doing yourself. Or worse, you find great ideas and they just make you feel bad about yourself that you aren't doing enough for your kids or your family.
Don't do that. Please.I've been lacking inspiration lately, so I've put some of these great projects to work for me. Here are some of the Pinterest ideas that I've incorporated into our weekly lesson plans this month...
|pom pom Angry Bird game|
|creative lettering with Play Doh|
|egg carton caterpillars|
|planting seeds (no link here - just bought some kits in the Target $1 bin)|
|Writers Workshop folders|
|colored carnations (look REALLY close at the edges...they're turning blue)|
|homemade push-the-puff ball game|
This is unrelated to implementing Pinterest ideas, but this month, I let Kaylin chop five inches off her hair. I never thought I'd be the mom who didn't let her kids get their hair cut, but apparently, I am. She actually wanted it shorter, but she is so into "doing" her hair or having me braid it certain ways, that I was afraid she'd be disappointed with a hard-to-make-fancy bob cut.
