What me? Crafty? Not really.

That's why I turn to the Crafty Crow for EASY ideas to keep my kids busy. Some of their activities are so easy that even my craft and creativity challenged self can accomplish them. That's really saying something!
The Crafty Crow also features many crafts that go WAY over my head but I just ignore those and pretend they don't exist. Then we are all happy.

Here's what we did today. Nothing earth shattering but entertaining nonetheless.
First, the paper tearing craft. Just draw a picture, tear up some colored paper, and glue it on. Pretty hard to get this one wrong.
Second, the Bathing Babies activity. Just fill up a tub with warm, soapy water, put it outside and see what happens.
Note my daughter's expression on her face. This is serious stuff here and she is going by the book.
It started out pretty tame and then the dinosaurs showed up. And the cars and trucks. And the Village People construction hat.
Then a giant baby crashed the party. It was all over after that.

What's really great is that my kids thought I was the best and coolest mom ever for coming up with this stuff. Shhhhh, don't tell them any different okay?

Looks like the kids had a lot of fun! Miss A often asks if her Littlest Pet Shop animals can go swimming. I send her out on the porch with a bucket of water and it keeps her busy for quite a while! :)

Hey Jen,

Did you see the pic of N on Daiquiri's blog this morning? It's my favorite of the whole bunch. She just looks so full of joy.
