With the cold weather we spend a great deal of time in the house. Yesterday I came up with a new activity. I cut clothes out of plain construction paper. The kids decorated them with crayons. Then we added a clothes line to our box house. A pot was found for a laundry basket, and Alessia made a washing machine out of legos. She washed the clothes in the little house, and then we hung them on the line to dry. The activity took on life much beyond what I first imagined, which always a sign of a successful activity.
