Snowy Day

It snowed today! I love snow, especially when there’s just enough to cover the grass, but not enough to shovel! Then, there’s plenty of fun without all the work 😉
But, it was too cold and windy to play outside for very long. Instead, we made paper snowflakes. We folded construction paper and cut out shapes and whatnot, then unfolded to see our results. Monkey Nose had so much fun helping me cut. She’s never used scissors before, so it was a new adventure.
Then, she had a great idea! She took all the snowflakes up the stairs and DROPPED THEM ONE BY ONE, so it looked like snow inside! She spent an hour climbing and dropping. Aah, what a wonderful way to keep her busy, and get a workout, on a cold, snowy day.


52 Pick Up

Not my favorite game, but it’s simple and it’s keeping Monkey Nose busy on these cold rainy days.
We have a set of playing cards that are pink and purple, instead of black and red. No one plays actual card games with them because they’re too… I don’t know… pink and purple, I guess.
Well, Monkey Nose LOVES to throw them all on the floor, one by one, and watch Mama pick them ALL up again. It makes her belly laugh, which I love to hear. So, I put up with it.
Maybe it’s time to reverse the roles … then I might enjoy this game as much as she does!
