Color on a rainy day

Today was rainy, and thundery and gray. It was quiet, and for several hours we didn't have power.
For some reason, I love storms. To me, they bring a comfort and a feeling of coziness. I took today's storm as an opportunity to get creative with my little ones. No TV, no electronics whatsoever. We had no choice but to bust out the puzzles, stamps and paints, books and rain boots. We played monster, ran through puddles, worm hunted and re connected. It was a wonderful and colorful day-
because we made it be.
 
 

 
 





 






 
 
Rainy days are for pjs, big blankets, rubber boots, legos, worm hunts, yesterday's hair, lots and lots of books, paints, crayons and adventures.
 
Today was sweet, and I learned to let creative happen.
 We depend much too much on unimportant things to entertain us.
 
Need something to help you feel creative?
Make some moon sand! It's super fast and easy. Just mix 8 cups all purpose flour, and 1 cup baby oil. Mix with hands and play!
I like to put it on a cookie sheet or 9x13 pan and give the kids cookie cutters and cups. Then they make moon sand castles.
