I was planning to take the kids to the zoo today to celebrate the Official Beginning of Spring Break, but instead, half of us are on antibiotics for strep throat.
So…on to plan B!
We broke out the miniature marshmallows and toothpicks and did some building. This is a great “all ages” craft that doubles as a snack.
And, of course, the froot loop necklaces. Even though the noisy boys are in second grade, I can still get away with this craft since it’s for the preschooler.
And math worksheets. Lots and lots of math worksheets, which the noisy boys are asking for because during spring break, one neatly completed math worksheet = 10 minutes of media time.
They can earn up to 2 hours of media per day.
I realize that sounds like a ton of time, but it goes by in a blink when they sync up their DSi’s and enter the world of Mario.
