7:30 this morning: I was enjoying some morning coffee and snuggles with my girls, embracing our first snow day of the year! After a larger than normal weekday breakfast, I was left to my motherly duty of dishes and finding ways to entertain the 3 girls. As I predicted, by 8:30, I got my first “we’re bored.” WHAT?!?!
Lucky for me, I had a quick easy craft up my sleeve. Thanks to Mama Said Tees newsletter of course!! The girls and I were able to build some excitement about the Olympic games, while talking about people we are grateful for!
As usual, I am keeping it simple! The girls listed one family member, one friend and one person in the community; and stated what they are thankful for.
- FREE Olympic medal thanks to MST
- *Really anything you want to decorate*
- Ribbon. We are putting ribbon through the medals so the girls can deliver them.
Teacher friends!! This is a great activity to do with your students next week when you return to school. We can never lack conversations with our children about what it means to be kind. Like I tell my girls every day, “kind words and kind hearts.”
Be sure to pop over to my Instagram account to watch the girls deliver their medals after our snow day.
