Blog posts aren't my friend. They don't call me first. I don't even think I know where they live. The only time we really get together is over a cup of coffee and even then all I can think about is how good the coffee tastes (rude, I know). I really am trying to keep up with it though, I promise.
Back on track.
Here is the fabulously awesomely Fun activity for your Family to do on Friday.. or any other day of the week really, but I can't guarantee it will be as fun if it isn't on Friday.
Here is what you will need:
-candy (just in case the said above children don't cooperate. This WILL. BE. FUN.)
Step 1. Paint a picture of something. Try to keep it simple since you will write using this word later on. My 2 year old, 5 year old, and I each painted a flower.
1. Mine (The most awesome flower ever.)
2. My 5 year old's (for real)
3. My 2 year old's (in 5 years maybe)
Step 2: I chose my 5 year old's painting to use for the story, but if you want to use all of them go for it.
Steeeeeeep 3 (See, already getting bored and having to mix things up.. blogging ADD...): Write about your picture using its "word" and your kids. For example, my picture was a flower so I wrote the word "flower" down on a piece of paper and we thought of things to write about the flower using each letter of the word. Like so-
(Yes, I misspelled "rained." Don't tell anyone.)
The fancy flower
With leafy legs
Opens its petals
To drink the water
After it rains.
So now you have a cute little painting with a story, but most importantly another fun memory shared with the little farts (not appropriate?) I mean the fun little people in your life. *insert ding and orbit white smile here*
Have a great rest of the weekend everyone!
