Our grandson spent the weekend with us and I thought I would share some of the activities that I planned. You don't have to spend a lot of money to make kids happy! My ultimate goal is that he will enjoy coming to our house and have fond memories when he is older.
So here are a few things we enjoyed doing together.
Books and Legos outside on a quilt in the beautiful weather:
A big stack of library books picked out by Grandma:
Craft supplies and spring toys from the dollar store:
Big boxes brought home from Grandma's office. (We never did play with these, so they will be stored until next time)
Lady Bugs and a big alien monster rock!
This one is for my daughter:
Tissue flowers for his Mom for Mother's Day:
Leaf, herb and flower impressions made with a hammer:
And last, but not least, creating this scarecrow:
Some ideas I have for this summer include: running through the sprinklers, a picnic, a backyard obstacle course, eating Popsicles outside, and the boxes shown above can be made into a playhouse or spaceship.
