Fun Friday: Gearing Up
Today we stayed home and did some holiday preparations. The kids were super excited when I said we'd do handprint turkeys. I completely forgot we made them last year but the kids didn't care because there are few things they love more than getting their hands and/or feet painted.
I also realized it was time to get to work on our FIAR ornaments. I wrote all the FIAR titles we have rowed since the last time we made ornaments and Jack eventually decided on Paul Revere's Ride. (I'm coming back to add that this picture was taken after he had erased quite a few titles. Sometimes we're slow around here, but we really have done more than four books in a year!)
While he did that, Alice did some Thanksgiving decorating for us.
We also got all of the leaves hung on our Thanks Giving Tree. You could probably go to the woods and find special branches from the trees you planted on some special occasion and then weave grasses into ribbon for the leaves. Or you could use the metal tree you already have and some yarn from WalMart. Whatever floats your boat.
I especially love this one this week.
Check out this week's post at MetroFamily on things to do with littles (and see a cute picture of Alice from a couple of years ago) and read details about Quartz Mountain in this month's Exploring Oklahoma article.
