Puppets, caterpillars, & robots!

Since Mark had drill today, my plan for the day was to take the kids to the playground after lunch and spend the afternoon outdoors. When I woke up this morning, the sun was shining, but by the time lunchtime came around, I could see the dark clouds in the distance. I knew we wouldn’t be able to go to the playground as promised.

So what could we do instead??

After lunch, we read a couple of books that we bought yesterday at the book fair at Eric’s school. Then, we curled up on the couch and watched a movie. After the movie, I pulled out the craft box and let our creative juices flow.

We started off making some paper bag puppets!

Then moved on to a spring time theme and made some caterpillars and flowers!

And Eric had to have a robot…..

It is now close to dinner time, and the rain has moved out. The sun is shining again. I’m sure we’ll be heading outside soon. Even so, the rain didn’t put a damper on our fun!
