fun activity

Standard

Today we tried a random fun activity with the twins…First i took one-sided paper and drew an outline of a person on it (almost like a gingerbread man type of outline…just longer). Then, we flipped through old magazines and found pics of shirts, shorts, trousers, skirts, hats, funny hairstyles and i cut these up for the boys. we simply placed the paper with the outline on the floor and the kids had a fun time dressing up the outline…it was so simple yet s much fun and preparing for it was as exciting too because the boys got to flip through the magazines and find clothes that they felt were interesting! This will probably not work with very small kids (mine are now 2.9 yrs old) because of the fine motor skills involved. You can try this with older kids and have them do the cutting too. And mine was just a rudimentary drawing…feel free to make it as cool and interesting as you like! kinda like the dress up paper dolls we had as kids.

About myfourboysandme

Mom - a word that defines me... I smell of oats, johnson's and home baked cookies I am pink, purple, green and orange and so is the floor my kids color on. Flour on my clothes and a brush in my pocket, my glasses bent out of shape and smudged with tiny fingerprints. I can't remember the date but i know almost 40 pictures books by heart. I wake up humming 'wheels on the bus'and i talk with my fingers and eyes and mouth. My bag carries band aids, napkins, wipes, crayons, papers, candy and sometimes my wallet. I know all the parks and very few of the restaurants in my neighborhood. Most of my shopping is diapers, books and paints My phd certificate lies in a roll, the frame now contains an abstract work of art by two year olds and i am prouder of that piece of paper. mom - a word that defines me!
