Because my current lot in life is that of a stay-at-home-mom/money saver/chief entertainer/educator for a single income family, one of my favorite places in the world in the $1 section at Target. seriously. Especially now that it's cold outside, we can't just go to the yard and play for hours. crafts. yes, I love crafts.
The $1 section is where I found It's Check-up Time, Elmo! That little gem made Daughter's three year old check up the best one ever. If Elmo wasn't scared, neither was she!
This summer I found these. And, WOW, I wish I would have gotten more than two. They are ceramic, which I think explains the 8+ age recommendation. (that and the paints are not washable!) But I figured it would make a great afternoon activity for Daughter and I.
working on my lion. I definitely don't paint with the mind and heart of a three year old, unfortunately.
She kept telling me how much fun she was having and how beautiful my lion was and how she was exited to show Daddy when he got home.
