making our own fun

When it's cold outside, which is often, the kids get creative in finding ways to entertain themselves.

They made this fort using our kitchen chairs while I was mopping the kitchen floor.

More often than I can count, they spread blankets or pillows all across the floor to walk on.

Cleaning them up does not happen as often.

Lindy is commonly a form of entertainment.

For a Family Home Evening activity one night, the kids acted out the story of The Three Little Pigs.

Shad was the wolf.  I was the videographer/photographer.

And Drake never ceases to come up with some sort of activity.  This particular one was a "carnival" in his bedroom.

There was a math game with pennies.

A toss the ball in the bowl game.

And another tossing game.  Fortunately, this carnival was free.

More often than not, our children charge us money to participate in their games.  Lucky for us, it's still pretty cheap.
