Thankful for Activities

Just a quick post prior to Thanksgiving.

Lots of preparing for Thanksgiving has been going on here, so activities to keep Maisy busy have been helpful!

I saw the idea on Pinterest.com to give a preschooler a strainer with pipe cleaners to thread through the holes. I gave Maisy these items and she made "boquets" with them.  She was very proud of her creation.  It also kept her occupied and quiet for over 40 minutes!

Todd and Maisy went out on a nature walk not too long ago.  They pressed the flowers they collected.  Maisy found them and wanted to play with them, so I came up with a way she could use them.  I decided to have her help me frame it for art for her room.  She brings home so much art from school, so I thought we could use a little piece of her art for the background and then put the flower on top - and pop it into an unused frame we had.  Maisy was so proud to be able to display her work in her room!
