Well, the second and third "fun" was kinda pushing it -- but it was fun. The kids got to watercolor today to try and make sure they didn't get bored. It went okay, as far as crafting with kids goes. J threw his painting away because he messed it up and didn't want to start over again. E1 did TWO paintings, and E2 did two "paintings" as well - three if you count HER.
E2 hamming it up for the camera.
Not happy about getting told "NO."
E2 was having waaay too much fun with the watercolors. She even helped touch-up the walls. She also wanted to drink the water in which the brushes were dipped/clean and when I gave her a resounding "NO" she burst into tears. Eventually we put everything away and cleared the table, bathed everyone and fed them lunch.
Eating ice cream cones.
And here is the finished product enjoying an ice cream snack after eating their lunch. Look how cute they are. I snapped the pictures before they had a chance to get their clothes dirty, their hair out of place (except for J - his always looks a little wacky) or their faces smeared. See, not such a bad mom after all. (Or so I tell myself.)
