When I posted this moment last Friday I almost posted a while series of pictures instead of just the one image. I suppose it almost defeats the purpose of a post without words if I post a follow-up with lots of words, but I don't do it too often! Here's the whole story.
We've been home battling a variety of illnesses and I've been trying to come up with activities we haven't done a hundred times already. I thought it would be easy to tape some paper* up on the wall so she could draw and I could fold clothes on the table. I thought she'd be more interested if the paper was on the wall. This was true but once the paper was up she wanted me to draw with her. Not a problem. I'd rather draw than fold clothes.
We decided to trace her outline since she really likes being traced. We do this a lot with sidewalk chalk when it's sunny outside. It's a whole lot less creepy to trace her outline on the wall than on the sidewalk! Anyhow, I digress...We traced her outline on the wall.
Then she set to work coloring herself in.
What do you do for fun when you can't leave the house? We need some new ideas!
*I used a roll of easel paper from Ikea to cover the wall. But recently I noticed that Sam's club has HUGE rolls of butcher paper...so when we run out of Ikea paper I think we'll switch to that!
