With another day home from school, the kids are bored so I had to come up with some ideas to keep them entertained.  First we had some drawing lessons.  I chose this bear because it had a heart nose and we are working on some Valentine’s Day decorating.  The step by step directions for this bear can be found at Art Projects for Kids.







My oldest is great at making paper airplanes, so they did some flying for a while.








Finally, we did this cool snowflake. I thought the kids would be more into making this, but they were overwhelmed.  I ended up making these snowflakes while they flew their airplanes. The directions for the giant snowflake can be found at Attempting to Be Domestic.
