How many of you have laid in bed this week fighting the aches of anxiety about all you hope to do in the next three weeks?
My hand is raised and I have the dark circles under my eyes to prove it.
I have decided, as hard as it may be, to let some things go.
In order for us to fully enjoy this beautiful season, we've got to slow down a bit.
I am rearranging our schedules to make time for the fun stuff.
The important stuff.
So with all that rearranging, I am trying to make Fridays a little more relaxed these next few weeks, so we can stop hustling, breathe and enjoy!
For this family of 4 little girls, that often means crafting and baking.
So today I have a SUPER SIMPLE craft.
I was inspired by a picture I came across on Pinterest (of course)
Unfortunately I couldn't find who to link this fun idea to.
Here's how we created ours!
We gathered a bunch of paper scraps left over from Kait's party, construction paper, glue sticks and glitter.
The "challenge" for crafting in our household is finding a craft that a 10 year old thinks is fun, but is also doer friendly for a 4 year old.
This was such a simple craft that I gave them the quick directions
and off they went.
While I was tackling 'Mount Fold Me' in the living room
These sweeties were snipping, gluing and singing Jingle Bells.
Here's what they created:
You know I adore the way Maggie's leans to the left.
It didn't take much to create some time to let these girls create.
Today we're going to make decorations for our classroom Christmas tree!
I hope you're able to clear some things off the calendar to create simple sweet moments with the ones you love!
