Ok so this may go down as one of my best projects yet with the Girls!  Today we made Super Hero Capes out of old t-shirts and decorated them with puffy paint!  I saw the idea on Pinterest and did a very modified version which meant I didn’t have to sew at all!

After the paint dried the girls put their capes on and immediately transformed into Super Go Girls!  The girls must have run laps around the downstairs for at least an hour!  Corinne and McKenzie are both in love with them and are sleeping with them in their beds tonight!

I am always looking for fun activities that will entertain the girls and best case scenario teach them something at the same time.  A few weeks ago a friend posted a picture of her daughter sitting on the kitchen floor with a few pipe cleaners and a strainer and I thought it was such a great idea!  Today I tried it with McKenzie and it was a hit!  It took her a few tries to get it but than it was smooth sailing.  After she mastered getting them in I showed her how to bed the other side in.

This was the perfect activity for McKenzie while I was cooking dinner.  I gave her 5 pipe cleaners and she would put them in.  Clap for herself. Take them all out.  Then do it all over again!

What about you?  What are your go to activities for you kids?
