First up: paper airplane target practice. This was great, everyone took a lot of time to make their airplanes, even pulling out a book that had been on the shelf retired for awhile to help them make fancy designs. We practiced for awhile, then we made a big score sheet and went for victory. Ben beat us all by sailing through the 1000 point hole three times.
Next up: faces rip art. It was harder to find big faces to rip up than I thought it would be (we don't have many magazines), but we did manage to find enough to make it fun. (Thanks Tiffany for the great idea!)
Finally, the great ABC123 hunt. We each went all over the house in search of things that could pass as a letter or number then snapped up pictures of them. The only rule was you couldn't move things around, you had to find existing characters. At the end of our time limit we gathered in the family room and showed all our photos on the tv. I was really impressed with the kids! I thought they'd have a hard time finding things, but not so! They saw tons of letters and numbers I never would have noticed. Here are just a few of our finds...
It was a great two-weeks worth of snow days. It is kind of nice to get back to the normal routine, but man, that time off was fantastic. Good thing spring break is right around the corner.
