The past 3 days it has been absolutely frigid. Not snowy like normal, but cold and windy. So windy it rattles the wall of our 2 story apartment and sounds like someone is pounding on the walls. In fact on day while I was playing with little man, the wind blew so hard it made such a loud noise that he thought someone was knocking at the door. Needless to say, I haven't wanted to venture outside in the frigidness outside, so we have stayed in. Which calls for some creativity. How to keep an almost 2-year-old inside for 3 days without going crazy? Fun projects. Like these:
salt dough handprints for the grandparents
The fun "corn starch and water" goo
|Look at that face of concentration...he LOVED this!|
Blowing "big bubbles" (which he yelled the whole time)
|This is him saying "BIG BUBBLES!!!" This was his favorite|
|He loved this too! I had to pull him away from it after 45 mins so we could go grocery shopping!|
Made caramels and turned them dangerously delicious
|I dipped our caramel in chococlate at a craft day with friends...|
they are to-die-for-melt-in-your-mouth-but-not-pretty caramels now...
And then the occasional Mister Rogers episode
|We call this their gansta looks|
So while the rest of the world is frigid and covered in snow, we have been keeping warm, snuggley and occupied, having fun together.
Liam and I decided we are going to do a "science" project a day. I am stoked.

Maybe this winter won't be so bad after all.
