Bored...

So I just took my "Welcome Spring" sign down because really, where IS spring? Well, it is definitely not here in Utah.


Yesterday I watched my daughter as she laid on the couch and watched a movie and I felt so bad because we'd stayed home all day long. For many of you, this might seem normal, but for me it's, well, not. I'm fine with staying home all day for a couple days, but then I need to get out. Even if just to go to a store, or something! I feel even worse for my kids. I'm pretty sure they don't care, but they absolutely love going outside and playing on the playground, and just being out. I know I could bundle them up and go, there's really no excuse, except I'm pregnant and a little lazy. And I obviously hate the cold.

So, if you're like me and feel bad for your kids that have stayed inside all day long (and maybe even for a few days now) I have found a cute activity to do with them at home. I don't know if the littlest ones will get this (it's probably more of a preschooler activity) but it's just an idea for you to get creative and have many other ideas to do at home.

It's a color scavenger hunt by The Artful Parent. What a neat idea, don't you think?

I'm also planning  thinking about starting preschool at home with my two kids. I have a 2 1/2 year-old and a 3 1/2 year-old. My oldest will start preschool in August but I wanted to get things going already. The thing is, I used to be a preschool teacher and I had tons of material but it's all stored at my parents' house...In Brazil! So now I don't have anything and have to get creative. So if any of you know of some good websites/blogs (I used to know a ton but I lost it all along with my old laptop) I would very much appreciate it!

As soon as I get all my ideas organized, I'm going to start posting about our little preschool. I'm only planing on doing it twice a week, so we'll see. 
Cheers!
