Days 18-20: Baths, Board Games, & a Party!!

If you are just now joining me, I am taking a 31 day challenge to play with my children on a daily basis. I hope these posts will give you some easy but fun ideas that you can play with your kids.

It's been a rough week with rainy days, a baby who wouldn't sleep, and a teething toddler, so our "play" has been informal and completely off the cuff.

 Giving our toys a bubble bath 

Playing Hi Ho! Cherry-O--A great first game for toddlers

Brown Bear, Panda Bear--A really fun game for preschoolers  

And today we finished our first week of "school" at home and since we've been working on the letter "A," I thought it'd be fun to have an "A" party.


So, I fixed a delicious spread of all things starting with the letter A:
  • applesauce muffins
  • "ants on a log" (with graham crackers instead of celery)
  • animal crackers
  • almonds
  • "alligator teeth" (apple slices with peanut butter and marshmallows)
  • apple
  • applesauce

The girls loved that we had a special party to celebrate the end of our first week of school. We had fun and look forward to a great weekend ahead!

Blessings to you,
