Welcome to a new feature here on Simple Kids: Kiddin’ Around, where I will share different activities, games, crafts, and links the kids and I have loved each week.
Right now my kids are ages 2, 5, 7, and 12. Here’s what we’ve been up to this week and how we’ve been kiddin’ around:
Music: Grandpa’s 45s – we spent the weekend at my parents’ place for the Easter holiday and my Dad showed Jillian his collection of 45s. It wasn’t long before we had two DJs spinning Lollipop, I’m a Mummy, Charlie Brown, and more for us on the record player and a little impromptu family dance party. Who knew we had so many cool cats in our family? Some things span all generations, don’t they?
Watching: Arthur’s Outdoor Week – my son Max is a huge fan of Arthur (as was his sister Jillian before him) and he’s been really excited about the outdoor themed episodes this week. His other favorite PBS Kids show is Wild Kratts. Are you sensing a theme with this boy of mine? If you’re interested, you can catch the last day of Arthur’s Outdoor Week by checking your local television listing for the PBS station near you or you can head to the PBS Kids website here.
Very, Very Pinteresting – my kids and I are interested in trying out this Homemade Chalk Paint recipe, shared by Mandi of Life Your Way’s 8 year old daughter.
