Here are a few things we’ve been enjoying in the great weather we’ve had this month:
The kids really love riding their bicycles on our driveway. Last week we spiced things up by drawing a track with some sidewalk chalk. They love practicing their turns while trying to stay in the lines. I was impressed with how well they did.
A few days ago I gave the kids some scrap wood, sandpaper, a small hammer and some pens. (They’ve really been in a building mood lately.) The pounding was a big thrill too. I started the nail for them, and also drew a hand outline on the end of the wood where their other hand would be safely away from the hammer. After a lot of hard work, they ended up with some great pieces!
To get a little shade, we did a backyard tent. We made ours by pounding in four sticks of wood and attaching a sheet to them with clothes pins. A nice place to relax and have a snack.
