As you can see when you look at my 101 Things to Do with Your Toddler page, coloring is the first to be scratched off the list! I turned the TV off, got some coloring books and crayons and we all colored pictures.
I really enjoyed spending time with my kids and coloring. As you can see in the last picture, Zoe and Max decided to help me color my page. Ha! This was a learning moment for me --- I'm a perfectionist when it comes to coloring pages and making sure they look fabulous! But I thanked them for the help and I really like how it turned out. =)
It was also fun to hear Zoe recognize her colors. A couple times (as seen in the picture above) she would get stumped, but I would help her out and she remembered the next time I asked her! Max repeats everything Zoe says so he was saying his colors too. Cute little kids!
I had to leave them near the end to put finishing touches on dinner. Next time I'll make sure crayons are put away, though, because I now have lovely black scribbles on my wall thanks to my son. Go figure! =) I can't help but laugh every time I see it --- but don't worry, I plan on scrubbing it up today!
I think the high for today is supposed to be close to 50 degrees so we will make sure to do the next thing on our list: blow bubbles! The kids are going to freak out! They love bubbles! I think they get that from me. ;) Did any other mommas get some coloring done?
