Hama bead fun!
Yesterday we got the Hama beads out as we have not played with them for a while. The kids had great fun getting reacquainted with them :) My daughter created a gorgeous heart all by herself, and my son created a police car with some help from me lol! :) We had to use green beads though as there weren’t enough blue beads left! :)
My daughters handprint butterfly which she had painted before 9 o clock this morning lol!!! Love how creative she is :) She would craft and create all day!

Prepare a Snack Section in the Fridge
Snacks are one of those things that are required to be organized to keep yourself from stressing throughout the week. Organize trays of healthier snacks in the fridge so they are always available for grab and go. Try not to grab those small bags of chips for the kids, instead grab something more healthy which will provide them with not only important vitamins but energy throughout their day. Try putting small bags of snacks such as cheerios, carrots, apple slices or even pretzels into small totes and make sure you keep fruits and cheese sticks ready to grab at a moments notice.
