it's amazing what some left over canvas, a little paint, and a few hours of time can get you... some new indoor entertainment! take that, below zero! it's that time of year again, when the sun comes out nice and bright but the temperatures don't rise into the double digits for long stretches. it's just plain cold. so after another day indoors (minus preschool and childcare excursions), we finally motivated to make a hopscotch playmat. who knew hopscotch, a tic-tac-toe board, a toss target and a handful of beanbags could be so fun to make! and it was free, which was even better. not that i want winter to last any longer that it already does, but atleast we have one more goody in the bag of tricks on weeks like these!
