Doing the most important thing..Play!

I love to have centers set up for the kids to play at for a certain amount of time.
As I sit there with them I know I can free my schedule for 30 mins and just play.
One center was purple sand..It was alot of fun hiding different things in the sand and letting them take turns finding the small treasures I had hidden in the sand.

I brought out alot of things to pour sand in and sift sand through so this kept them busy.They loved having me there just watching them."Look mom"
No I did not get tired of seeing sand sifting through the same container..Not me..It was fresh and new with each one of them..:)

I set up the kitchen table full of play-dough and all the tools to create. This was and still is a huge hit at our house. I sit down and admire all their different animals and help them when needed.

Building memories!!! Binding hearts to mine. Boy I got a tough job:)

Why not take the time and set up some centers around your house today?
The sand was from Walmart 3.00 a bag
The play dough was 10.00
The memories and laughter priceless.
