After School Activities
We can't count down to the end of the school year. Poor Gracie can't bear to think about how many days are left. I love that she loves school, but time of year is hard on her.
She still has until NEXT Thursday, but the teacher has ended reading groups and homework, so now after school she doesn't know what to do with herself.
After yesterday, I knew I had to do something before I went nuts! I had seen a cute idea to have the days of the week bags and activities in it for your child(ren) for the summer. Woah! You make a bag per child for every day for the summer! Nope. (I have made a summer schedule though and I will have to blog about it another time). But the bags and hanging them with clothes pins was too cute. So, I altered the idea and made bags for the next 8 days. One for every day until the end of the school year.
Each bag is filled with activities for her to do. I have a HUGE supply of crafts and workbooks and all sorts of things for the kids I have collected for years now, so it wasn't that hard to find enough to fill a lunch bag.
She opened her bag this afternoon and loved it! It kept her busy and engaged for hours and it made for a much easier afternoon!
