Today Daddy took the kids out to the playground leaving me with an hour or so to myself. I managed to clear stuff off of our craft/science table. Then as I was unpacking one of the boxes, I came across the roll of butcher paper our friends gave us. As I considered where to store it, I realized I could put it UNDER and ACROSS the craft table for an endless roll of drawing paper for the girls. I put a baby food jar of crayons out, put the chairs in place (for the first time, mind you!) and didn’t give it much more thought.
|You can see the roll of paper under the craft table (in front of DD). When they’re done with their masterpiece, I simply pull the paper up at the back (carefully with two hands) and cut off the finished picture.|
When they got home, the girls immediately made a bee line for the craft table and set about drawing for about an hour!!
