We hosted a party to get together with a group of our friends we hadn’t seen for awhile. It was a bit last minute (one week’s notice) but we managed to still have some fun activities for all of the kids (age range of 6 months to 13 years) and adults.
I decided to do “F” next for our letters because we were entering “Fall” and I thought we could do some activities around that.
With two kids appreciating holidays, decorations, crafts, etc., it has been fun this Halloween to do lots of different activities with them. We still have more activities planned that I will have to share since I am writing this a week ahead of time, but here are some.
When I gave the Chiplet ideas for this letter I saved one for last because I had a feeling he would pick it. A very strong feeling.
Once we came back from Maryland, I realized two things both related to the Fudgelet starting school in less than a month. One, he would not be around as much soon, so it was a good time to throw in some more random activities with them. And two, soon it would just be me staring at the Chiplet all day, so I needed to get the rust off of my toddler crafts/activities. By practicing with the Fudgelet around to help demonstrate proper behavior (most of the time), the Chiplet could be eased into the activities. Below are some activities for both kids or just for the Fudgelet. Some were supposed to be for just the Chiplet, but I’ve learned that the Fudgelet always joins in. Always.
After much ado, the Fudgelet’s 5th Birthday Party was here and it ended up better than I expected. I was worried with so many people coming, and so many activities, that maybe a lot could go wrong. Everyone made it who said they were coming, and the activities went well, too. Here is a little peek into what we did…
I know we are a month into spring already, but I figured this was as good a time as any to wrap up winter with some pictures. Maybe you will see something of interest for next winter.
