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.
Sometimes I come up with activities that are designed for the Chiplet but then the Fudgelet wants to do them, too. So, you can decide for your kids if these are suitable for your 1-2-3-4-5 year olds.
After our trip to Maryland, I started doing more activities with the Chiplet in mind. The Fudgelet is happy to do the same activities even if they are easy for him. He always manages to enjoy this sort of stuff regardless, so I figured by starting with the Fudgelet around, it would help model some good behavior for the Chiplet. This is why we did some of our activities like coloring more rice, etc. So, the very first day that the Fudgelet went to Kindergarten, “school” started for the Chiplet.
Our second to last every other month update for the Chiplet because we have his 2 year update and that’s it for half a year. Speaking of, I am done doing updates for the Fudgelet on here. I might still post some pictures if we do activities/baking/etc. but none of the “he learned how to…” since we are kind of past that.
This year we spent an extra amount of time in Maryland for the summer. There was a happy coincidence of my brother visiting with his family for a short bit followed by K’s cousin getting married, so we were able to stay for almost 3 weeks to bring the dates together. Basically, we had one week with seeing my brother’s family and other friends, then K went for almost a week to Portugal for the destination wedding while I took the kids with my dad and M to the beach, and then there was about a week after he got back when we let him get over jetlag while we said our final goodbyes to people for the summer.
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…
