While doing some of my beloved blog surfing I found some great ideas for items from the dollar store. I purchased a bag of brightly colored pom poms last Friday and had some ideas for the kids but Peyton quickly had her own ideas. On a side note, does anyone else's daughter live in her dance clothes, or is that just mine?!
We currently have this book from the library (I just love libraries!) We love Strawberry Shortcake in our house. Here's the brief story line in this book, Strawberry is trying to make a rainbow colored smoothie but the colors are all messed up in Berry Bitty City and she has to make it right. So what does Peyton come up with? Using the pom poms to make rainbow smoothies. Let me tell you these pom poms have completely earned their dollar with me! She's played with them regularly for going on 4 days now.
Carter even got in on the action, he is very into being just like big sister right now. Yum, nothing like a pretend smoothie!
I'll be back later this week, with some sewing, promise. Now go buy some pom poms and see what your kids create! :)
