Hey Mom, Look What I Did (week 2)

It's week number two of our little linky party....last week was such fun!! BIG, Big, big Thank You to those that participated and shared not only their activity, but this meme with others as well!!! I had so much fun looking at all your crafts and activities...I'm continued to be amazed each week at how many creative people there are out there.  You all came up with some awesome, fun activities.

Did I ever mention why I named this meme "Hey Mom, Look What I Did"?


Well, at least once a day (if not more), I hear that phrase....hey Mom, look what I did.

The kids will show me their school work
their sand castle
their craft
their latest lego creation
their mashed potato "mountain"

You get the idea.

So, I thought why not share that phrase with everyone and we can all see what "they" did today.

I hope you will link up (you can do it all week) and also continue sharing this link party with your friends.....the more the merrier as they say.

I didn't have much time to do a big craft this week (again that blasted work thing keeps getting in the way), so the boys made haunted houses using a kit of foam stickers.  They also drew some grave stones and other things on their papers - for some reason they both wrote their big brother's name on the grave stone...hmmmm??? Couldn't possibly have anything to do with the fact that he had been picking on them all week, could it haha.

The kits were only a $1 a piece at our local drug store.

(poor baby ended up getting a nose he had a treat afterwards and bloody remnants on his nose).

I guess, it just goes to show that spending time with your kids doesn't have to be some big elaborate production.  Buy some stickers, some paper and crayons and have some good old fashion time with your kids.  Buy a cake mix and bake some cupcakes.  They'll be happy just spending time with you.  Make a huge ol' mess and have some fun.

What did you do with your kids this week? Come share and don't forget to grab that little linky code in the box so others can join us too.

Great link! I have to remember what you said at the end. I'm not creative at all so kits like this would be perfect!
