Some days I look over our craft stashes (between us we have many) and my mind simply goes blank. I always keep a notebook full of ideas and plans and sketches of activities, but today I just couldn't get motivated. I figured if I was bored, then the kiddos would be too. Instead of setting up a complete activity, I set out some supplies and really let them take the lead. I thought they might ask for glue or for crayons, recognising the materials from our other messy times, but they seemed happy to empty the bowls and fill them up, try and grab as many items in one hand and have a little sort. It was all very nice and unstructured and mess-free.
