Wordless Wednesday (Once again, almost wordless ;)

I don't know if it's because my children are getting older or because of the cold winter weather, but my kids have been going nuts! Oh wait, it's me going nuts! They are just the ones making me nuts. :)

I have been trying to come up with more "kid projects" and just things that the kids can do with me and on their own that will help banish boredom. When they get too bored, their moods take a nose dive, and that's good for no one. My first big idea was to buy a slide, which we did, and it was AWESOME.

*Side note, when I first came up with the idea I texted my hubby about it while he was at work and his first question was if the slide was for me or the kids :)

Anyway, so I bought a little slide from walmart for $25.00 and although the girls had a lot of fun with it, we had even more fun making a rocket ship! I actually got the idea from my friend Kensie and her blog (Which you can read HERE) She's an artist and ULTRA creative. She explained in a recent post her reasoning for taking a break from the internet and taking more time to work on her own art (instead of just looking at other's art!)

So, instead of looking up ideas of what to do with the kids that day (For my new kid project idea for that day) I decided to just make something up with what we had laying around. No Looking on the internet allowed!!!

So that's why we made a rocket ship! We made our rocket ship out of the box the slide came and old paint that we had. It took the better part of the day. After that, we played in it! It's been a few weeks now, and their rocket ship is not only still intact, but they prefer it over their slide! It was just a really great day.

Happy Wednesday everyone!
