Paper bowl & plate snail craft for kids - great spring craft

 

Slow & steady wins the race.

We had a fun & busy weekend. It was my husband’s weekend off so we were able to enjoy one of our rare family weekends together. We took Mai to an animal fair that was in town for a few days. Mai dressed the part to go play with the farm animals.

She ran from animal to animal & was overjoyed about all of the rides & other activities that the fair had to offer. She had a ton of fun, but wore out mommy & daddy. After a few hours we returned home. Still wired from her fun day, her energy did not wane. Unfortunately for her, mommy’s did. We played super heroes for an hour, but then my super powers started to fail. It was time to slow things down a bit. Quiet time in our house is a great time for crafts.
