The boys and I have had to get a little more creative with our activities. I saw this idea on Pinterest (ps have you heard of that? I'll do a whole post soon about my love of all things pinterest). I had these great ideas that this would keep the boys busy for a while (like 10 whole minutes in our world)... yeah that lasted approximately 47 seconds and then they were off and running to get into something else.
We have since done it and the boys do spend longer on it and it is an independent activity. If you want me to be quite honest, this is what they are doing while I sit on the couch watching my stories, eating bon bons, and having someone fan me with a huge leaf.
