It's a struggle to think of things for my boys to do that don't involve electronics, wrestling, running, complaining, or bickering, when the weather is bad and they are stuck inside. So I gave them a project of decorating the fireplace (which is going to be remodeled soon but still deserves some love and attention).
I am very proud of my boys. They came up with this idea.
They took spools of antique colored thread, organized them in a color scheme all their own and strung them on jute string. Voila! A garland.
Then they organized some of the hundreds of books we own in that same color scheme. They made poms with left over yarn and glued them to stick to be put in a vase and as an accent at the end of the garland.
I think the result is clever and beautiful. Way to go boys!
Look, you spent several hours without asking me if you can play MLB 2011 on the PS 3.
Yippee! I call that progress.
