and now for something completely different...I had Nate over for a visit this weekend and he was starting to get bored, so instead of turning on the T.V. we made snowflakes to decorate the windows. He hasn't started kindergarten yet! but his Mommy has been working on small muscle activities such as, using the scissors... so he loved making these, here is a youtube link for the instructionsI know you'll want to make at least one!
