  1. Great post Katie, thanks for putting this togeter with so many good ideas! I think we're finally recovering from our run in with the stomach flu around here. ER continues to be a bit under the weather and so do I but for the most part we're on the mend.

  2. My favorite was the mosiac frame. If my kids were just a touch older we'd do this. Am going to bookmark it. Great list! Thanks!

  3. I never saw this one! Thanks for posting me. You gals are awesome. I'm searching for activities to do with the kids for the next couple of weeks on your site. Spring Break! Gotta keep busy. Thanks for the inspirations and ideas.
