I’m starting a new tradition with the kids: engaging them in a seasonal craft project each month. Here they are working on APRIL:
Will gets very serious about his projects. He likes to be meticulous and precise.
Lucy adores stickers and gluing things.

Will’s top poster says: “Welcome Spring”, the bottom: “Happy Birthday Mom”. (Meg’s birthday is April 7th.) His window clings also “tell a story”:
Lucy practiced “writing” everyone’s names on her posters. She knows exactly what her words say:
Overall, it was a really fun activity and the kids loved having the freedom to decorate how they pleased within the space allowed. I’ve been picking up random craft items for each month on clearance at the various craft stores and dollar stores in the area and tucking them away for future months. We are all looking forward to decorating for May next!
