Works for Me Wednesday: Blog Reading

Works for Me Wednesday is here again so go and check out these other fabulous ideas at "We are THAT Family".

Blog reading is what works for me. I tend to find a lot of useful ideas for activities from other moms. I will display it in pictures because that "works for me", ha!

My #1 spot for craft/education ideas for the boys is at "No Time For Flashcards". I have a button on the right bottom side of my blog. All of the following crafts are from that blog. I cannot say enough about the wealth of ideas this former pre-school teacher and current SAHM provides.

Here is a link to an alligator craft and a dinosaur craft that we did also.

Another twin mom blogger @ "Two are Better Than One" gave me the idea for fun at the sink. This is really basic but it was not something that I had thought of. To give you an idea of how much the boys love it. I asked them if they were ready to go outside and they BOTH shouted "NO!!"


I also picked up the idea of playing with beans at a blog although I am not sure which one AND realized here that I needed to start baking with my boys despite the mess.

All of these things come in handy while looking for ways to entertain twin two year old boys. I especially appreciate them in the dead of a Michigan Winter!

So glad they had fun splashing in the sink! We are stuck in the house this week with croup, and I am having glimpses of what winter will be like with two cooped up 2 year olds. I need all the extra ideas I can get, too!
