Michael came home early from school today. He wasn’t “sick,” but he wasn’t feeling very well. Long story.
Anyway, we needed something to do.
My requirements were:
1. We had to stay inside.
2. We had to stay busy – I didn’t want to sit around watching movies.
3. The kids couldn’t kill each other (a possible outcome, actually).
These weren’t as inexpensive as I thought they might have been, but I bet if I had shopped around a little more I could have cut a few dollars off. The kids had a ball designing their own cubbies. Jack’s has markers and a number line, Michael’s has a clip for his homework and a fun magnetic ruler to hold supplies.
My favorite part? Each kid has his own space, so no fighting at homework time.
