- Paper Clip Necklace (or Cowboy Lasso)
Sophie couldn't clip these together but Logan figured it out. For Sophie I would help her clip them and then she played with them. Her favorite was to use it like a lasso.

I had some packing peanuts from one of the gifts I had shipped so I found this art project to do with some of them. We also did an experiment to determine what would happen if you added water to a bowl full of them (they melt and turn to mush).
Then we played I Spy. I put the remaining peanuts in a big tub and each child got to choose 3 small toys to put in. I made a list with the toys pictures and then the kids went searching for them. When they found a toy they put a sticker next to it on their list.
Fluffy Stuff made from cornstarch and shaving cream. This was really cool especially when I sent them outside to have a "snowball fight".
We had M&M's for dessert one night so the kids sorted them, made patterns, and even created pictures.
