We've all had those days where we have a million things on our to do list and we can't seem to get anything done. Try occupying your little ones with a household scavenger hunt that's made from a single sheet of copy paper and a few quick illustrations. Want to see how it's made?
There's always good things happening over at I Am Momma Hear Me Roar and this project is no different. By making a cut in a single sheet of paper, some quick folds and a few simple drawings you will have magically entertained your kids for a solid 10 minutes. More or less depending on the age or how tricky you make the drawings!
You could make some up in advance and have one ready to pull out when you need a few minutes to yourself (oh to take a shower in peace), or have the kids help you make them and bust out the crayons together.
