Mommy Monday

Most schools are out EVERY DAY this week, which means you, Momma, are home with all the kiddos, wondering how you’re going to survive until next Monday. If you don’t want your little humans plopped in front of the TV all week, I’ve found some great ideas to keep those little hands busy! (Thanks, Pinterest!)

 

Coloring Sheets

ThanksgivingColoringThe link above has a TON of free, printable coloring sheets for your wee ones! Its a great way to stalk about thankfulness and having a grateful heart, seeing as how we’re getting into the season of gift-giving and all.

 

Pattern Block Mats

This awesome website is run by a homeschooling momma who was a reading teacher pre-kids. She’s got a great round up of pattern block mats to keep your littles busy! Need some pattern blocks? Get them here!

 

I’m Thankful Sheets

Im-Thankful-from-az

This is one the whole family can get in on! Go through the alphabet and name something you’re thankful for that starts with every letter! (Pretty sure everyone will be thankful for xylophones and zippers, ha!)

 

Fall Scavenger Hunts

If you live in the south/midwest like I do, its still warm enough that you can send the kids outside or talk a walk as a family. Print off a few of these fall scavenger hunt sheets and see who can find the most items! Maybe even sweeten the deal with a prize!

 

Thanksgiving Bingo

I’m considering trying this with Huff the Tot, but changing it around a little bit. Instead of using it as a legit Bingo card, I think I may print one off as a “scavenger hunt” for her to fill in while we go grocery shopping! She loves to have a “list” of her own and mark stuff off. Plus, hopefully it will keep her distracted from putting unnecessary things in the buggy (I see you, three boxes of Cocoa Pebbles.)
