The girls are off from school today and it is pouring! We had a fun morning play date which occupied a few hours, but of course as soon as I get home I hear… “I’m bored”. I needed to think quick so I decided to check out my Target dollar spot stash! Thank goodness we frequent there and they never disappoint. This weekend we found so many goodies in the dollar section for holiday crafting. The girls stocked up on Halloween crafts and supplies. This was the perfect afternoon activity for a rainy day off from school. We colored festive masks and painted spooky houses. I absolutely love Target and it has become my girls favorite store too! For just a few dollars, you can have an afternoon of fun! I would check out your local Target and stock up on dollar spot deals! The crafts are so much fun and can keep your kids busy for rainy or cold days!
I always wanted to be the type of mom that had a delicious and yummy snack prepared in the afternoon. Today was a rainy and cold day, the first day like this in months. I wanted to have a fun and different snack that the girls would enjoy and keep them busy since the weather was not perfect. I decided to make pretzels and homemade cheese sauce. I cannot even begin to say how big of a hit this was in our home. The pretzels were frozen and ready in just minutes and the cheese sauce was so simple. I had the entire snack on the table in about 15 minutes. Perfect rainy day treat!
