If you follow me on Twitter or Facebook, I have COMPLAINED mentioned several times that my household has been sick for 3 weeks now! Trying to find things to keep the boys busy has been a challenge since they tire easily, but being boys that don't want to sit around and rest. Now the first week when Evan had Croup - he did literally sit around and watch T.V. all week long! But now both boys are antsy, whiney and sick! What a wonderful combination!
So, desperate, I went to Odd Lots in hopes of finding some activities/toys to do with the kids to keep their minds off being sick, that were easy to do and didn't require a lot of thought and preparation on my part, since I too have been dealing with the same sickness as the boys. Trust me, I wish that they would just watch T.V. without bothering me :-)!
I came across some Crayola items that were reasonably priced and looked interesting. As much as I love Crayola, most of the items geared toward toddlers were never fully embraced by Evan (he is one hard nut to crack when it comes to activities that don't include a ball), so I haven't tried any of them on Carter. So I was a little apprehensive to buy anything, but I was desperate.
I picked up some TaDoodles Washable All-In-One Paint. If you know me, I hate doing crafts with my kids because of the mess. Thank goodness for an Artsy Daddy that takes care of that! These were perfect because I didn't have to pour any paint and within reason the boys didn't get their hands all messy! Score!
Besides that, they really enjoyed painting! Did Crayola put me up to this? NOPE!! The boys really enjoyed playing with the TaDoodles and I loved the easiness of them, so I thought I would tell you guys that this is one product I will buy again and since Christmas is coming up, what a great little stocking stuffer for the boys. OR even better, HEY Crayola I would be certainly happy to sample any more of your products out and if you can send me some more of these TaDoodles paints I would greatly appreciate it! Come on, help this stir crazy Momma out!! :-) K, thanks!!
