Just after breakfast, inspiration hit.
Our hall closet is full of puzzles, games, Legos, craft supplies and more, most of which hadn’t been touched in the six weeks my children have been out of school.
Some days I might have simply instructed them to choose something out of the closet with which to play. However, I knew it would be much more interesting if I turned it into a “let’s clean out the closet” activity.
Both girls helped me pull items off the shelves, recalling with delight these wonderful playthings they had forgotten they had!
After selecting a few things to give away, the next couple of hours were spent putting together puzzles and playing games that hadn’t seen the light of day in months. In the process, I got some quiet time and a nicely organized closet!
The next time you’re facing a rainy day, head for that craft closet, toy box or game shelf that’s rarely used. You’ll get something accomplished and your children will find “new” treasures to occupy them!
