Edible necklaces!

Easton's pick was to..."make an edible necklace!"  I knew Easton would love this activty because of his love for food! 
We had some Cheerios and Apple Jacks cereal to use for the beads.

Here they are just about to get started!

Perhaps Easton likes food too much to enjoy this activity! 

 He wouldn't let me even get more than 2 "beads" on his string before he would eat them right off! 

I was planning on only helping the kids make their necklaces, but because of Easton's desire to eat his, I had to actually make him one!  He was content to just have the cereal on the table for him to snack on! 

But...He was even happier to have his own complete necklace to snack on!

Scavenger Hunt! the kids are really enjoying this fun activity jar!  As soon as Parker woke up this morning he asked if it was time to pick his fun thing to do today.  It is now only 9:45am and we have already had breakfast, made the beds, and completed 2 fun activities for the day!  So...Parker's pick was...Scavenger Hunt! 

I told Parker that his Train James was lost and that we had to follow some clues to find him.  Here he is with his first clue!

Here he is again after finding another clue!

 He found James!  Way to go Parker!  We had 9 clues total and he really enjoyed finding each and everyone!
