Day #4

Day #4 - Beads & BINGO

Today we decided to stay home and get creative.  We have an assortment of beads and although we craft with them from time to time, they hardly seem to diminish.  I found this idea on-line, and if I must say, I was quite impressed with the results.

Everyone had their own cookie sheet and their own bowl of beads

We have a nice assortment of coasters, sun-catchers and ornaments.

Wanting to include Monkey Toes in some of our "playtime", we decided to have a family BINGO night.  To shake things up, we had the winners choose their prizes from our Chore Tote.  The kids were thrilled that they could "win" their items back tonight, instead of doing a chore as we normally expect them to.  It was a loud and silly night.
Everyone had a chance to yell out, "BINGO" (I'm not pointing any fingers, but I think the game was rigged a few times!)  We played until all the tote items were claimed.

And then, we heard a sound that we find completely enchanting when we're out in the wilderness, but completely annoying when inside of our home; a lone cricket was chirping within our walls.

So to end our evening, Monkey toes and the kids went on a cricket hunt.  We think it expired, but time will tell when we're all snuggled in our beds tonight and the lights turned out.
