When I planned today’s post, the forecast for Memorial Day weekend, at least here in the Northeast, was rainy and cloudy. I also didn’t expect David to have a 102 fever, this morning.
So, here I am at 2pm, trying to wrap up my blog post that doesn’t exactly match the new sunny-days forecast, while David naps (thanks to Motrin), and Ilana sits on my bed and colors. (UPDATE: I’m actually completing this at 5pm)
Without further ado – as my drawing buddy is getting a little antsy – here are Friday Five Finds that will keep the whole family entertained, even if you need to take the party inside.
Memorial Day Clean Games
Napkids – Napkin notes and napkin games are perfect for extra fun during Sunday picnics in the park, or make-be-leave picnics on you living room floor. #ingenious
Memorial Day Sweet Spot
chef’n Ice Cream Sandwich Maker – Sure you can’t go outside and chase the ice-cream truck? Do you care if mom is SO cool that she’s prepared all the simple – no seriously, it’s super simple – ingredients and tools needed to make your very own ice cream sandwich? Yup! #BestMomEver #chefntastic
Memorial Day ABC’s
ABC Museum Book – Toddlers love pictures. Toddlers love to sing. Toddlers love stickers. Mommy likes to show off smart toddlers. Mommy purchsed this book when first baby wasn’t even born. Now mommy loves that both kids actually like this ABC book and have some reference to iconic paintings and sculptures found at The Metropolitan Museum of Art. I usually follow this up with an ABC sticker book or an ABC feed-the-monster activity. #AlwaysBeClever #AllBooksrCool
Memorial Day Manicure
Mixify Polish – Tweens and younger teens will love Memorial Day Mani, especially if they can custom create their own nail polish. It’s art, it’s beauty, it’s spa, and it loads of fun even without the sun. #MommyandMeMani
Memorial Day Mommy Me Time
SkinForum – Long weekend are fun … and LONG. Even if you can’t get to a much-deserved spa appointment, pamper yourself at home with the 6-step Facial In A Box. It includes cleaning, exfoliating, toning, hydrating, and nourishing lotions and potions, as well as a silver skin makeover mask that will leave your face shinier than grandma’s best silver tray. #MeaningfulMeMoments #GlowOn
