My oldest declared it “Blue Day” and thus was born our theme for the day. I thought it quite appropriate for the chilly rainy weather. We all donned blue clothes and the kids played upstairs with their blue toys. Then it was time to draw a blue picture and I added to the fun by telling them there would be prizes!
They watched an episode of Blue’s Clues for the little ones and I debated renting the Smurfs, but they had already seen it and it’s not a movie I really wanted to watch with them again.
The grand finale to our day was a play written, produced and acted out by the kiddos. We had a blue monster, blue princess, and blue sleeping lion…oh and a little intruder. The play had a moral against lying and everything. It was too cute!
Don’t let the kids drive you crazy on a rainy day…encourage them to use their imagination instead!
