Board Games & Card Games for Kids - From One Mama to Another

 

I’ve probably hinted before that it has been a long winter in these parts. The warm sun is shining, but there are huge mounds of snow yet to melt.

Around Town: Paint Nite

Around Town: Paint Nite - Mom's Night Out

 

Had the immense pleasure of attending my first “paint nite” a couple of weeks ago. It was actually my Christmas gift to my sister-in-law.

There are several places around Calgary that offer similar things {even found one for doing “rustic sign painting”, which I would love to try}.

And we get grumpy about it now, because honestly, we’ve still got a ways to go.

I’m a homebody by nature anyway, but we definitely spend more time at home during these cold weeks. As a mama, it can be nice to have a *few* activities up your sleeve to do with the kiddos, that doesn’t involve snowsuits. Today I’m sharing some of the things that Sammy & I have been up to this winter, to pass the time cozy & warm.
