365 Days of Unplugged Play

My 2013 resolution is to get more creative in my playtime with Annaliese.  Each day we are striving to do one fun activity that does not involve the TV or computer.  I am trying to keep the activities limited to free or low cost things in our community or around the house.  For more details on these activities check out the weekly updates on my blog.  Here is our progress so far :

Day 1 – Make Muffins

Day 2 – Pretend sweep, dust, and clean

Day 3 – Read books in quilt/blanket fort

Day 4 – Colored ice cubs in bath ( http://www.mommysavers.com/frugal-bathtime-fun-for-baby/ )
