My New Year’s resolution this year was to DO LESS.
I pretty much felt overwhelmed every holiday, even small ones to make sure I was doing “enough.”
Enough themed meals.
It was too much and I doubted that it was any fun at all for my girls. It also stressed me out.
So, instead of stressing out making sure I “did it all,” I just stopped doing it all.
Now, don’t get me wrong. I still go to Pinterest for ideas. But I don’t overload myself thinking we have to do them ALL.
We have had Olympic fever in this house since the Opening Ceremonies!
These are the first Olympics my kids have been old enough to watch and understand!
It’s been so fun sharing it with them!
Emma says her favorite Olympian is “Katie Tedeky” aka Katie Ledeky.
We have been watching the Olympics almost every day and I have been encorporating crafts, which have been really fun for the girls.
They recognize the Olympic Rings now because they’ve made them and they talk about the gold medals because we’ve made our own.
Here are the slew of crafts we’ve completed over the last 14 days:
This was our first craft that we made for the Opening Ceremonies.
They were quite simple:
Two toilet paper rolls
Painted gold or white (I looked up the past torches and they have all been gold or white)
Red, yellow or orange tissue paper for the flames
And that was it! For my older daughter, we wrote USA on hers since she is working on her letter recognition
