My kids were being uber loud and annoying before bedtime, so I knew I had to find something for them to do. I have a bunch of white cupcake liners that I set aside, so I pulled those suckers out and said, grab a chair, we're going to make some flowers! I pulled out the colored pencils, and while they decorated their cupcake liner flower, I cut strips of green construction paper for them to use as stems.
On the left is my 6 year old daughters. On the right is my 4 year old sons. He decided to make a person instead. This gave us about 15 minutes of calm down, quiet time, which was WONDERFUL!
