Coloring, Word Searches, and Mazes

Yesterday morning I had the brilliant idea to get all the kids busy so I can get some laundry and dishes done. I usually have the boys "help" me with them but I really was not up for that so.... I put Becca in her high chair and covered her tray in cherrios. Then I printed out some activity sheets from the computer. I found some great preschool mazes and word searches which are Michael favorites here. And then who can go wrong with Mickey coloring pages for a two year old from here. I even let Jon use markers. He is always begging for markers but I usually insist on crayons for him. However, I realized how much easier it is for him to make bright color markings with the markers - he just cannot push hard enough with the crayons. The boys had a blast.

Of course as soon as I got the boys settled I turned and found Becca had already cleared her tray. Luckily she is so fascinated watching her brothers that she lasted through chore time like that.

I'm glad to know I'm not the only one who bribes my kid to be quiet with cheerios! Way to go mama.
